Ok well i just thought id post a little progress thread of my car.
So i bought here in the beginning of october 2011 with a little under 226000km.
Its a GLS with 5 speed manual trans. The owner seemed to take very good care of the engine, but not the rest(body/interior) and there were some signs of rust.
some of the future plans:
-Fix front rocker panel rust(not covered under vw warranty anymore ;( )
-get rid of summer steelies and get some mags (16/17inch)
-Replace passenger fender(rusted)
-trunk handle shave
-satin black door handles/rubstrips
-possibly leather interior upgrade?
Here are some pictures from the day i first got her:
Washed her asap (polished the headlights a few weeks later, they looked like new)
