I'll be selling my 2018 GTI Autobahn soon - started a new job that provides a company car, so it's time to say goodbye to the best car I've ever had.
It's Unitronic Stage 1+ ECU and TCU tuned, plus I've done a couple small tweaks via OBD11. I think just turning down the soundaktor volume a bit, and turned off auto start/stop.
I'll most likely just sell it to carmax, carvana, or one of those types of services since I don't feel like dealing with private party.
Should I revert to stock, or leave the tune and OBD tweaks? I'm thinking revert to stock, then post my VIN somewhere on this forum, that way if someone wants, I can ship them my unitronic cable and send them my account info, then they can install it on their own.
I once traded in a tuned 99’ Civic Si, supercharged, some other things. I put together a list of what was done, and my email, then stuck that list in the owners manual. I figure most people would grab the manual and flip through it when they buy a new car.
Sure enough, the new owner reached out for more info when he came across my note.
You could maybe try that. Detail what you’ve done, and leave your email tucked away in the owners manual books.
