    I purchased a 30v a few months back, 99 white with 120k. The guy thought he blew the engine, so he sold me the whole car with 17' ROH rims for $300. I open the engine and find no bent valves, nothing is wrong other than a missing tensioner in the head, he must of just messed up the timing. So I...

    This might sound stupid to some, but I'd like your honest (sans sarcasm) opinions on whether or not I should trade my 2005 GL sedan (1.8t, 5spd) for a 2005 GL variant (1.8t, 5spd)? Factors I've been weighing : - My car payment is currently $215 and would potentially increase to $250-$270 -...

    Ok...I have to be honest. I've owned 4 B5's before and just pick up another B5.5 just last month and they have all been 1.8T's. The reason I'm asking is because on my last b5 wagon, i picked up a set of 5.5 H&R springs that fit just fine on my car with no fitment issues nor ride discomfort...
