      lol isn't that true!!!

      every dealer in my area within 75 miles KNOWS my car...

      they all know I've got a turbo on it, they know nothing on the car is oem. and i'm pretty damn sure NO dealer would even want to take my car for a trade in lol

      I'm pretty sure it'd be just offensive if they did offer me anything lol

      I have all of the reciepts from all of my mods, and i'm pretty sure they'd not even touch an 1/8th of the money i've dropped into that thing
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      That would probably hold true if you sold it to anyone though. Unfortunately its just part of modding. As far as i'm concerned i will be keeping my car until it falls apart.

      yeah no doubt i'll be keeping this car til the wheels fall off...

      anyway today... I finally got around to installing the euro rear bulb holders. I was rolling modified oem ones... but now I have the legit euro setup. i ALSO picked up a leak detection pump.

      I've been getting a persistent evap code, so i'm starting with the biggest lump. i've been researching and think i MAY have found a way to delete it though! YAY!!!

      Meeting with HMF today about having front and rear tubular control arms made.

      Also hitting the bank to inquire on a loan to buy my buddies R32 and he takes the CW Rabbit. I'll still be around with my UG if the bank approves it.

      Not exactly what I did to my 2.5, but what we did to my friends 2.5.

      Needed to replace the rad support on Steve's (somewhiteguy on Vortex) Rabbit. Also had some new wheel wells, votex lip and Thunderbunndy sides to install.

      Had to be on the hottest day of the year eh Steve? lol! Good times none the less

      Question for you...
      Running in there without the fender liner, are you sketched out about a rock or some other debris hitting your leak detection pump and screwing up fuel and breather lines? I'd try to fab up something like an old license plate folded up and mounted to protect that stuff.
      It's a pretty expensive little part that could really ruin your day if it went

      Geez, judging by the image size and how it still shows signs of heavy compression, that must be a mighty fine camera you got there.
