sold my 3 year old golf gti for a profit, replaced it with a bmw m3

The Golf was replaced with a 2022 BMW M3 Competition.

BHPian vj123 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I have not updated this ownership thread for a while and here is a major one.

With crazy used car prices post COVID, I ended up selling this one in the summer of 2021 with a plan of replacing it with a proper performance vehicle. I tried several online retailers and Carvana gave me the best offer. I could have got a little more by selling it privately but I didn’t want to go through the extra hassle. Even after owning it for almost two years and clocking 10k miles, I ended up getting more than what I paid for.

This vehicle will be dearly missed from the garage for several reasons.

  • It was a limited edition and had the right combination of options (blacked out exterior, traditional plaid seats, no sunroof, minimal driver assist features, no major issues or recalls, 6 year 72k mile warranty from factory) within the entire MYs of this platform.
  • It was built in the same timeframe when my son was born and he experienced his first 10 hour roadtrip when took delivery of this vehicle.
  • And finally, my TeamBHP membership was approved (after a 10 year long wait) on the day of taking delivery of this vehicle.

Owning two MK7 GTIs in the past, I love this platform and don’t think any other vehicle in the market offers higher fun to price ratio. One doesn’t have to spend tons of money to have a fun vehicle which is extremely practical as well. In addition, one can find plenty of support from reputed aftermarket companies to explore the complete potential of this platform.
