      Dang good call, i would also like to see that.

      Think you are going stock, or maybe play on the wild side with some Bosch Icon's, since its a build thread after all?

      Unbelievable that you'd mention a 997tt in this thread.

      The mkIII golf is by far a superior performing and aesthetically pleasing car.

      Wow, that rear body panel is something fresh.
      In fact, the only time i've seen one that was actually body color without looking ancient were the ones that were painted at the shop.

      Did you detail that part too? You know, the one that's hidden under where a bumper cover normally sits?

      I'll give you that it's a clean MKIII, but damn. Do something to it, it's not a concourse worthy car. It's a ****ing 90s VW. Boost the bitch and have a quick, and clean VW.

      i like women just fine, my wife takes good care of me...I log on to this sight to look at mk3's, not video's of women.I hope you get to experience a woman in the flesh, instead of you getting your rocks off to internet porn

      i know he was being sarcastic about the 997, but i agree with his sarcasm...
