      Over simplified...

      o

      The car has only been back on the road for 2 years. 4 front ends, 8 sets of wheels and two interiors later this is where it stands.

      I can't seem to find my pictures of the corrado wheels or my glx mesh wheels.

      These were my winter wheels last year.



      I ran the 130mph club and was successful in averaging 134.9mph in one mile from a standing start. I lifted both passes to keep from breaking out of the 140 max speed for the class. I would have stepped up to the 150club but i didn't have the proper safety equipment at the time.



      I am looking around for pictures of the front of the interior with little success, ill go snap a couple in a little bit and upload them later.

      I stopped after backing out of my space this morning and a neighbor backed into me pretty hard. Bent my bumper beam, blew out the light, bent the hatch and lightly dented the slam panel. It's not the end of the world I guess.

      I'm thinkin a bit more shaving in the back and now I have a reason to get new fenders and a mint hood.

      So the insurance company finally came back a few weeks ago with a settlement offer that didn't involve totaling the car. Unfortunately I didn't spend the money making the car pretty. It got a low mileage fresh vr and a mechanical once over. It's running stronger then ever. Now time to collect all the replacement panels and start getting ready for lots of body work this winter.

      Newest set of wheels.


      New plates...and how the rear looks with my fresh tails.

      Back seats are back in...

      The leavenworth drive was last weekend, the car did great keeping up with cars it shouldn't... Namely an RS6 and a stage 4 B5 S4(475 whp)

      I did get this on the way home though

      Started making some noise, and then failed pulling into my apartment complex. No worries though it's already been fixed.

      Thank you very much. But for now I think I'll be holding on to it.

      Most people just want the complete charger setup. Lol

      I spent a few hours today putting a new transmission in it. I left a restaurant a few nights ago and second gear decided to take a permanent vacation. Before you ask, no I was not booming around I was actually following a cop. The replacement trans was a quick find to get me to and fro until I can have mine rebuilt. It has worn second gear synchros, which is going to put a damper on spirited driving for a while.

      As far as upcoming mods, I just picked up a complete SM2 ecu setup for it and have just started reworking the harness to fit my bay. I'm looking forward to having a bit more control.
