Well with Keith putting the thought in my head, instead of building my 00' fwd v6 tip Passat into a " sporty racer ", I should pick up the A4 1.8t tiptronic Quatro n turn that into my build. With what I want out of the motor department ( POWER) the awd is a must since I'm fwd & tiptronic. No Quiafe for auto. That sucks. But, for $500 I think I'd be stupid not to turn that into project. The guy with the Audi bought it because he owns same car but banged in his front end. He bought this car for $1000 because of the blown motor n stripped front face off with hood. That's all he needed. Only pain is at the moment he misplaced the title. Using only as parts car he never even signed it to get registered. So if he can't find it things can get fustrating. I'd have to meet up with the previous owner n hopefully get him to sign DMV paperwork for new title n have the new 1 come in my name. This happened with my Cruisers Inc. Sea Devil Cruise. I should know by Wednesday if he found or lost title. But, I don't think I should let it be deal breaker since I'm not planning on putting on road till Summerish. I'd like to go through car head to toe n build new engine instead of just buying used 1 n dropping in. Also would be best time to swap out tip for a manual. Any1 else out there been in this situation? What did u do?
