It's rare, like I said I feel self.conscious when I do. But I'm also here till whenever I need to be, 7-8 isn't unusual.

Just because he scanned for virus, does not mean it is virus free. Get yourself a few virus scanners like combofix, Dr.Web LiveCD and bitdefender and start scanning.

Just picked up Das Auto with a brand new set of shoes. Never ceases to amaze me how much of a difference new tires can make. It rides like a 5 series now.

Jet fokkin black anyone?

But for real, I'm having a hard time buying that one. A) unless he dipped the wheel in PlastiDip I don't see how you could get much over spray at all on the tread and B) the dip would peel right off the first time he turns the wheel

But cute nonetheless.

Unless he sprayed the wheel without ANY masking. I would think it would last a little while longer, especially if it is thick and turning at speeds.

Somewhat fishy to me, but kinda funny nonetheless.

Google "United Gray MKV 2-door" that's it.

I haven't taken any photos since I polished it, none of the work I did was photojournalism worthy. The wheels are all smudgy from getting the new tires mounted too.

I'm going to give it a quick bath and throw another coat of sealant on it on Friday. On Saturday we're headed to Hburg for my school's car show, then will probably take a scenic route home or maybe make a detour to Cville or something, so there should be some good photo opportunities.

On a side note this blog is freaking hysterical:

Those fenders.

I can't believe so many of these cars get ruined like that. It'd be one thing if it was an old Lexus, or a Passat, or something that isn't going to go around a corner anyway, but this little car is one of the most fun FWD chassis I've ever driven. Kinda like a 'teg with way more power, or my roomie's ST with way less and slightly better steering feel. Only slightly though. Its "electromechanical" whatever that means.

If for some reason I had sold the E36 to buy this car or if I somehow came into a large sum of money, I'd have gone for the 4-door instead of the 2, and gotten one with the smaller 17" wheels. Kept the stockers for snow tires and thrown something like this on it:



Stage 1 tune, intake, upgraded diverter and gauges, then spend the rest of my budget on a really, really nice set of coils that would lower it a smidge but keep an OEM quality ride.

That would make such a ******* grocery getter.

Just a distant fantasy. With unlimited resources I'd love to throw some parts at it, but I'm just not into VWs (or many other cars for that matter) like I am the E36. Unless my financial future changes dramatically, I'll drive this car stock for a couple years, eventually upgrade to another commuter, and all car fun monies will be spend on Das Banana.
