So after 7 years, I finally got the VW I orginally wanted. In my youth (early 20s) I was driving a 94 AUTO accord.. nice car but I wanted a manual tranny. I didnt know how to drive manual at the time.. my then brother in law, gave me a ride on 96 GLX VR6 that the local priest was selling. I didnt have enough money so he ended up selling it so some one else. Months later.. after much searching, I could not find a passat GLX 5 speed.. I ended up getting a 97 GLX VR6 Jetta.. which turned out to be a big POS. I knew nothing of cars at the time.. but the Love for VW was planted.. 3 VW later.. I GOT MY PASSAT.
I bought the car from a guy who was moving back to Europe so he was in a hurry. He had issues with the Rediness Test at the smog because he had disconnected the battery days before.. I did some searching.. found a Guide using VAG com to test the car. THANKS Vortex!
Car was pretty Dirty... so I just spent about 12 Hrs getting back to looking good.. did a quick wash/wax. Also cleaned the interior and the engine. I plan to clean everything again in a couple of months but wanted to get most of the dirt of.. blah blah blah pic time!

Cover some of the connections before the engine wash
