And if so, could i swing by and check it out. Also, how many miles does it have. Whats its history IE how many owners, any service done to it. Thanks alot you can call me at either 413 567 **** or 413 847 **** ------------- Hi, Thank you for your interest in my car.This is a 2005 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA GLS,A/C,Leather,Body type: Sedan,Engine: 5 Cylinder 2.5L,Exterior color: White,Interior color: Tan ,Transmission: Automatic,Fuel type: Gasoline,VIN: 3VWDG71K55M603808,only 40,000 miles on it.It's Campanella White with Pure Beige Leather interior.It averages over 30 miles per gallon. Here you can find more pictures of the car: http://s512.photobucket.com/albums/t321/2005VOLKSWAGENJETTAGLS/ (if the above link does not work copy and paste it into a new web browser window). The car has been well taken care of, always kept in the garage.Flawless exterior/interior condition,no scratches and no dents.It has never been involved in an accident.The engine starts and drives like new and the paint looks great.It comes with US clear title which will be signed and notorized in the buyer's name.Have original manuals and all keys. I'm an US Air Force Sgt.currently stationed in United Kingdom.The car is here with me. It was bought in the US and shipped to Europe, but it was never permanently registered here, the car is still registered in the US.The car is for sale locally as well, but there are slim chances of this to happen. In order to be able to register this car here in UK the buyer would have to pay very high import/custom taxes that will double the price. So I decided to sell the car back in the US. The price is $4,800.00 including shipping from UK to the US and delivery to your home address. So if you decide to buy this car or need further information please get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you ------------------- sounds very good. So you are located in the UK? Do you have a number i can reach you at? ------------------- I don't have access to a phone.We can talk further via email because it's the only form of communication as fast as the phone. I will have the car shipped from UK by an US Air Force cargo plane so there won't be any additional shipping costs. Also I will arrange for a truck to transport the car to your home address or, if you like, you can pick it up from the nearest airport in your area. The shipping will take 6-8 days, depending on your location.Shipping will be door to door,to your home address,somebody must be home when the car arrives to sign for the reception.The car will arrive with all the papers and documents required for registration and the keys. The clear title and the bill of sale will be already signed by me. The payment will be done through eBay.You will send the money to eBay and as soon as the payment is confirmed they will notify me to proceed with the shipping. I will ship the car, you will receive it and you will have 5 days for inspection, both the car and the paperwork and the option to accept or reject the car.The inspection time period will begin as soon as you sign for receiving the car at your requested address.During all this time eBay will hold the money into a trust account.So, this is not a blind transaction,you can see the car before decided to buy it.If you are satisfied with the car and decide to keep it you inform eBay about this and they will release the money to me. If the car is not as advertised and decide not to keep it eBay will refund you the money, no questions asked, and shipping back the car will be my concern. I think this is more than fair for the both of us.Please take in to consideration that I will get paid only after you receive the car and make sure everything is as agreed. If you agree with these terms and you have the money, send me your full name and the address where you want the car to be delivered to and I will initiate the transaction with eBay. You will receive all the transaction details from them. I will appreciate an answer as soon as possible. Thank you ------------------ Im pretty suspicious at this point. It sounds too good to be true. Its nice to hear about the ebay trust fund thing or whatever but he is so formal and not so personal. Dosent sound too good. What do you TB'ers Think???
