      Just to clarify: I'm not stating that those who do this to their own cars are 'bastardizing' them. I'm stating for this car I won't be doing any of that. The condition this car is in deserves to...

      Wow. Keep it stock. These cars are very difficult to come by in this condition and low miles.

      Thanks man. I'm definitely leaning OEM+. Some 14" or 15" wheels with a slight suspension drop. Much like my Scirocco 16V, this car deserves to be honored and not bastardized. That may be a harsh...

      Found out a couple of other things:
      1. My car was built in Germany
      2. The original owner bought it 5 days after my 15th birthday. Nerdy, but fun.

      Picked up some stuff at the local Autozone. From the post above my attempts to bleed the brakes did not go so well.

      Car: $450
      Tow: $103

      Thanks! I'm trying to decide which direction to take it in: resto-mod, OEM+, or retro-hood-ridey look. First off I have to get a couple of things sorted out. Brake pedal is very soft. I tried...

      This car fell in my lap.
      - 1989: the owner originally thought it was an 87, but it's actually an 89.
      - 1 owner (he's 92 and still active!)
      - 67000 miles
      - a/c (still works!)
      - all original
