      337 GTI

      thanks guys, you probably have seen it either on the forums or on LI. Its a bagged 337 roof painted black, black mirrors, boser hood. I don't have any pictures yet, of course the day I go to get the car is the only day it decides to pour I plan on spending all day tomorrow cleaning her up and throwing down some fresh wax. Also looking into making the compressor and tank a little nicer on the eyes...if anyone has any cool ideas I could do with this or have pics of their set ups lets see what ya got!

      edit: also the airbag light is on, will the vag com be able to read an airbag code? or do I really have to go to a dealership?

      is that the one that was on craigslist in Islip?

      airbag light could be on because it has the r32 steering wheel. vagcom can clear the code, if it is wired up properly, the light will go away once cleared

      I have a vagcom and i'll probably be there tomorrow. My name's Evan.

      I also have a spare 337 wheel, I'd trade it + cash for your R32 wheel if interested

      I have a vagcom and I'm just a couple of minutes away in Huntington if you need a hand. Someone in EEM has a Westwood fender roller that they rent out. I used it about a year ago.
