    $3800 -- 2000 Ducati ST4 F/S or Trade

    Probably the least crazy offer I've received so far!
  2. I wanted that thing hella bad, almost listed the Rover and went to look at it. A LSB M3 is the first car that ever actually caught my eye, and the reason I'm into cars, specifically BMWs, today.
  3. Trades = would be interested in possibly trading for a manual, not completely rusted out vehicle. Could add some cash on my end, not afraid of project cars either! 2000 Ducati ST4 (916cc) 25,xxx miles Corbin seat with backrest ($$$$) Matching hard case saddlebags ($$$$) Forza carbon exhaust ($$$$) Carbon accessories (clutch cover, tank cover) Recent maintenance: New timing belts @ 24,500 Valves checked @ 24,500 New battery @ 24,900 Oil change + filter @ 24,900 New headlight @ 24,900 *** have receipts for belts, battery, and oil. Valves were checked, did not need adjustment *** Bike is parked inside, on a battery tender. I'm the 3rd owner, last owner bought it sometime around 2003/2004. The original battery finally died this past October right before I parked it for the year. Rides beautifully, has all the charm of a dry clutch Ducati This bike feels every bit as strong/quick as my old 916, and these look fantastic in yellow! No test rides without cash in hand. I've been burned before with people crashing my bikes on test rides. Less
  4. I know nothing of these cars, what's a realistic price for it? Wasn't it listed a while back for much higher?
  5. *** SOLD *** WiBimmers folks! Anyone else looking to switch to the dark side? Looking for a reliable DD to keep miles off that minty 289k mile e30?? Boy, have I got the whip for you! Recently cleaned out the vape juice! No airbags so you don't have to worry about street cred! Best of all, I have a wooden 917 style shift knob I might throw in if a forum member purchases the car... If anyone was interested in trading, I *might* consider a partial trade for a manual BMW + cash, but it would have to be primarily cash (aka I'd consider a cheap project e36/e30/e34/e28 but would need at least $2500-3k). 2010 Volkswagen Golf 2.5127,xxx5 speed manualGood tires (approx 90% tread)Clean title, ready to roll!****Heated Seats!Moon roof!Bluetooth!****When I got it it was 100% bone stock. I did an oil change using the ECS tuning billet oil filter housing upgrade, with liqui-moly fluids. The stock plastic oil filter housing had been leaking; the aluminum housing will last forever and cost $88.The next thing I did was get 20% window tint from TNT tinting in Middleton Wisconsin. They are extremely reputable, and the tint comes with a lifetime scratch warranty.Shortly after acquiring the vehicle, the rear passenger caliper started sticking. I paid a local shop $961 to replace both rear calipers, brake pads, rotors, and brake hoses. The e-brake will still need to be adjusted, because it tends to occasionally stick on that passenger rear side. Should be an easy adjustment if you're handy with a screwdriver, Pelican Parts says it's a 1hr job. I priced the vehicle accordingly given the overall condition, recent upgrades and maintenance. TEXT OR EMAIL PREFERRED, I WORK 3RD SHIFT SO I SLEEP ODD HOURS BETWEEN JOBS. 920-340-0006
  6. I just recently started having the issue as well, giving me a (sign_in) error...

    Volkswagen Help? - rear brake sticking

    I've listed it for sale lol Lots of interest, seems to be priced right, now if I could just get someone to actually show up when they say they will that would be great... I'll likely find myself in a GTI at some point, I actually enjoy this car quite a bit, but I'd rather have the money for 1) a ring and 2) house down payment so I can quit my second job..
  8. If I find out if these can fit an e46 323i, my brother would likely scoop these up!
  9. That's my old car lol It's a little worse off since it left my garage.

    Volkswagen Help? - rear brake sticking

    It's old school cables, they basically just had someone pulling the lever, and other under the car to make sure the cables were moving properly and releasing/catching properly.
  12. I know i'm a traitor, but y'alls is the only friends I have.... My newly acquired 2010 VW Golf, (acquired via blood money in the form of my e30), has run into an issue with the rear passenger brake sticking occasionally, causing a very warm back end and smell of hot metal. A shop picked up the work for me, replacing the rear calipers, rotors, and pads. I drove the VW home, and found the issue persists. Its typically only noticeable after extended highway trips at 55+. Occasionally the car will nearly "hold" itself on smaller inclines, other times it seems to roll back as most manual vehicles do. I brought it back the next day and they replaced the passenger rear brake hose. Leave the shop, issue is still there. Bring it back to the shop, they disassemble the rear brakes and make sure everything is installed properly. They checked the parking brake and determined it looked OK. Drive it home, issue persists. Now they're "guessing" it could be my brake booster or master cylinder, and have offered to replace those for the cheap sum of $1115 with no guarantee it will fix anything. Has anyone ever heard of a booster or master cylinder causing 1 specific wheel to drag occasionally?
