I spent most of my day today scrubbing my interior.. leather interior... with.... awesome. I tried different things here and there and it worked the best. Before anyone tells me I'm nuts, it was either going to come clean or be put in the dump. LKQ in the town over has a MINT condition black leather interior. Mine is beige (which I'm not particularly fond of) So now instead of having to replace a whole interior I just have to replace the driver's seat. I told woodardhsd and another person that I'd not seen an interior as disgusting as mine even in the junkyard. I've seen pics online of interiors that gross but they were by the types of people who want the outside gleaming and don't care about the inside. For right now I'll get a seat cover for the driver's seat. There's one already on it but it's disgusting like the rest of the seats were. The person that owned this car was a real (insert foul language here) pig and complete moron. I've waited 45 years to own a awd stick turbocharged car. Anyone who'd let a car get this freaking nasty and maintain it this poorly doesn't need it. Which is the exact reason I now have it. Anyway back to the seats, after I collect enough money and find one I'll replace the driver's seat. Oh and I band-aided my flex pipe with pipe clamps and soda cans just until I get to it (yes it worked lol I took pics) because I can't tolerate it sounding like speed racers giant fart can muffler/muffler delete. More power to the people who like that stuff and if you're one of them or any one reads this and they are, no offense. To each their own right? but I like either straight stock or a very lightly tuned car. Or if highly tuned still looks factory like a sleeper. If I had plenty of money I'd put the bbs looking cross spoke type wheels on mine from the W8. I think those wheels are the beesknees on any VW. My timing kit is now on its way too and when I go to do it I'm just going to take the entire front end off. Do you think it's easier to remove the front end or work on the timing in that tight space? I have pretty large hands and am clumsy which is why I want to remove it. Here's some random pics of nasty interior and stuff messed up or being worked on, oh and of my soda can fart can delete flex pipe band aid. I'm putting a clamp in the middle tomorrow. It was getting dark and I had to fix me some food. It's 3 cans wrapped over one another. I find it hilarious.We bought our youngest son's Passat with 147K on it 6 years ago and he has about 250K on it now. Runs great and will easily go over 300K in about 2 years or so at his current pace. I am at 184K, but I doubt it will see 200K as I only drive it once a week now. I expect to keep it another 4 years, but might keep it much longer if I can fix up the interior.
