      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.
      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

      oh, and if you could read, i stated my bumper was slightly off track, cause it wasnt even bolted on, i just wanted to see where my exhaust fit before i cut the pipe...the bumpers fit perfect as they should

      my daily junker mk2 is probably cleaner than what you drive

      If you went around insisting to everyone that the '93 Fox was the pinnacle of modern car design and that everyone who owned a different VW was really just jealous that they didn't have a Fox, you would be mocked as well. His build thread simply provides a convenient centralized location for the mocking, so that it doesn't clutter up the other threads he posts in.

      Search up his posts in The Car Lounge if you need more background.

      I doubt it. Camaro has won awards, Scirocco has a PVW shoot lined up. And My family and I have a body shop that's built multiple magazine featured vehicles. Try again.

      I read everything you posted before, and everything I stated still stands. Your car would do well in a VW show's "stock" class, not a concourse show as you claimed. And you did claim it, then backed off that claim when ridiculed. Btw, your mechanic was just stroking your ego in order to ensure your continued patronage.

      My point stands, why sell all these parts rather than hold onto them. Seems short-sighted at best.

      Where are pics of this manifold you bought? People have wanted to see them for over a month, still nothing. Seems like it might not really be yours, hmmm?





      (S8 pic is from the PO, but it hasn't changed much in my month of ownership)

      Man, I enjoy your enthusiasm for MK3's and I don't have any issues with you, but give it a rest. It's one thing if you are showing us the mods you have done to your car. But realistically every other post you have is telling everyone how clean you car is and why it should be on display by VWoA.

      We see the car and it looks like anyone else's car that they "built". Its sequoia green, just about as common as black. I could throw a rock and hit a sequoia green mk3.

      Can't say I like the black badge. I'd rather see a mint chrome one on there. That's just me. I feel it adds to the clean look of a car.
