I found a nice looking 2001 Golf 2.0 for sale.. $8,500 is what the dealer is asking. I has about 40,000 miles on it and it looks really clean. Silver with black interior. Best part is that the VW/Porsche/BMW dealer is right across the street.

My 2 cents...

If you really are looking for a car for school, I would highly suggest the TDI if you can afford it, or any diesel for that matter. I've never owned any water pumpers, but here's why I say to do this:

Depending on how much driving you do and what climate you will be in, you will save lots and lots of money. Basically, you can get your fuel for about $0.10 per gallon by adding a T-valve, some hoses, and a vegetable oil tank. It's a common conversion with many kits on the market. With your TDI and the conversion, you can run dinodiesel, biodiesel, and veggiediesel. Why? Mr. Diesel designed his engine to run on peanut oil. You just have to be willing to gather waste vegetable oil form restaurants and filter it so you don't get french fries in your fuel tank. My next car will be a diesel engine no matter what the price of fuel is.

There's plenty more info out there...

I may have found the ultimate cool car for school. There is a 1977 911 s for sale right by my house. It has a 3.2 liter engine in it and it looks to be in good shape. Anybody know anything about engine codes??? 930 101 104 5R is that engine really a 3.2 liter...




or maybe one of these...

If weather is an issue, and reliability is a factor.. go subaru..

for about 10k, you can get a post 2002 2.5 RS which is functional, cool and has a flat four.. for a little more a 20002 WRX, which is all the above and fun..

Just be careful, you will find yourself modding the Rex instead of the VW...

Had it for over 50k and find it to be reliable, and efficient.. as long as you stay off the accelerator..

Just my 2 cents and putting another option out there..

Alex

Thw WRX is out of the question. I have no self control with a turbo car. My freind is a WRX guru so I would go NUTS with performance parts. I have never been in a civic that wasn't RICED out so I don't know how well they ride or how comfortable they will be to drive 1,000 miles a week. Is the Boxster not a reliable car??? I have decided against the 911 after looking at a few maintaince items...
