Newbie to this site but not to VW's. Well within that last couple of years went from 0 VW's to that all I or my kids own. LOL.

First purchase was my 2015 Passat:

Before Mods:



What it looks like now:



Kids car - MK5 Jetta - Sold


My son's 2010 Golf 2.5L:



My daughters 2016 GLI:



Our newest addition father/son project 1991 Corrado G60:



Picture was when it was purchased by previous owner in 2001, was put away under a big pin tree for the last 4 years, engine knocks but the body is solid only tiny surface rust in areas. Engine been pulled out of it and waiting for tear down, have a brand new AEB block with the crankshaft and intermittent shaft installed, need a AEG head gasket to fit the 8V hard onto the AEB block and AEB oil filter bracket, rods and pistons will fit this block.

Engine vomit:

Does that vent on the 2.5l spill oil everywhere or does it keep cleanish?

It does spill oil but not in large quantities and it's just around the filter area,  a simple wipe every now and then keep all clean  :thumbup:

Need to fix the pics in the above post when I get home tonight! FIXED  :thumbup:

Hey everyone bit of an update, I took the buy back from VW for the Passat, brought it back to stock and sold off parts.Was looking at Audi TTRS to replace it but by the time the buy took place I'd missed out on two of them and what was left to choose from was to pricey for the mileage on them. So last summer bought a buddy for the Corrado, 1998 GTI VR6 originally start it's life your wait, was sold to two other guys in Quebec and where I purchased the car. It was amazingly in good shape with only to rust concerns one under the driver side mirror the other is three small bubble out on passenger door.
Before:


Traded the Bentleys for these 3-Piece Mille Miglia MM300 17x8 and 8.5, 5x100 - 5x112 adapters from a big VW/Audi enthusiast in Ottawa
After:




Still picking away at it to get it to were I want it. Bought MSD coil pack/bracket and some Techtronic cams, got the BFI chip re-flashed for with cam files and MK4 head gasket. That will be going in this summer, also continue the Corrado resort this spring.

The MK3 will and up being my winter car since Santa came early this year on Dec. 23th 2017 bought this Black  2012 TTRS, which was my preferred color with 24,000km. One owner, never winter driven, garage stored beauty. Car is mint no dent, scratches, or chip. Only drawback is the dealer in Moncton, NB. Car was listed as base model but found out it has exhaust/tech packages. Flew to Moncton and had and 1,100kms test drive home LOL.





Gave her a bath after the journey home:



Had 12mm spacers when I ran the OEM Bristols on the bagged 2015 Passat, installed them on the TTRS today fitment is not bad.

Thanks was pretty stoked when I found this its been one year searching for the right one. Brought it to detailer to get Opticoat Pro applied, Very impressed with the depth of the shine and pictures don't do it justice.

Start looking at Iroz Motorsports. He'll be able to treat your TTRS right.
