      Also, completed a 1000 mile road trip to Vegas and back. Averaged around 80mph going up and down thousands of feet of elevation. No issues whatsoever, funny seeing mk3s and 4s break down and stranded around me and I averaged around 55mpg!!

      Yes, an A5 Audi is awesome. Mk5 base model Jetta, meh, it's no Audi.

      01, this might sound kinda gay but driving down to wuste with and parking a few spots down from your car got me obsessed with mk1s. I really want one now. Now I have to deal with waiting till I'm done with school to pick one up.

      Got the rear mounted.



      Oddly enough the rear had holes for the bumper clips. The front had ones just not the right shape. Need to figure out if I should cut the fronts so I can put the clips in.

      How does a rotary work? This one's easy: the magic triangle spins in the peanut and then apex seals come out.

      No actually. The paint is 100% original; I plan on keeping it that way.

      This car has over 500k; why ruin a good thing?
