      Well I avoid potholes at all costs so it wasnt that. I do drive very... um well, I "drive" my car to its point some times as does the other person who blew their FKs. Not sure how u drive or how hard u push our car but FKs cant keep up with me.

      i have been driving her a lot lately, love this car so much...i have put more miles on her in the last 3 weeks than i have in the last 2.5 years of ownership...i know put the bumpers back on,i had to remove the front again to get her on the alignment rack, and i took off the oettingers so no damage would occur...few pics of my ****ty mk2 daily as welllove the new exhaust note as well.and forgive my rear bumper fitment, i had my euro one on earlier as well...deciding which i like better/.

      It made it to the street! That is a lot of mileage.

      How do you put miles on a car that is not registered?

      What's so special about this?

      Low miles and not totally destroyed? It's not like it's a rare car either way.

      Time to drop it on air.

      the fact that everyone that sees it including techs who work at a porsche garage tell me its immaculate, and the fact you cant find another in this color and condition i guess makes it special.also the fact that i have every gas reciept, service record, window tag from delivery date makes it also a notable example.

      i guess at the end of the day, there is no other car id rather be spending my hard earned cash on.

      if you had a tech crash one of your cars , you would understand why i remove the plates...i registered it exactly 2 years ago today.Plates and bumpers are back on her now.
      well just the rear plate, no need for the front one to be on, i keep it in my glove box.

      Here is a solution, learn how to work on your own car. And you are paranoid. Its just a stock Golf, get over it boss.

      its not a stock golf, i am paranoid, with good reason to be, and i do work on my car, but im not a tech, and its best to leave some jobs to people who are trained to do it.thanks for the advice.

      I love the green taillights...reminds me of what not to do. Put another quarter in the "NO" jar

      Also, you are going OEM right? Where is your hatch badge and your wiper? Not OEM to me bud. You should actually make this a build thread and post some pics of that manifold. That seems to be the only build here.

      i think my car is one of the cleanest original paint mk3 gti's left, but i dont think i am better than anyone else because of it.I also dont believe my **** to be leaps and bounds above anyone elses's car, i am just proud of my mk3.
