Default How Would You Celebrate.

Tomorrow will be 8 years and [only] 99,000 miles since purchasing a 2000 Golf for way too much money. How would you celebrate such a monumental event.

Heavy drinking and lots of anchovy pizza.

My car experience, I'd knock on wood and rub my rabbit.<!-)
For the car you might refresh the fuel injectors. I like your level of mods, pretty much the same as my old '99, was pleasantly surprised how nice the RC-2 worked.

Really? Are you on the other side of the frost line? I find that the older I get, the more the Old Pervo Factor just seems to kick in.

On A practical note, the body work on the TDI is pretty straight and I wouldn't want to have to explain to my wife why there is guard rail rash on the side of my car.

Not on the side of the frost line. Just older, wiser, classier.

Hey It's all good then. And you didn't use the line "Get Off My Lawn". Double points. I guess I'm the other side of the coin. To lazy to make the scenario happen. Oh and don't forget that life is a lot easier when you don't care what people think.

I'd probably go with a nice wash and wax for an occasion like that. The car of course!
