    Thread: Harlequin Appreciation Thread

    1. 05-02-2007 12:22 AM #141
      I had a woman follow me about 10 miles up the road once, noticed her right off the bat, she made every turn I did, finally I pulled into the Lowes parking lot (where I was going) I get out and ask if there is anything I can do to help her, and she said "I just want to take a picture of your car, its so cute"

      I couldn't wait drive the harlequin again so I took it out for one last drive tonight, before my last bit of parts get here tomorrow had to grab a new picture of it.

      and I win page 5 I rule

      Yeah. Because I want some dude out there who wants to get back at me for something I didn't do.
      On behalf of all the Harlequin owners in North Carolina, I'd like to thank you for making them all targets.

      It wasn't a bottle of coke...it wasn't even a can of coke. It was a cup of coke. Probably did no damage, and even if it did...you still made the wrong decision.

      and its identity crisis
      I dodged a bullet there. Note to self: cease fire.

      while i agree with jim, i would have at least confronted the guy or gotten his plates. sounds like you pulled some stuntman type ISH. if you are really selling it i know someone in louisville who WILL buy it

      I'm still undecided on the Harlequins. On one hand, they're unique, but on the other hand... they're a little too unique.

      Had 2 opportunities to buy a Harlequin. But the wife put her foot down. Made me buy a MKV GTI instead.

      whenever I'm about to do some type of modification to my car I have bad dreams about the stuff not fitting right, or coming in wrong or breaking when I use them....Its strange.

      Ok question...we got into this debate with my shop forman the other day. he is a 26 year vw tech, so hes been wrenching since mkIs were new. Somehow the Harlequin came up, he said something about them not being named Harlequin, but rather "Benington" edition Golfs. Ive always called and known them as Harlequin, but he insists on it being the "Benington"???

      well, he is sort of right. but not really. the colors used are the 4colors of benetton, which is a clothing company in europe. they happened to sponsor an F1 racing team back in the day, which is where which is why Momo came out with their Benetton eddition steering wheels that are the 4 colors. Volkswagen called their cars a Harlequin though, thats why when you look up the vin it says harlequin. and if you look up the word "harlequin" you get this

      har·le·quin Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[hahr-luh-kwin, -kin] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
      –noun 1. (often initial capital letter) a comic character in commedia dell'arte and the harlequinade, usually masked, dressed in multicolored, diamond-patterned tights, and carrying a wooden sword or magic wand.
      2. a buffoon.
      3. any of various small snakes having bright diamond-pattern scales.
      –adjective 4. fancifully varied in color, decoration, etc.: harlequin pants.
      5. resembling a harlequin's mask: harlequin glasses.

      In Germany the Polo version of our cars is called the Harlekin. They did not get the Golf version over there, although they did get the Color Concept Golfs, the Bon Jovi, Rolloing Stone, and Pink Floyd editions amoung others.

      well looks like the car will be on the road by the end of the week.


      HUGE HUGE thanks to SavageMotorsports. Because FK sent them the wrong suspension in the first place i got a great discount on a NIB set of Konig fully adj. height and dampening coils


      guess the hassle and frustrations were worth it
