Hey everyone, well I just got my first job at Menards, and start Tomorrow, so that means money in my pocket and some will go to my car and upgrades.
Now i hope this thread doesnt turn into a joke like some of my other threads, when i had little to no idea how anything worked, now i have a little bit more of an idea, and still planning to learn more.
before i start with telling you about my car now, i would like to say thanks for all the help everyone has given me in the past with different things, i really appreciate it, so i would like to say thanks again.
start off with the car.
1996 VW Jetta GLS 2.0 aka "The Turtle"
100,600 miles pretty great for a mk3 jetta ehh?
Got the car as my second car, first one was a 1999 Jetta Wolfsburg that was a lemon too bad the thing was pretty nice too, minus the automatic. The car when I got it, had 95k on it, with one owner! no crashes or anything! just about everything is OEM, so i guess i can make my car how i want it from fresh. now this build isnt gunna be anything insane or anything, i would maybe say somehting less than a budget build, but heck its my first project, and i have time for many more, no taking short cuts, this will be a simple build with not minor or major upgrades just some upgrades here and there. the only upgrade so far is the short ram intake or cold air intake what ever its called, i always hear different names.
Future Plans so far...
raceland or rokkor Coils, kinda leaning more toward rokkors mainly longer warrinty.
glx smoked tails
new seats, good priced recaro's or something, not really a major thing now just something
mercedes 15 slots i know theres some for sale right now, but i have no money.
or corvette salad shooters in white would look pretty dope
theres defenately more things i would like to do, but thats what is reasonable for now.
what it looks as of today, repainted the hubs to match steelies, no joke reminds me of some bbs RA's, and yes it needs moar lows.
the super sketchy metal wire holder till i get a heat shield put in, also what do i do with the lower tube now? just leave it there?
