I picked up a MK4 out of Saskatchewan last fall. Kit was basically unstarted. Previous owner had collected a lot of new parts so I have decided to continue on with his mindset and do a mostly new parts non doner build.
All that said, the kits do pop up occasionally....It took me a couple of years before I found a kit that was a good fit for my tastes. If you are patient they do pop up now and then....
Here is a pic of my MK4 after I picked it up and got the body off. The only work done on the car was a little bit of front suspension work. While I believe the deal was fair for both parties there are a few other inherent risks (ie cross-referencing all the parts with no packing list for one). All part of the fun.
