What would you prefer?

Neither the tire is 2 inches bigger than factory. You'll have balloons on it. It might rub and it will lift your car a full inch.

Gave the ol' 4x4 a well deserved wash. It got HAMMERED in the day lot at blackcomb last week. End of the row - every car that went by sandblasted it.

Still loving this little car - might be the first year I keep the winter beater after the ski season.

Looking very nice.  I've almost had my GTI for 2 years.  I was not expecting to still have it and I will probably have it for some time yet.

That car looks really good. Is that the minty clean one everyone was mulling over recently?

no - this isn't eurotrash's car that came back up for sale recently - I think Toby grabbed that one.

I bought this in the fall - it was posted in the CL finds thread. It's not perfect - has some inside gas door surface rust, and a slight crease over a rear fender. If I keep it I'll get that stuff taken care of in the spring.

In a moment of weakness/drunkenness last night a "made and offer" on some ebay FK streetlines and it was accepted. They may make their way onto this car.

This is by no means a BEATER :D  Looks great Brad look forward to seeing wheels and coilovers..

My 98 Jetta.



This car is my first project so I'm starting off lightly and getting used to getting my hands dirty before really digging in.

First Real change I made was swapping out the old blue cloth interior to tan leather. I'm feeling the two tone. Pic is after a thorough steam clean.



Next up is getting my new Mini wheels on her and some coilovers. Just picked these guys up in Seattle for a sweet deal. Pic of Wayne giving them his seal of approval.



More to come soon.

I forgot about Eurotrash's car so this is the CR one then. Looks good. Little damage is nothing.

mini wheels have to be hogged out a little bit - i think they're 56.? ID. some guys used to do it with a dremel but a competent machine shop would be better.

Yeah just 1 mm on these ones I think. Panther Precision Machine said they'd do it for $35 a wheel. Seems like a deal.
