Newbie from Albuquerque: 2003 SE

Hello! Been lurking around here for a while now and decided to sign up and start posting. I bought my wife a new Turbo Beetle and I took ownership of her Red 2003 SE with an automatic.

Before today, it was completely stock. I did the Stealth CAI today (great writeup btw!), put on Hawk HPS pads on new rotors, ordered a SVT front brake setup from BAT, and threw on a set of 99 Contour SVT wheels. So far, the car is an absolute blast to drive and it reminds me so much of my old 98 CSVT ("friend" totaled it last year).

Plans for the future include either an SVT suspension conversion or BAT spring/shock upgrade with an SVT rear swaybar with reinforced rear control arms, balance shaft removal, swapping in an SVT exhaust with flanges so it can be removed, new tires all around, "freshening up" the exterior with a headlight swap or restoration, new tint, and either a plasti-dip'd paint job or vinyl wrap to change it to a matte black or white.

This is an awesome website and I hope to be a part of it for a long while!
