      I just got a Mk3 vr a couple months ago. I also have a 2.0 jetta so this will make this my second jetta. I am the second owner of it and the previous owner kept it in great condition. I even have the purchase original documents from 97'. It has common wear and tear but its not bad. Im happy i don't have to worry about the paint, well for now at least. Sorry for some of the crappy pics

      --Some of the pics before i bought it--









      --More Recent Ones--





      --Today i test fitted some stock 17" bbs i got at Show n' Go so here is a pic ill throw in--

      Nice. The more I see cars like that, the more I wish I held out for a VR... oh well, that's what they invented the future for.

      Yea i picked them up from show n' go. I think they are the exact same stock obd1 bbs wheels for the glx b/c i analyzed them and they look the same but instead of them being a 15'' they're 17'' so i had to get them. Im not going too low i mean its nyc lol (worst roads on the planet i think) but its about 3'' in the front and 4'' in the back i haven't adjusted them to my set height yet

      Its been a while guys i know been really busy. But I've done a couple of miscellaneous things with her. I've been saving to do a 24v build which I'm excited for in the near future. We'll see how it goes

      -Got a badgeless grill from h20
      -Put in some heavy duty strut mounts
      -Vr lip

      Nice looking car. Paint looks damn near perfect, as well as your interior. Those 17's look really good on there and I'm not usually a fan of 17's and mk3s. Well done sir
