A buddy of mine has a bunch of VWs. I asked him if I could rent one of his 85 Golfs to drive around while the focus is out of commission and he gave me this one instead.



Has Neuspeed springs matched with Koni adjustables. Front and rear Neuspeed sways. Handling is superb.
The wheels are 19'' BBS
Car is also is tuned by APR.

I have enjoyed driving this and dont want to give it back. I didnt know a car could be comfortable and handle this well at the same time. Mine is far from comfortable but handles well.

that sucks about your SVT but it looks like you got a fun car to cruise around in until she's fixed [thumb]

The rims are a little flash for my tastes, but that's a nice looking ride.

That a good friend for letting you roll it.

^^^That reminds me
If anyone knows anyone with a VW with 18'' BBS like these and wants to trade for 19'' Let me know. My buddy does want to downsize.

The only thing i dont like about it is the badge, which is normally accompanied by problems. When they run right, their awesome cars

He hates the mirrors too. But Cant wait to replace them.

Matt, I have to say I LOLed a little at your comment. My family has owned 3 dodges, all of which have had at least 3 Transmission. One has had constant suspension issues, and spark issues.

Even though we have had so many issues my Dad still buys dodge, not because he likes them but because he has aspergers so he has to do the same as he always does. Which can drive a family nuts.

FR Short shiftier weld broke. I couldnt believe it. A adjustable CFM one will be at my door today. I just got the car running again after 2 weeks in the garage. The CMC blow into pieces then I tightened the Bleed valve on the transmission to tight and stripped it so I had to buy a Heli coil that was an 10M x 1.0 (had to special order). I have had some stupid things happen in the passed few weeks.
