I Used To Be Impressed, Now I'm Just Impressive.:R
Well thanks to Corey, my TDI got some new wheels, just have to get my wife to let me buy another set of new tires after just buying the set for the 15". Does anyone need a complete set of 15" with brand new tires (Less than 200 miles) with full warranty, 40,000 mile and lifetime balancing.
Wheels - Ariettas (5X100)
Tires - Falken ZIEX ZE-612 (195/65R15)

Man this place is slow... Where's Kuma, Shovelhead, Joe and beachball???!!!
I wish I could make it out there. Between my TDY's and my wives surgeries, I never have the time.
im parting the Mk2 GLI coming up here soon. the good handling parts, short shifter, seats and TMtuning Projector Aero headlights are going to be removed(with cross member). wiring harness will be taken off to be saved for an engine swap into a scirroco when i find one.
if someone wants to buy the rolling shell with NEW neuspeed lowering springs and unknown struts with out the stuff mentioned above, ill take 200 dollars. otherwise its going to scrap.
Transmission is for sale as well. its a 2Y. short ratio or whatever, Tom told me what it is, so i am not positive what it positively is.
WTH on scraping the Jetta. That is a pretty clean shell, was even bummed Tom parted it to the extent he did for you. Oh well life goes on.
Someone buy my track bike, tell your "fast" friends at work I'll even bring them to their first track day if they aren't a huge DB.

I hate Volkswagens.
.:Racing is easy just remember Fast in slow out....or was it the other way around.
Turn signals are your friends, and exist for a reason
So the Mk2 is sold. It will be used as a track car from now on.
For those of you who keep thinking I destroyed this car, guess again.
I bought the car from Tom and it was incomplete. No engine, no trans, no carpet, no headliner, no pillar trim, broken tail lights, bunch of little stuff missing.
The seats that are in the car are mint. Minus the fact the foam on the bolsters is squished down, but no tears.
Ignition is jacked up, so it has a push button. The paint is all dirty because he didn't fix the rear main seal leak for 4 years. So the entire engine bay and rear of the car was coated in oil.
Just some food for thought, for the people who are messaging me and telling me I shouldn't have patted the car out since it was soooooo well maintained before web Tom had it.
Wheels going on the TDI today!!
Also, I bought the car so it will still be fully restored over a lengthy period of time so that it can be done to perfection. This is to be my project to bond with my boys and teach them how to use tools. I actually requested just the shell so I can make the car my own. I don't want anyone's finished product. The joy of making a car that fits my personality is exactly why I went with a shell. I will be consulting with Tom on most of the mechanics to be sure so part of his legacy will live in it.
Well I finally got the wheels on the TDI yesturday. Discount Tire was being weird for some reason. The wheels I got say 5x112, but they are redrilled for 5x100. They didn't want to put new tires on the rims for they didn't think they would fit, which I can see where there coming from 5x112 won't fit on 5x100. I told them they where on a MKIV GTI and they said yea they will work on a GTI, but a TDI is different (Lug pattern) Really guys!! A Golf is just a slow GTI..... Anyways, I had to take the wheel off in the parking lot and mount it up and show them that they worked before they would put tires on them......Well I got the RS4 like I wanted, but I don't know if I like them now, for they are not your normal looking RS4 rims. I was looking for all Hyper silver and these are machined face with gun metal. Watcha think..??? You won't hurt my feelings at all and yes the wheel gap fix is coming, so back off!!!!
Guess it's just Mad Hacker and I running the tread now...LOL!! I know I have been gone for a while, but did something happen at the meetings?? Before I left the tread was turning page after page...
Life's a garden, just dig it!!
04.5 GLI ecs n75 race valve, custom short ram, turboxs bpv, tsudo 3in turbo back exhaust, forge tip.
I will be coming to the Thursday meet with Bondo and supplies to show how to do some light body work. Anyone interested should show up. Next up I will be re-spraying the bimmer.
so, sadly i had to give the Audi back to Audi North America, but im writing a review on it so that i can get another Audi... Hopefully the R8GT or the R8 Spyder.
BTW, whos heading to Southern Worthersee?
My parents live in the mountains near Helen, im thinking about hanging there if i can go home.
