Picked this up through a friend of a friend yesterday, wasn't specifically looking for one but you can't pass up a car like this. 1996 passat tdi wagon 5 speed 113,xxx miles 1 owner. was told it needs struts and brakes plus obviously a windshield. I briefly drove it up my street today and it seems pretty solid, fired right after sitting for a couple years. First order of business is filter and fluids change. 2nd is installing the complete 97 vr6 leather interior including console and door cards that came with it. 3rd will be addressing the suspension and where I'm not entirely sure what direction I want to go. Eyeing some st coilovers since it needs struts anyways. Also been reading about 5 lug swaps and there bigger brakes and better suspension geometry. But on the other hand tempted to keep it stock, I already have my 2001 "s4" tdi for the fun stuff. Either way this will probably be a slow long term project since it drives and I have other projects with a higher priority. Either way I feel lucky to have it and have been enjoying learning about it.
