Welcome to KC and

You've done some nice mods and have some awesome ones in the mail.

I have seen you...

Hi - Great looking car!

I too live in Brookside and have seen you several times on my way to work.

I just picked up my new 2004 GLS 5spd Thurs night.

I am very curious about your Brullen exhaust - quiet variety. I have always liked my previous exhaust upgrades but have always been disapointed in the sound level. I want it to flow freer but I want it to be as close to the stock sound level as possible - the best I have heard recently that describes what I want is the stock R32 exhaust - good grumble w/o being too overboard.

I would really like to hear your's sometime if possible.

Thanks all!
Finally signed a purchase agreement on a house. Should be moving down the road(still on 63rd :lol: ) to Prairie Village in October :thumbup:
Two-car attached garage in the winter :thumbup: :thumbup:
Flat driveway and no sidewalks means no shoveling required for the first time in my life :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Glen, I like your wheels! Nothin' like 15 lb 17" wheels at a reasonable price. I'd put them on my car, but styling-wise I don't think I could get away with all-black, and the spoke pattern is too busy to use the silver version. But they look great on your car!

Good Work! :bow: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks, it was the light weight and cheap price that attracted me to them. They have turned out to be very durable also. In 2 years, I have zero scratches or any problems with these wheels. Two of the tires(Yokohama ES100's) are about gone, which means I got about 20-25k out of them with agressive alignment specs.

I will get a set of more agressive tires next summer in my quest to be a track monster like you :thumbup:

Not sure about the Northland, but there are quite a few KCB5 lurkers on the board,
and a few more active enthusiasts.

Watch the Events page, I always post up any local VW-Audi events. I am still hoping to have some kind of KCB5 GTG, like an install day, or show and shine. Something relaxed and car-centered.
