Default wtt/wts: 2000 vw jetta vr6-pic up

as the title states i have a 2000 volkswagen jetta vr6 (mark 4) with 126k miles on it. It runs great and is the harder to find GLX package which is fully loaded with moonroof, leather interior, heated seats as well as power everything. The interior is in excellent shape with carbon fiber DINOC vinyl accents to cover up the ugly factory wood grain trim. Prettymuch factory interior except for a 2004 GLI double din factory monsoon radio i put in to replace the crappy sony cd player that was in it. The exterior is pretty clean but has dents and scratches but nothing out of the ordinary i dont think for an 11 yr old car.

Mods:
Ecs tuning brand new stage 1 clutch with pressure plate, clutch and lightened 13.5 lb billet steel flywheel.(factory flywheel is 18 lbs)

Ecs tuning FK highline series full suspension kit with struts and coils up front and coils and shocks in the rear. I went ahead and bought all new upper and lower bushings, bearings and hardware to make sure it was all fresh. It did lower the car 1.4" i believe all the way around and now looks like it should have from the factory.. Not a bad ride either like most lowering kits.

New powercat high flow catalytic convertor with 2 1/4" piping to maintain backpressure and retain the torque this engine is known for. Has a borla resonator and borla muffler with intercooled tip as well. Very nice throaty sound and not overly loud droaning like the fart can that it came with!

New factory Bosch 120 amp alternator two months ago and new water pump last year. Newer yokohama avid touring s tires with about 5k miles on them. This also has had many little things changed such as plugs, full synthetic oil changes and more just as preventative maintenance.

The bad:
The car does have an oil leak very typical of these cars. Could be the rear main seal or the intake gasket or a mixture im not sure.

Also has a dent in the rocker from hitting an animal and leaving the pavement as a result

Lastly when the car is cold the engine has what sounds like a heat shield ratlle from 2-4k rpms and then it dissappears when warm.

Nothing affects the cars performance and drivability

I am mainly looking to trade for a prerunner ranger or a yfz 450 and cash..maybe a yfz and a ranger i dont know but im asking $6000 obo.
No need to sell but just miss my ranger and my toys.
