Here are some pictures of Horst. He is a 2001.5 1.8t manual.

Mods in order(not many, but with time, my friend, with time)
K&N drop in filter
Llumar 20% tint
Wett Chip
Windshield chip from nasty 1/2 inch rock thrown from a dump-truck going 80

Sirius Satellite Radio mounted in glove box
Fondmetal 17x7.5 Tech 5 with 215/50/17 Hercules Ultra TR tires
TT DV


Early pics:




Now pics:


I also just recently moved the Sirius antenna from the trunk into the rear window, without any problems at all with reception. Since I have a Sirius unit that can be used in the house, I mounted it in my glove box.

The Wett chip is fun. Too much fun. (I will defer all questions to the instructor of the optional safety class which was suggested that I take so my insurance wouldn't be notified and the ticket price wouldn't be as high.) :puke:

By the way, we acquired some more snow today!


And now, with my wife's Beetle:



(I realize the date at the top isn't correct. I had to do some editing of posts.)

Well, after a few hours of hard work, I changed 3 of 4 vacuum lines and replaced my blown DV with a TT DV. It is just like driving it chipped for the first time. Woo Hoo!!

And here is a new pic with my friend's Saab. (Original post has been edited for content, too.)

Wow, long time, no visit to passatworld. I had to do some maintenance and I realized how much I miss this place. I have had some life changing events in the last year that needed some tending to, so I wasn't able to visit the site. In May, my wife and I had a little girl, Mallory Eleanor. She is the best. But she was 3 months early and born with multiple medical problems, the most being renal failure due to multicystic kidneys. She will eventually need a new kidney, but for right now, we are holding our own. She hasn't needed dialysis yet, and hopefully she won't for a long time. I think we are pretty fortunate, though. I am an ICU pharmacist in a very large transplant hospital, and my mom is a nurse practitioner for pediatric urologist. It helps that I know all of the people that will be seeing my daughter. But enough about that...

I finally have some more mods to list. Over the weekend, I had to replace 2 blown CV boots and 2 blown shocks. With that all on the docket, I replaced all 4 corners with H&R OE Sports and Bilstein Sports. It is going in for new shoes and an alignment tomorrow. Then, hopefully, a bath, as it has been pretty messy in these parts as of late.

And then.....pictures. More to come.
