1993 Volkswagen Corrado SLC

Up for auction, my bone stock 1993 Corrado VR6 with approximately 127,500 miles and a clean title. Here are the details:
Lovingly maintained during my 2-year ownership, using only synthetic oil, premium gas, and one of the best VW mechanics in the Chicago area. The clutch, battery, tires, serpentine belt, and spark plugs are relatively new (all are 2 years old or less). I've put $5900 in parts and labor into the car since owning it, including an all-new cat back Borla stainless steel exhaust installed, replaced the radiator, thermostat, oil cooler, some engine gaskets, and hoses, and a new CV joint/boot and some suspension work done. All maintenance records for this work done during my ownership are available.
The car has never been in an accident, so the body and frame are straight and there's no rust or bondo on the body. The owner before me had it repainted but kept the original black color and the respray has held up well, with no bubbling, peeling, or deterioration otherwise. There are some car wash scratches scuffs and parking dings to the paint, but no major dents or damage. The original tan leather interior has some typical wear in places, but is complete is in very good condition overall, with no rips, tears, or gouges. And it has replacement black floor mats, not the originals. It has all its original glass, including the fog light lenses (which bear the inevitable Corrado cracks).
Again, it's in very close to unmodified original condition, down to the original factory radio (the tape deck still works!) and Speedline rims that were standard only on the 1993 model year. It even has the original VW manual and set of keys. The engine is an original especially strong factory VR6, and it hasn't been chipped or otherwise modded. The transmission is also original and I've had the fluid changed with VW-recommended fluid. I've noticed that second gear requires a slightly softer touch when the car and weather are hot, but everything else shifts smoothly in all conditions. The A/C condenser and compressor were removed by the previous owner, but the car still has power steering and strong heat. The sunroof still slides open and closed but as of recently isn't tilting. I've shut off the Corrado's notoriously pesky power seatbelts so that they're fixed in the up position. Since I've owned it, the spoiler hasn't been working either automatically or with the switch, but I haven't done any work on it. And I haven't tried the heated seats to see if they work since the heater has been toasty warm even on the coldest Chicago days.
Since I've owned it the last two years, it's been driven with spirit, but not aggressively, on limited basis in the city and on the highway (less than 6K miles in the last two years). I've kept and used it as a driver, not a show car, but it presents well and still turns heads.
And it's been garage kept and not driven during the winter for the majority of my ownership. But realize that it is a vintage 1993 car with expected wear, certainly not a new car or a completely restored car, and thus is sold as is with no expressed or implied warranties.
