What To Do If Your 20th Anniversary Edition GTI Has Been Written Off

Having your 20AE written off is not something we want to have happen. But it is a car, and these things happen to cars now and then. The main thing is that you're okay.

In order to be sure that no one is playing a mean prank on anyone, the process of marking a 20AE car as being written off is obviously more complicated. If your 20AE has been written off, please follow these steps:
  • Photograph the deceased car.
  • Email me to let me know, and attach the pictures.
  • Create a new thread in the 20AE/337 forum at VWvortex.
These steps are not meant to embarrass you, but instead to inform the community of this incident, and to provide tangible proof that this unfortunate event has occurred.

New Owners Of Deceased 20th Anniversary Edition GTIs

It's not uncommon for insurance companies to sell cars that have been written off to body shops. And it's possible that some body shops will perform extensive repairs to make the car drivable again. It's also possible that the new owner who buys this 20AE car will not fully realize what it has been through.

If reconstructed properly, these cars might be as good as new again. It is also possible that these cars might be stripped and parted out, and may never be driven again.

The new owner of a deceased 20AE can register as being the new owner of it. But once the car has been written off, it will always appear in this list as being written off, regardless of how many new owners it has.
