      Might not be the best time, people away on holidays (if they are lucky) or just too full of turkey to roll off the couch .
      Going to Autohaus to pick up the MK IV. Just routine stuff, but will be around a grand anyway . And that's without replacing the rear beam rubber bumpers that they recommended. I figure I'll live with the rough ride at that price.
      Cheers

      yeah the rear beam bushings are a bitch, and something that you can't really do yourself

      and everyone just doesn't surf here except me

      picking up a mkII on saturday

      You're going backwards . MK3 to a MK2, what's next?!
      What are the details on the MK2?
      Happy New Year to all Winnipeg Dubbers, be careful out there

      Howdy all, Recently bought a 1999 VW Jetta MK3 Wolfsburg. Hopefully I will be able to start doing some basic mods to it in the near future, hope I can hit you guys up for some advice.

      Man, I haven't checked this thread in a looooooooong time. It's good to see more dubber's in the city. I do all ym local talkings on ecode now, and I really forgot this thread existed. Can't wait for some summer cruises. Happy New Year folks!

      By the by, I pulled up to my gf's apartment last night, and what do I see but a IY20th from Minnesota parked out front. Obviously, I parked behind it and took a picture. Made me happy.

      I've never been to the s&s. Might have to go this year, if not to enter, at least check out the cars.

      Nice lookin MK2. very clean...

      It was interesting reading our American friend's comments on the monopoly money, the yellow plug and the sticker.

      i chuckled at it too, nobody understands our pain

      and it is clean, although i have some things to do so that it's perfect (finish tune up, re-hang doors, fix broken door handle, claybar and wax). lots of fun to drive. saftetying it this week

      edit: the PO didn't take the greatest care, it had the dirtiest air filter i have ever seen but i'm slowly getting it there

      Hey, just thought I'd post up in here

      Picked up a 2000 GTI GLX VR6 in Reflex Silver, 126k kms on it, needs some work, but will be a fun car once she's up to my standards!

      to my dismay, it was lowered on springs, the ride is **** LOL.

      I'm used to koni's with a 3inch drop on my cavalier, sadly tho, the GTI also wasnt well taken care of, I've got alot of work ahead of me, the AC i think needs to be serviced, the Climatronic needs some work, oilpan needs to be replaced, pass side CV shaft replaced, alignment an a major tune up...

      *sigh* she's still on the road, and driving well, the VR6 sure has some kick!

      i dunno, i just want a clean start. you think the price is high?


    24. 02-13-2009 12:49 PM #164
      no man i meant if, as in like if you want to. the price is def not high if there is no rust. its got the high compression engine which is at least a little sought after. its a rare car for winnipeg definetly worth it
