Hey all. I am the proud new owner of a 99 GLS V6 with tiptronic. I am very excited as it is the nicest car i have ever owned (last one was a 1990 plymouth sundance) but i was curious what some opionions might be for a new mods to start off with. Thanks in advance

How many miles?
Have you done the Waterpump/TB/tensioner, etc if you're over 60k?
How about ATF at 60k? Brake flush every 2 years, coolant every 2-4 years?
Welcome to passat ownership :D.
Once you get that monster out of the way, I'd suggest suspension 1st.
Then you need to decide if a PES supercharger (extra ~100hp for $3-5k) is right for you (compression tests, finances).
If it is, save up for that.
If it isn't, GIAC chip and some lightened pulleys.
A good, first mod? Troopster's aspherical mirrors (see the market place). they won't make anything faster, but will keep you from running into crap.

$8900 sounds like a good price.
Definitly make sure you do the maintence (some isn't the book) and teh car will last for a very long time.
Slack of on maintence and you'll have an expensive heart ache.
