    im looking at a 92 jetta carat ,2.0 8v manual trans, 155,xxx mi, power windows and locks a/c works, sheet metal is straight, car runs great but the rear brakes are fucked


    it needs everything from the spindle out on the left side and it needs a tail light
    i figured the my price on all the parts is ~$150 (i work at a VW dealer)
    it needs spindle, bearings, shoes, drum, and a wheel cylinder for the brakes
    and just a lense for the light

    it should be about a 2 hour job for the brakes

    what do you guys think i should offer?
    i was thinking around $300



    can anyone say VR6? :ph34r:

    90 and newer MK2's in good cond can be up to $1500

    Sweet man that will be a dope project car! The VR6 will be a good swap into that car. There is a guy around here who has a an MK2 with corrado motor with a huge blower on it that sounds like a fire engine. The thing is nuts, plus it makes a tad over 300hp.

    its odd that swapping in a V6 into a mk2 is easier than a b-series into an ef
    wiring is plug and play and you use oem mounts
