      damn dude. I'm really impressed by not only by the quality work you guys are putting out, but also by the commitment involved [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      I think im in love with your gauge setup, could you provide a some details about them? I'll be starting a project '78 bunny pretty soon and if it turns out half as nice as yours I'll be pretty proud.

      the gauges are autometer nexus gauges i bought at
      http://www.egauges.com
      from left to right: fuel level,speedo,tach,water temp,oil temp,oil press,boost gauge.
      u can set them to these colours:






      depending on the colour setting they change the colour to alarm you when u hit the maximum you set before for example:
      i setted the rev limit to 6700rpm, when i hit 6700rpm the whole display changes his colour to red like a shiftlight.
      you can set every gauge seperately to your own specs and if you want .
      i am going to order some more as well but need $$$ first
      afr,voltmeter,fuel press is going to come in when i upgrade the engine in the winter.
      they are a bit pricey though since the shipping and the friggin customs cost big time.

      This car looks more beautiful every time I see it. Love the gauges too. Very slick.

      here we go again!
      i am working 90 hours per week to work up hours-next week i am going back to berlin for 2 weeks vacation
      i want to ride her badly...
      the tuning shop tweaked her to 200whp and told me that the gearboxmount will not take the stress so long so the will fabricate
      a stronger one VR6 style
      the testdrive showed that the wheels spin up to 4th gear
      let me testdrive
      i need to buy a winter beater as well (mk4 or A3 )
      any opinions??

      dont rush to test drive it, let them get a lil more hp first as far as a winter beater car goes, anything tdi, i prefer a mk3 tdi jetta or even a beetle [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      edit: after going back and looking at the wheels above, i think you should get a smart car and rock a matching set of wheels
