Hello, I would be interested in the 2005. Would you have pictures? I do check on ebay but most people are asking to much. There are people asking $20,000 for a manual gl convertible.My local dealer has a gl automatic for 19,800 after rebate.

Make your dealer find you one. Have them earn their pay! :)


There has got to be leftover '05s out there! :(


Here's ours, that's my hubby and son. Car (and family) not for sale..... ;)

Is it my imagination or is he rolling BACKWARDS? :confused: :D

Back on subject...

1. Why is your signature 2001Covertable when 'verts' started in '03?

2. You don't want an '05, you want an '03 GLX or at least an '04 GLS. Why? The '03 GLX has the convertible top flaps (note the big 'holes' in the pic of the '05 model above, right in front of the top), self-dimming rear view mirror and rain sensitive wipers. The '04 has the top flaps but no self-dimming rear view mirror and rain sensitive wipers, but I don't like those features anyway (my '03 Jetta GLX wagon has them).

3. Good luck finding a turbo with stick.

Good luck finding a GLX period. They're RARE! And I've got one...in manual, too...Muhahahaha! Anyway, they only made them for part of '03. Sure, we've got the name, the auto wipers, and auto mirror, but the '04 GLS's came optional with xenon headlights and headlight washers, as well as a standart CD player instead of a tape deck. Plus, you could order sport seats, and they modified the side airbags to extend higher to provide some head protection. I just think that those features are a little more functional, and you can always add the auto mirror yourself, although the same is not true for the auto wipers. The mirror has red LED mood lighting a la Audi, which is sort of cool.

Unless you got an early '04 cuz you wrecked your Turbo S, in which case you got the HID's/washers :bigthumb: , improved airbags :bigthumb: , leather sport seats :bigthumb: and stoopid tape player :mad: ...:D
