      i've been out of the mk3 scene for a long time, but the "quality" of these cars are not up there. i'm not saying everyone blow all your $$ on show stoppers, but at least represent the MK3's better than this.
      sorry if i offend, but even before reading Tay's comment, i thought the same thing to myself.

      I read your Build thread and it really doesn't look like you know a ****ing thing. Good thing you have lots of money to pay that shop that is building it. That is pretty much how all you old timers roll isn't it? Thank goodness for NGP and 1552 or the East Coast wouldn't have any Show cars in the 90's.

      There really was no show field parking so all cars entering were forced to park in one big area for this event. So I guess many daily drivers were there for display as well as show cars.

      It's very early in the season too. Many of the best cars aren't out yet and I am sure many are still in project mode.

      Dustoff will have many many of the best. Show up and see, lol.

      I'm sure your TT is a lease so stop bragging about it. If it was yours I would hope you were smart enough to sink the money into that over a Cabrio

      I brought my MK3 there. Dont know if the ones who say all the Mk3's were beat, but my paint is 8-10, inside has almost no wear on the leather, no rust, and can eat off the motor + underside. I drive it maybe 5 times a year or less. Maybe they should invest in glasses I guess. Besides, its not how much you can spend, but how you pull it off that counts.

      but my TT lease (i sell Audi's so i go through cars every 2 years, this time it made sense to lease not finance) is allowing me to have a MK3 Cabrio VR6 toy, i'm not sad about that at all. i end up with two bitchin cars instead of 1. still not sad bro

      Well said sir!!!

      I've been lurking around here for some time and I will admit the standards have changed for the worse over the last few years.

      But to each is own. Clean and Tasteful have always been my two main motivators.
