With as rare is uni red sports are, and with as low as a mileage you have on your hands... you will have a MUCH easier time getting a larger sum of money if the car was back to the stock appearance.


I know if i was looking for one, this factory color/trim combo is really high on my list, but i wouldn't want to spend that much, just to de-mod it myself.


Good luck with the sale.

I didn't think you could really get a bank or insurance to value the car for more than just plain old book value?

I don't see many people seeing the value in spending $20k on a $6k car.

Agreed. And when you mod a car like that, you will never get the money out of it that you put into it.

Has the timing belt been done? Mileage is low, but its got 11 years on it if its original. Ticking time bomb.

I think you have a very, very limited audience for all the mods, nice as they are, and as well done. It's obvious you have put a lot of time, money, and effort into your car, and I certainly don't mean to put down, or minimize all your hard work, but...

Consider... most ppl into heavy modding want to do their own thing with their own ideas, not spend all that money buying someone else's.

Proper servicing and undeniable records would mean a lot more.

And agreed, who would spend $20k for a $6k car. That's how any bank or any insurance company would look at it. It's just a friggin' car. You need to be thinking you might get an extra $1k, maybe $2k, or so, and consider it a lesson learned about modding. You might try putting it on eBay, set your reserve, and see what happens, every now and then a couple nuts will come along, with more money than sense, and get into a bidding frenzy. Or just keep bumping, and bumping, and bumping...

Oh man, this is one pristine Nb!!! It has one of my top 3 favorite NB specific mods on it, the BugMod 3" Ram-Air CAI Blinker.

That was one great product the boys from Chi'town came up with.

Well it is gorgeous, and should get you more than book, that is without a doubt.

But $15k over is a little aggressive IMHO though. If this was a featured (i.e. Front cover) car in any of the VW mags and/or had a long show car history then......

But, it is an extremely well done concept though. A lot of time and talent has gone into the execution of the Red Baron Theme!

So definitely put it on e-bay, set your reserve and roll the dice. Nothing to lose their.

All the best with your sale! Hope you find someone who falls instantly in love with it that is willing to pay something extra for such a great concept car.

I agree with all the above statements. 10->12k tops?

I like the car, but some of the mods are to personalized. 19k?

I love sport bugs but that's steep, do you want to really sell it? Or keep it?

Would of thought more on the lines of, trying to recoup what was spent on it.

Over here it would go for book price (Standard Bug price for that year model)

Seen Bug's over here with thousands thrown at them, then the owners find out it'll go for book price, the modifications come off sharpish and the Bug sells for standard, and all the mods go on ebay loose :(
