Sounds like I am parting out my 03 Variant Tip.

164,000km on it.

Overall nice shape but timing chain jumped or some other cam related issue. Car barely runs, not enough to drive. Rattles and coughs fuel out the exhaust.

However, The transmission has never given me a hint of problems although the TC code popped on the same time as when all this other mess happened.

Warranty isnt heavy-duty enough to fix the engine but it should do the tranny,

TC probably would be whatever a normal transmission should would use for replacement. Not a Level 10 or anything like that.

So what would a good trans with new TC be worth to someone? 164km on the trans.

What would you be looking for and where are you located is the better question

Well, I have no idea what they are worth.

Ultimately my very short W8 ownership has proven to be unreasonably expansive and I am losing my shirt on this one.

So I would like "As Much as Possible"

Car is currently located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

I however live about 60 miles from International Falls, MN

That being said, it's not terribly difficult for me to cross the border with it to reduce US bound freight rates.

The place the car is at right now figures $1K. (They are going to charge me $700 in labour simply to drop the engine and trans)

I am also considering ebaying the entire car as-is.

I think that would be your best and most profitable solution imo.

At the risk of derailing the transmission conversation, what color are the interior and exterior of this car? I might be interested in a few bits.

Black interior.

That light blue green color. Not sure of the name.

Like this car:http://germancarsforsaleblog.com/2002-vw-passat-w8-wagon/

I also just bought a kn filter and 3 kn oil filters. All brand new. Have balance belt and tensioner oem new in packaging.
I also ordered a taxi switch that hasn't arrived yet.
New hood release pull.
New r line badgless grill
Gorilla gear vw cargo liner

But ultimately will probably try and auction the whole thing and see what happens.
