It's not often we offer our cars at a discounted price, but I am cutting this restoration short and letting this amazing Euro wagon go asap. I am invested at this point well over $25,000. That said, it could still use some love on the interior, and the paint has some blemishes. Don't get me wrong, there are no rips or tears anywhere inside, no cracks on the dashboard, paint is so shiny and beautiful, etc., but if you measure this wagon against our benchmark standard it falls short. Usually our wagons are in the $40K+ range.

Mechanically speaking it is outstanding. I've just completed $5K or more in mechanics alone. We've done a ton of detailing work, paintless dent removal, new coco mats throughout, pinstripes, freshly painted Bundts with new center caps and new zinc lug nuts, the list goes on and on.

The overall picture is a blisteringly rare configuration with amazing European options and really good colors. That alone makes this a deal at $25,000. Just a fantastic high-end daily driver. This is something I know a lot of you have asked about before, so now is your chance! (Please note if you live in California it's a bit tricky and time consuming to get this car through the state emissions and registration process because it is a European model vehicle).
