Congrats, Alex!

I was 17 and just blew up the tranny on my Nissan. The 8v motor in my Mk2 GTI was getting ready to go!!!
So i sold off all my cars, and started to look for a truck or an suv. When I got curious at the dealer and asked if they had anything in a 5 speed, the salesman told me they just got a VW in on a trade. I asked him to show me the car. When he showed me the Passat. I thought to my self, "What the heck is a 17 year old gonna do with a Passat?" The salesman told me it was a 5 speed. (ok, cool, its a 5 speed, maybe I'll take it out for a ride.) Then he told me it was a turbo!! Ok, ok, now he has my attention! I took it out for a ride and I knew I wanted this car!! Two days later, it was in my driveway!!







Just like any project car starts, I told all my friends: "The car is gonna stay stock." Then about 2 weeks later, I saw a black modded b5.5 Passat rolling around town. That was the end of this car is staying stock!! I soon met the owner of the black passat and started to learn what parts and sites were out there for these cars, Passatworld being of them, and its the only site I've stuck with.







I soon started to mod my car: rims, exhaust, a chip. After being on Passatworld and seeing all the awesome, modded cars, I knew I had to keep up and do something big. Soon came a votex kit and a big turbo kit. And then, bigger and better rims!!! Now almost three years later, I'm left with a huge mod list and this!!!
