      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.
      will do

      Not to burst your bubble and get "too" technical, but there are actually some MK3 GTIs out there that have less than a few hundred miles on them...a LOT of them. So with 50 whatever thousand miles on yours, it's not one of the cleanest...sorry

      Sorry, but no.

      Concourse implies that it is factory original, or restored to factory correct. Simple and obvious deviations like the exhaust tip would ruin this cars chance at any concourse showing. Let alone, the green tail lights.

      It's a Golf, not an exotic fer christ's sakes. And I can't say I've heard of a "Mass-market moderately sporty German econo-hatchback Concours D'Elegance," unless that's what you see your dubber festivals as being.

      LMFAO!!

      That car will NEVER compete in a concours. Who the hell has a concours event for MK3 VW's?

      Who the fcuk cares that your tech is a GT3 RS collector and that he has two? What does that have to do with your car? LOL. BRAG BRAG BRAG?

      You saying what you said in your reply reminds me of a scene from National Lampoons Vacation when Uncle Eddies daughter and Clarks daughter were on the see-saw:

      Cousin Eddies Daughter: "I'm going steady and I french kiss"
      Clarks Daughter: "Well everybodys doing it"
      Cousin Eddies Daughter: "Well my daddy says I'm the best at it!"

      p.s. SUP BARRY!!!!

      I figured I would contribute to your build thread with my build thread. This was an extensive build and I, just like you, went for OEM+, but added Euro. Just thought it was the right thing to do and it took months and months of hard work. It's not concours quality like yours...actually its a piece of sheet, but I love it and am very "enthusiastic" about it!! See the before and after!!

      Before:


      After:


      See the many differences?

      i believe jealousy is something this car does generate.EVERYONE wants a mint mk3 gti vr6, and finding examples like mine is becoming quite the chore.I dont take the attacks personally, i mean everyone is a tough guy behind the keyboard......and your advice is something 90 percent of vortex users need to use, and comprehend.

      Now, if you had a new Rocco, sure or something really rare. This...is not rare. It's the fact that you have a "build thread" on this car and there isn't much building. Just trying to get attention that nobody really cares about.

Its awesome the amount of haters that pop in a thread and talk ****...See em at a show and they are snapping pics and talking about how nice it is blah blah blah..It happens all over but the vw guys seem to be a little worse about it then others.

      There are a lot of them out there. I'm not an aformentioned "hater". I just think this thread is useless, as I'm sure a lot of other people do. I think a lot of us know what a real build thread is. This dude posts up useless threads to get his post count going. Look at his history

      I love it!! A useless post on a forum? No way No reason to beat a dead horse about it... you don't agree with what he posts...Simple solution, Don't post. You cant have your click back but you can keep from looking like an ******* or even pissing people off. It is a risk the OP took posting his car but hes sharing what hes in to and doing to his car just like the guy going overboard and dumping 1000's and 1000's of dollars on his $500 car but thats what forums are. Rather then hate on it for whatever reason either click the back button on your browser or make a positive comment about something he has done you like. "clean car", "looks like lots of hard work" "Looks like you have OCD"....People wonder why the scene has died...Cause its not like people support modding cars anymore that need to be internet tough guys and talk tons of crap on a forum when its uncalled for.

      Id love to see This car at a show and stand back and watch people look at it...I bet not one person said one ****ty thing to the owner. Just to be clear here im not just posting this cause im fiends with the OP im posting this because Its part of the reason im throwing in the towel again on the vw scene. Its NOTHING like it used to be. People are insane now. Prices, Respect, whatever...Its a new world and one i rather not be a part of...Once the gti goes then i'm out for good.

      Well thanks DAD and Captain Obvious. A lot of people have been out of the scene. Have you just realized this, or do you just want to add to the pity part? I and everybody else on here can do or say anything they want. So if you want to be Ft. Toughton and E-Thug, that's cool. That's what YOU are doing, not me. I'm not telling anybody what to and what not to do; that's what you are doing. It was totally called for to tell Mr. post count lord what honest thoughts are. I would have no problem telling him or you the same in person as I do on here. So go hump your buddy for a job well done because you both look like asses now.

      the building is going on, just like to leave some surprises for show season.I think your redic for coming at my buddy, and starting crap in MY thread.I hope you feel better now, and do us all a favor and LEAVE$.And i know you would rather have a mk3 gti vr6 over that silly jetta.you see how that works...
      and your opinions about my car are indeed ,YOUR ,opinions, and i disagree with them.Find me another sequoia green mk3 gti vr6, in my shape, i bet you would have to look for years, so while it wasnt a low production car, it is indeed rare THESE days to find a as NEW example.
      new rocco, give me a break, my mk3 looks ten fold better.why is everyone getting into mk3 gti's again, hmmmm.Cant wait to see you come back at me, heres hoping you dont, and i can keep my thread to those who are interested.

"clean car", "looks like lots of hard work" "Looks like you have OCD"....People wonder why the scene has died...Cause its not like people support modding cars anymore that need to be internet tough guys and talk tons of crap on a forum when its uncalled for.

      Id love to see This car at a show and stand back and watch people look at it...I bet not one person said one ****ty thing to the owner. Just to be clear here im not just posting this cause im fiends with the OP im posting this because Its part of the reason im throwing in the towel again on the vw scene. Its NOTHING like it used to be. People are insane now. Prices, Respect, whatever...Its a new world and one i rather not be a part of...Once the gti goes then i'm out for good.
      its unfortunate that one of the greats, one of the pioneers in denver vw tuning, is getting out.This guy would bend over backwards to help anyone out, and all you do is talk **** about him.It will be a sad day when you leave SIR.
      btw, i have one more box to look through for that pieces you need.

I'm not telling anybody what to and what not to do; that's what you are doing. It was totally called for to tell Mr. post count lord what honest thoughts are. I would have no problem telling him or you the same in person as I do on here. So go hump your buddy for a job well done because you both look like asses now.

      You told me. Posting up talking **** about this guys car is much different then saying it in person. While saying how you would have no issue talking **** to this guy in person we both know it wouldn't happen. Even thinking it i bet you can put your self in that position in your head and i bet you can picture the owner standing up for himself and you shutting him down . Honestly it wouldn't happen. lets be real here...90% of the people on here will not say a ****ing thing in person for one reason or another.

      I spoke my peace and really dont have anything else to say. Beat the dead horse talk all kinds of **** about Joey's car. If he does by some strange chance brings this to a show I would love to be there to hear how much **** talking is not going to happen.

      Hi my name is Russell and I have done a good job of introducing myself. I am an ******* and not just on the forum. Sorry i made Joey look like one cause hes really not.

      It will never be at a car show, so that's settled.

      Sorry you feel that way. VWs are too hard, enjoy the Japanese vehicles my friend.
      Robin, I have read the posts..I have read it in all the threads. Hes all about his car, You and i both know Joey is way past OCD about his cars. Him posting up for a little vortex ego stroking in no different then a build thread or a look what i did post maybe it goes a little farther cause hes not doing dash swaps and air ride and people think thats the norm now, who knows.

      We all know it wont be at a show but we know that's not what hes after. Its his car he does with it what he wants. Id love to see him bring it out tho.

      VW's are not hard..Honestly after all the fab work going in to a crawler i look back at how easy it is compared. Id still be screwing with the VW's if the people weren't so stupid. They don't care who they piss off. Its almost like they thrive off the drama rather then helping to grow the community. You and i both know how 2 faced the vw kids are now days...A few were back in the day. It is what it is tho im just moving on. Not worth the headache.

      The lexus my girls driving to work now and i doubt i will mod this one. The truck will see more mods and lots more trail time. I can respect anyone modding and supporting people that mod or restore no matter what it is. If the Owner does his own work and its quality i have even more respect. Fab work is not easy.


      I dont have much more to say here...I'm duckin out. I am sure that this will go on and on and on and the out come will be a locked thread or someone being banned and rejoining under another name....either way nothing positive.

      and your opinions about my car are indeed ,YOUR ,opinions, and i disagree with them.Find me another sequoia green mk3 gti vr6, in my shape, i bet you would have to look for years, so while it wasnt a low production car, it is indeed rare THESE days to find a as NEW example.
      new rocco, give me a break, my mk3 looks ten fold better.why is everyone getting into mk3 gti's again, hmmmm.Cant wait to see you come back at me, heres hoping you dont, and i can keep my thread to those who are interested.
      Look through your thread...NOBODY IS REALLY INTERESTED. And my Jetta is a VR, a mildly built one actually, but I don't sit here and brag about it all day long like you do. Get your stories straight chronie, your "boy" came at me...learn to read the order of your posts. Set up a poll and see if people would rather have a clean MK3GTi with 60k miles or a new Rocco, and I mean new, new over in Europe Rocco, what would they choose? You, sir, are an idiot and I would love to tell you this to your face as well.

      wait, new roccos are uglier than mk3s, and everybody is buying up nearly 20 year old GTIs again?

      ****, I am so far removed from the dubber scene that it's started moving backwards.

      Seriously dude, you drive a volkswagen golf. Everybody else with one accepts it for what it is. Stop trying to make your car seem like epitome of the ****, it's not. I can show you a 20k mile 1988 CRX Si, and that car is sought after.

      Doesn't make it a ****ing diamond in the rough worth telling everybody how clean it is, and how much better looking, or how well maintained it is. It's just a low mileage example of an older car that has some nostalgia points.

      Go buy some more CDs so you can eventually afford something nicer than a 15 year old golf.

      Im not a PM person. Just not my thing...Not tryin to be "joe cool" Im not "butthurt for my friend..Im honestly just posting up cause it is so funny to me when everyone talks **** on here but in person they dont say anything... Its just like the PM...Not a public disagreement lets make it private so nobody looks like they have less internet credit.

      I was done posting but thought id just chime in here and point out you guys are posting on and on and on about this guy and his bragging but he hasn't posted.

      Ok I'm done with this part of the thread and if i comment it will be about the OP's mk3.

      yes, the new rocco is ugly, and is nothing to look at over a clean mk3 gti.I love my 15 year old golf, .It is the best vw platform,and there is a lot of interest in them.I can afford quite a few high end cars, but i prefer to spend my money on my mk3's.Mk3 gti's, and low mile crx's, are sought after cars from a niche market, i could care less about any honda, let alone a crx, but i am sure there are people out there who enjoy them.mk3's are becoming a cult car, and low mileage, minty examples are indeed sought after, i dont have to sell the idea, vortex already has.

      OP's car can win a concours event

      green taillights
      exhaust
      coilovers
      aftermarket wheels
      rusty seat hinges
      questionable bumper fitment
      decals/inspection stickers/paper labels that are faded and cracked
      ugly redtop battery
      deleted wiper
      no rear badge
      the stone chips from 50k+ miles driving

      Yeah, that's a real gem.

      OP, instead of replacing everything that didn't need replacing and then selling your parts, wouldn't it have been smarter to leave the original parts in place and stockpile replacements? Since mk3 parts are so "rare" now, imagine in ten years when something actually breaks You won't have a replacement part, or the original

      love the hate, look at my front, there are no stone chips, cause car had a clear bra on it for 12 years, i removed it.rear badge is install,ed now, and i have every emission sticker new in envelope that i wont use now.keep in mind the pics are its journey along the way.The car looks new, and that is super rare these days to find in a mk3.tails,coils,wiper,etc are all super easy to reverse if need be.And in terms of needing parts, i have 3 other mk3's to pick from, and there clean as well, just not showroom clean like my sequoia.Again, dont get this story twisted, i understand what concourse comp's look at, i stated that my tech is super finicky,and he said its CLEAN and MINT enough to compete if it was returned to stock.You also have to remember this car came from seattle, where you dont get stone chips anyways, cause they dont gravel up there roads in winter, i lived there and its a real safe enviroment for cars, especially cars that were bought new, and stored in a heated warehouse for 8 months of the year.Hate all you want, i know what i have, and thats all that matters
