Nothing real special about this one. Just got the necessary work finished (did TB, both CV axles and now springs/shocks in the first 12,000 since I have had it) so now I can begin the fun work :D

Clean and with the new Neuspeed Sport Springs and Bilstein Sport Shocks.

And yes, I know I need new wheels.....

Well done!!! Did you chrome your mirrors and handles yourself?? Was it difficult??

I actually bought the car that way. I think the previous owner put them on... let me see if I can dig up an old email and ask him where he got them.

Cool....nice and clean!! Now that you have her in good running condition....let the mods begin
That was my point in doing all this. No reason to mod a car that isnt in good running condition. I cant wait for the next mod... most likely going to be a chip.

It's been an ongoing process, keeping my car in tip-top shape. I found that the best I could do was take care of the major stuff, and then get to all the little things as/when they needed to be replaced anyway. My modding was sort of weaved in together with the maintenance. Good luck in all your future mods!

@ Imeen, at first I didn't understand your new sig ... Then I was like, "Ohhh ..." Nice concept.

:sleep:

Very nice. It's time to smoke those side markers, though. :rockon:

Im not sure about that one yet, I will reserve judgment until i do the other wheels. I already got all the chrome on the car, no reason to not leave them (gives the po po a few less reasons to mess with me). The only other VisMods that I have planned are a badgeless grill and MAYBE one of those lip spoilers on the rear deck lid (and wheels, of course).

Nice drop ..
Thanks. I was worried how low it would/would not go, came out looking just right. Will look good when I can afford 17's.

I love black on black leather passats, it kind of reminds me of my car when it was stock looking!

Nice car!

I cant believe the ride difference. I love driving this car again... freeways with light traffic are such a good time now :driving:

Thanks. The first time I saw this car I knew I had to have it. I looked so clean... had a few mechanical issues, but I took care of that and a few more things to keep it tip top. Now that it is back to the way it should be, the real fun can begin.:wrench:
