||the last 300. Not to mention the crooked nose panel, and what appears to be damaged pinch welds. The backward front wheels get a pass, although an outfit selling some of these cars that they have listed should pay more attention to detail.
I'd assume that a non "300" '96 would actually be less desirable than earlier TTs, due to the OBDII, but what impact that has on value, I can only guess. Again, it goes back to their clientele - may be easier to ask that price to a deep-pocketed crowd.
All I can say is I'm glad I got mine when I did. It's needed some work, but I'd be paying at least double now.
