      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.

      That's awesome we're twinsies!!! I bought my mk2 Jetta(the first one at the top) in 1999 it was my first watercooled after dozens of aircooled VWs!!

      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.
