Also that seems extremely cheap for the minimal issues he has listed. Wonder if the pan cracked/broke and dumped all the oil causing engine failure. I'd replace the pan in his driveway and request it to be fired up before striking a deal. Or haggle a bit and get it for less so you can make your $ back incase the engine isn't any good.
Co-worker bought a GTI brand new in 03, 30k miles after buying it needed a new clutch. VWOA replaced the clutch for free under warranty and he has now gone 100k miles on the clutch they replaced his original one with.
I was thinking some JBWeld qik and fill it back up with oil in the driveway to start it up.
