  • black mk8 from h-town

    hey fellow mk8 fans... I'm Matt from Houston.

    My mk8 story is quite a sad one.

    About two months ago, I bought a MINTY MINT '98 toreador red collectors edition with 61k miles and man was she gorgeous. one owner, garage kept... every oil change was done at the dealership that he bought the car at in Houston. Everything was flawless and not a single clip or piece broken. Rode like a new car.
    I was so excited about this clean car, i immediately threw on some cobra front 13" brakes, hubs front/rear and some 18" silver saleens with new summer tires. Talk about perfect, rite??
    Then the inevitable happened... a old spanish woman ran a red light in her big old Texas size SUV and t-boned me. Down goes a true survivor.
    Long story long, insurance doesn't recognize value of this car and i'm out a few thousand. (shout out to aggressive insurance, yes that is their actual name).

    Moving forward, I picked up a '98 triple black LSC with 90k. Nowhere near as mint which is why i jumped on here. Hoping i can find my old car to pull some parts off of. I know I'll need the wheel speed sensors as well as some interior pieces.

    if anyone wants to get rid of some kewl parts... let me know!

    Welcome, Matt!

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your CE, but glad to hear you got right back on that horse, and signed up here. Your new '98 is a very desirable color also., and 90k is nothing to scoff at. That's still a "low mileage" car, by our standards.

      Thank Mike! Glad to see this forum isn't as dead as I made it out to be. I'm used to the mustang forums ('04 Mach 1) which is just nonstop. I'm sure you'll see me posting here soon enough... snooping around for parts.

        No problem. Matt. We're a small, but dedicated group. You'll get replies, but we just don't have the numbers (and post volume) of the mustang people.

                  Welcome. You need to look into collector car insurance and an agreed upon value of the car. Otherwise as you found out they just go by millage and book value.

                    Can we rig the system and drive our book values up?
