bumpin this **** out of the gutter
or maybe back in........
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.
happy new years, checkstops will be EVERYWHERE
the thread i made on it is here http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4179549
86 carat w/ a 5 speed, car is immaculate with no rust. prolly going to become my summer toy. and yeah, my mkIII will likely be for sale mid next year, want something different
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.
Down to only one VAG.

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

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!
