I got one too!

But mine is a '98 and gets better mileage than you will.   :finger:  :kicknuts:  :biggrin:

How many miles?  How much?

yeah I looked at the older ones too but for a number of reasons this made more sense.

Seems like a good deal.  Be careful with the auto.  Haven't heard good things about them.  And don't forget to join http://forums.tdiclub.com/

actually Timmy displayed some Kung Fu Ninja Yoga Pilates skills at HPT in April.  You might have missed it though as he was camoflauged as an ass-packer. :ass: :biggrin:

Nice!

You got and PD mods planned?  Need tires or anything?

Would like to chip mine for a few extra MPG.  But it would take a long time to get a return as it does so well as it is.  No records with mine, but it came through two enthusiasts.  Will probably have the timing belt done next year by a TDI guru in Madison.

tires are brand new (<500 miles)

no mods right off the bat, I will eventually.  as much as I drive a chip would pay for itself pretty quickly I would think (I drive approx 4000-5000 per month)

I need to keep the budget tight with racing and buying the NSX... but I'll keep this car for a LOOOOOOOOOONG time (well alot of miles anyway)

Holy beans!  She's gonna be shot in a year...LOL! 

You're only gonna save $250 a month in fuel costs?  What were you replacing, Timmah?

And VW means , right?
