      Love the dubs you've built. For some reason, I dearly love the Passat wagon.

      HAHA I remember when I first stumbled onto the tex' back in 2000 I would onyl go to the MKII forum. Then one day I discovered the car Lounge by mistake and was addicted until now. I remember there was a few more technical people on here back in the day.

      Guess I'm aloser too definitely have learned alot from the Car Lounge

      I'm curious how you got banned after 400 posts and 8 years, and then built up 5,000, lol.

      I've never been banned... yay me? I'm coming up on 10 years too

      Back then, I was just posting in the Van forum. Two years ago, new to TCL, I posted a link to chat roulette as a joke, and that's how I became McBanagon.

      I also joined in 2001, joined when I had bought my '02 MKIV new back then. I changed screen names after I lost my computer and a bunch of files. Crazy how many cars I've had since then though. All I remember from back then was Jetta lumber, Pelko and the Epic candylane thread.

      My 10 years will be Thursday. I've had 2 GTIs that entire time. It's crazy how much time I've wasted here but I've saved at least double that from all the tips and advice, not to mention the money I've made selling parts.
