Picked up the car in Feb 2011. Had to drive a couple hundred miles to get it but was well worth the drive. Car only had 105K on it. Bone stock except for Injen Intake, Lowering springs & drilled/slotted brakes. Really clean interior. The front left ball joint failed causing the wheel to fall off. Car had been sitting for about 6 months. I originally went to go buy a brand new carbon fiber hatch from him & saw the GSX on jacks. After talking to him he sold me the car with the Hatch for $1100. A deal I could not pass up. I had the parts off my 95 TSI to get it on the road.

How it looked when i got it home

Great job under the hood, did you steam it, or just take your time with a rag?

Just ordered new ball joints & outer tie rods. They are shot. Also got a rear camber kit. So hopefully that will get my suspension straight after an alignment. New rims next then go fast goodies...

Car will be sitting for the next 3 months while I am Deployed. I already have a FP Big 16G & 3.5in FMIC Core sitting at home to install when I get back. I just need to get the final supporting mods for it & will be hooked up shortly after I return.
