    Been doing lots of research on modding my family-car Passat since I got one this past summer(at a killer deal, by the way). Making plans and getting the pieces now to build my own 3" mandrel bent exhaust and planning to lower it soon too hopefully. Plus, isn't it awesome all the thought that...
