Hey guys, I've been around for a while so I thought I'd just make one of these threads to let you know who I am.

The first vw I owned was a 2000 jetta 2.0 manual, and like the saying goes, it was 2 slow. It looked great though, I bought it fully modded but I just needed to move on.

18" Artec Wheeles
Projektzwo exhaust
30% tint
momo shifter
pioneer sound system
GLI tailights
Rtec Cool air intake
Projektzwo Front & Back Bumper & Side skirts
Aftermarket breaks (don't know the brand)
Koni Suspension\shocks
Projektzwo grill

I knew I liked passats so when I found a V6 5spd for 2k I jumped on it.

I of course couldn't leave it how it was. I actually don't have a lot of pictures but here's the mod list:

Full black leather interior (replaced tan cloth)
Tan leather door cards (replaced tan cloth)
Lowering springs
Wheels painted black
40% window tint all around
Black tinted projector headlights
smoked side markers
badgeless grille
Zender front lip

Recently I wrecked that car. Its really sad because it was just starting to finally come along. In looking for my next passat I was dead set on getting into a 1.8T. The V6 was fun and I really enjoyed having the power there as soon as I hit the gas, but it was time for a big turbo.

I was planning on building one but then I found this:

I think most of you know the car, it's original owner was on pw a bit, so you've probably seen it on here at least.

I flew out to California (From Charlotte), bought it, and drove it back. It was a great road trip and the car is amazing.

The car needs some work. It currently has no rear bumper and two different kinds of wheels on the car. Along with a few other things that can be fixed easily. I'll also be doing a lot of things to make it my own.

Anywho I just thought I'd introduce myself. I've enjoyed posting a few things and learning from you guys.

Thanks for reading and have a good one.
