      We don't like you already but we like your B12. We particularly like the 4-sided clock post on the roof... very unique. Do you normally drive around town like that???

      Welcome to the Vortex... just stay away from the CarLounge and Golf IV forums and you and yours will be safe.

      Any pics of the stereo/sub set up? I'm guessing your neighborhood doesn't have speed bumps like mine. Sweet Bug!

      The only way I could have a clock on my roof like the one in the photo is if it is easily
      removable? My garage door opeining is a 'tad' too low to handle it during entry and exiting.
      It should stop others from pulling up to the car, and have me lower my radio music, to tell
      them what time it is, which is a plus.

      Nice!

      It always amazes me the difference wheel spacers make. Just pushing the wheels out a little bit makes a dramatic difference in the look of the car.

      really curious about the fitting of the BSH intake... I assume the GTI one is not going to fit, or what are you planning to install?

      I love your car, great job!
      Any plans on getting the side markers blacked out?
      My wife has a Turbo Beetle on order and it's one of the first mods I'm planning to do.

      Looks good.

      Also what is a Stage III tune? There should only be I, and II with a downpipe for the stock turbo.

      Wow, this car looks great lowered. All the stickers and "Euro plates" aren't really to my taste, but whatever.
