      Finally washed the car inside and out, and figuring out what all I want to do on this thing.

      Result; the need of $10k...sigh.

      So, put the freon back in that I never added after the engine swap as it is 90 degrees right now.

      Next, search for wheels and tires......

      Brakes! Anyone know how to clean these calipers up nicely and does anyone know why my rotors look scratched?? Sticky pads??

      Wanted to change up the front a bit. I know its a rattle can jobby, but I wanted to see what it would look like. I think it came out nice and will get it properly painted when I get back from SoWo

      Just need my votex lip now and the front is for the most part completed.

      Yeah I'd feel better if I totaled it because I was driving like a douche. Instead it got taken out by hail.

      Apparently the camera wanted to focus on the paint so they had to manual focus to get any detail from the dents.

      Sorry to hear about the hail damage man...it's a terrible feeling. I had to pay a little over 1k out of pocket last year for hail damage that occurred while the car was sitting outside a performance shop.

      It's pretty extensive. Hood, roof, fenders, couple of dings in the door.

      My wife told me I went a little crazy trying to match the body to the golf ball shift knob.

      Well, last night i tried to get around to installing my K-Sports.

      Took me 2 hours just to get the rear perches from being ceased. Couldnt get the collars on the Shocks and struts to budge.

      Also, found out that my passenger side rear inner tire is completely worn out in less that 5k. Took me 3 hours to source one out from a local shop. Friday i am going to get that fixed up.

      Taking the struts to the shop today so they can fix this collars up, attempting install again on Friday.

      Alignment on Tuesday

      Leave for SoWo Tuesday night.....

      Somwhere in between all this madness I gotta pack, do an oil change and detail the chariot.

      My wife wanted a Tiguan but after looking at them in person we decided to get a 2011 jetta se instead. Tig seemed like a low line lifted golf to me the interior including the trunk is the size of a four door rabbit to small for what it is. The options for a base tig has less than my base rabbit for a added price of what 8k? just for the 2.t no thanks. If we could of afforded it than we probably would of gone with what you chose.

      What did I do to my 2.5 today?

      Yesterday wanted to get my rear tires flipped but town fair tire refused to do the work even though they originally mounted them a year ago. "we dont do euro streched tires" my butt its .5 of a inch come on! So this weekend I got to pull them off before I ruin the tires even more and find someone else to do the work and willing to bend the rules a little bit.

      May have figured out my cel issue knock on wood if not than Im at a loss on what to try next.

      I actually chose this one because its LOADED! it was just exactly what we needed small easily driven all Wheel drive turbo...its got every single option besides hid's...but everything else like the roof rails panoramic power roof etc.really drives beautifully. I like the tiguan a lot! We don't need a full size SUV, just something she can drive and I can play with a bit.already have plans for it
      She is a pretty cool wife considering she's open to modifying it just not going low lol

      Nice pickup! My gf opted for an X3 instead of a Tiguan, but I've also gotten her excited about the few little cosmetic mods we've done. She thought about springs and wheels/tires, but is not ready to drop $$ on it like we are

      Exactly where she stands...I've just got to take it out one day and work on it without her looking at the bank account.then it'll be ok.
