We have an R32 with 7K miles, it runs excellent (as expected with only 7K miles on it). We have video of it running, see below.

This would be a sweet swap into a Beetle. We also have a complete drivetrain in the event that you want to get totally insane and do an AWD swap.

Price is $6500 for this setup that includes ECU, harness, exhaust downpipe, all accessories, etc.

Just for comparison, you can get a Reman. R32 engine for $6600 + $3000 core, plus shipping, or a brand new engine for $10,171 + shipping. Those prices are just for the engine from valve cover to oil pan, no accessories, no exhaust manifolds, engine management, etc.

Just wanted to give everyone a good comparison on our price versus new. You can verify these prices at the dealer (which would be higher), or at http://www.1stvwparts.com which usually sells at wholesale (which is the price I quoted above).

Here are a couple of pics of the engine:





Here are links to the videos of it running:

As of right now we have everything except for a good transmission. Here are the price breakdown for the parts, as well as a package deal:

- Engine (7K miles) - $6500
- Trans & Front Haldex unit - $400 (normally $1800)
- Propeller shaft - $200 ($1200 from the dealer)
- Rear diff/haldex unit, axles, trailing arms, etc. - $1750
- Front Axles - $200 each (only have a drivers side at this time)
- Floor Pan - $500
- Front knuckles - $250

Total would be $9800, but as a package, we could do it all for $8000 + shipping

Let us know,
Dean
