Enjoy the GLI Steve! Saw one in traffic the other day, thought it looked nice. Could use a V8 but what couldn't.

Haha . If he knew my history he'd see that I was one of the lucky ones who never had those issues.

Sorry to see you go but Congrats on the sale! I paid 22k for mine back in 2/2018 with 37k so I'd say you did really well!

Yeah, I paid $20k for mine about the same time with the same mileage, although mine was a 2012. It seems like the prices of these things are holding, because they're often fondly referenced on auto blogs. I actually had a guy leave a note on mine the other day, asking if I was willing to sell.

Nice price for your 1. I think a clean 135i in the right spec has enjoyed very strong residual value over the past decade. You surpassed me on mileage. I'm still at 44,000 something because I just don't have the time to drive it.

Modern Volkswagens are good cars. A colleague of mine, actually the one who inspired me to buy a 135i, and now two of them, replaced his 2011 135i with a 2012 GTI that he has had ever since. He loves the car and it's given him very few problems. The GLI is also a really good choice. I would say it's everything the GTI is, but in a more attractive (especially the most recent generation) sedan form. I like the Jetta anyway. A buddy of mine had a 2014 5-speed with one of the first new 1.8T engines that was excellent at altitude (at 5,000 feet it could keep pace with my E36 M3), and another former colleague of mine has a 2017 Jetta 1.4T 5-speed that we just took to the Bay Area and back a few months ago. We averaged almost 40 MPG going 80! I can't say I'd ever buy another VAG product after my Audi S4 experience, but I think the GLI will work well for you. Best of luck and enjoy!

Hope you enjoy your car for many years, Chris.

Never say never! I thought I was done with BMW in 1995. Just never said it out loud.
Found an '08 E88 in 2015 that I had to have.

Change and change back.... I swore off when I sold my X5, then bought an E60 545i, the the 1er after that. Same thing with their motorcycles too.

I bet the GLI is a good substitute.

Wish you all the best with the new ride, looks like a killer deal

Best of luck to you and your family, Steve-O! Enjoy the V-Dub. They can be lots of fun. (Have had three myself... '65 Bug, '78 Rabbit, '90 Jetta.) Keep the Esteban moniker so we can find you in the VW forums.

Peace... Mack

Thanks, Mack. Best of luck to you and yours as well. Yeah, my first car was a '68 Bug. Loved that car a lot, this one too.

Take care, buddy. Have always enjoyed talking with you. You're one of the good guys in my book.

The GLI will have tons of problems. It is the nature of German cars, but VW products are notorious for poor quality control. Also, it's FWD with a rear beam axle with a tiny weak little 4-cylinder engine.

When my 135i hits the 10 year ownership mark, out the door it goes. It'll be in great shape, because I don't flog it and carefully service it. I'll be going back to Mazda for sure!
