After 12 years of buying Honda/Acura, I bought my first VW. I never thought much about VW, but since the quality of Honda/Acura has been slowing going south I was forced to look elsewhere. I was really surprised how nice of a ride and how much fun it was to drive with the manual transmission. After 2 weeks of ownership I can say I made the correct decision. My planned mods will be simple. Yesterday I put in the wood trim kit. I want to put in a real leather steering wheel (not just a cheap cover). I also want to lower slightly (just enough to make it look better and get rid of the slightly "floaty" feeling over some bumpy roads, but I want to try to keep the ride quality nice). I like the crome around the windows but not though the middle of the doors. Would like to make it body color. If anyone has any suggestions for this B5.5 newb, I am all ears.
