Aaron, you now own (IMHO) the best two TDIs. 2 door Golf and Jetta Wagon. I hope you enjoy the wagon as much as I enjoy mine. Congratulations!

well, the Koni Coilovers are now off the wagon.

It now wears Koni FSDs, VR6 Front springs, and Wagon stock rear springs.

it now sits higher than stock, and is more comfortable.

the koni coilovers with 3k miles on them will be for sale soon..

Peter, I wish I was in a position to be able to keep both cars, but with all the kids, and other things going on in life, the Golf has to go.

I don't mind so much because I have a sweet wagon to replace it.

so now to make Knurren more mine. one step at a time.

ya I know, now to teach them how to open and close them properly...

with the eurovan, they have learned how to slide the door open, and with the golf , we usually let them out when we open the door and tilt the seats..

they will need some teaching!

Aaron... I forgot to tell you about the EGR probe being short. lol... yeah temps are off.

I, basically, ran out of time to work on the Car, and give the care it needs. Rather, the Car sit and rot away. I made the tough choice to sell it.

If thats the worst thing I find, I say we are doing pretty well Gero!

Ill get a longer EGT probe eventually. Love the car BTW< just gotta get used to the 17lb Flywheel and the stiffer dogbone (it does have one of those right? I need to list what it is if you remember)

I have come close to stalling it a few times, but so far, it hasnt died on me.. but it def shudders and tells you when you are pushing it.. LoL

Gero, I for one am GLAD you decided to sell it, and that I was online when I was. I know this car wouldnt have lasted long. Very Very happy its now mine to play with.

OMG that looks sooo much like my old Wagon! Even some of the upgrades you did are just like mine (tint, rubstrips, TT pedals, smoked markers, Aero wipers, skid plate, etc, etc). I still regret selling the Wagon, even a year later! Hope you enjoy your beautiful and unique vehicle!

Nice buy Growler! Not to threadjack (ok, just a temporary one...) but what suspension did you have on your Wagon Ed (Ed's TDI)? How did you like it? That is the stance I'm wanting, but i don't want to give up much in ride quality.
