lol yup!!!

i mean i'm letting go of my focus... it needs to happen. but i already have a plan for ze future!!!

Wilhelm - gets an om606 swap for better driveability day to day, turns into my summer cruiser (eventually gets a nice resto job)

W123 240D - gets wilhelm's old 3L motor, simple to fix and tune, becomes rally car/winter beater

as of yet not fully designed custom MR car - becomes summer daily (liter or 600cc engine will get great mileage) AutoX lulz car and track star.

ta da!!!

wilhelm will also at some point get a beefed up suspension (air assisted shocks i think) so that he can be the tow vehicle for all of these lulz.

also brad keeps wanting new cars cause he kept going through jettas... then he got the G...

right now he's just AWD obsessed cause he hasn't driven on the super awesome conti winter tires he bought.

/Timmay ultimate car plan.

I enjoy day dreaming all the time.

Also I never even considered a different car before when I had the SVT A) cuz I like that car and B) cuz I was basically poor as with no job the entire time I owned that car so there was no way I would even be able to think I could possible afford a different car. lol. Also if I had the SVT still I wouldn't be looking at other cars and would be buying a turbo kit for it. Imo I shoulda found another SVT when the red one got smushed but previous to my AWD obssession I had a turbo obsession so I bought jetta cuz already had turbo.

And I got the second jetta cuz I could just swap parts over I had recently bought and only used for like 3 months. so thats my rational.

Anyway. Odds are I'll keep jetta all summer long and then most likely end up trying to find a house or something like that and end up keeping the jetta longer but not the point.

Its fun to daydream. haters gunna hate

Hard to say

I want to say racelands because cheaper fix and more $$ for racecar

but then again you like the bmw more than I like my jetta and you plan to at least have somebody auto-x it so maybe its worth proper suspension...

true......may just see if I can get new shock mounts and leave it stock suspension for now...if not may try to find something used on the forums for same price as new racelands.....

or may just get jetta running tonight and park it for a minute while I figure out what to do lol

Turns over but wont catch not sure what the deal is (probably just forgot to plug something in or an easy fix like that)

didnt have time to work on it while prepping for exams and I have the bmw anyways so wasn't too worried.
