Holy crap that's a beautiful car! Any plans for it besides the chrome removal? It looks amazing stock, I can't imagine doing much else to it.

R32 is one of my absolute favorite exhaust notes!

Could possibly get away with that on the grill. but the piece on the hatch is clearly stuck on. I don't like how it's not a flush piece with the hatch.. Rather it just be gone and body color. Grill will be red for now and eventually black when I crack the lights open and paint those black too.

It's not getting much. Already has the exhaust flapper mod (sounds awesome). May eventually do a res delete because I've been youtubing like crazy and it sounds damn good flapper open, but I'm a little reserved on how it'll sound closed. It needed new shocks so some Koni Yellows are on order. and May eventually go for the ground control coil over conversion as well.

Also have a complete sound system on order since I want some nice tunes in the daily

Between this car at the G35 with full exhaust I have the 2 best sounding 6 cyl motors imo

Yayayayayayayayaya! This makes me happy. Lou was showing me the pics last night but I had no idea what member it was.

VR6's are definitely one of my favorite sounding engines. Top 3 easily. I think you're going to enjoy it. Make sure the sunroof tubing and drains have been replaced. Common problem with all mk4's.

And if you ever decide to sell the Aristos.. let me know. :thumb:

Definitely one sweet ride. I use to drive a VR6 a long time ago and I miss the VW feel. That R32 has always been on my top fav list as well.

Enjoy your ride and love the red.

So this already happened...



Need to wait for the rest of the suspension refresh stuff to show up then they'll go on... and replace a wheel bearing while I'm at it.
