i had my 2000GTI VR6 for 7 years, and regret every day that passes since i traded it in. i did get a kickass Speed3 but there's something about VW's, and the fact mine had a new engine, 68k, and was paid for. Timing chain broke under warranty and VW replaced it...
Man, you should have kept it, LOL! Yeah, the R32 is pretty fantastic just the way it is, that is why I don't plan on doing too much to it. I went to VWvortex...and didn't like it. I know that the VW crowd is serious about there cars, and so am I, but they never really accepted me, so I didn't stick around!

Re: Volkswagen R32

Hey Matt what MOS are you? Guessing infantry type given the CIB in the sig. g10th mountain? are you stateside or over in the sand box.

I used to be Army about 4 years ago.. I was a 15 series, previously 68 series.... Aviation...
Served almost 9 years and got tired of the politics... Or maybe i just wasn't ready to be bossed around my whole life lol

As for VWVORTEX, you have to get around the influx of WANNABE VW enthusists and the children on the board... the other thing is once you go to a GTG or two, people will calm down... I always just gave back smartass comments.. nearly got me banned twice lol .

I'm planning on doing the BMW SSG paddle shifters as seen here in my thread.

Project: SSG Paddle Shifters on a WK!

I am currently sourcing the parts and tearing into the Jeep when I have time.

Escape
I was just going to say... I know there are some after market companies that make paddle shifters for cars that have the auto-stick feature.

I've had a few Vdubs and joined the Vortex. A lot of the guys lived in the Detroit area and would meet up often. Those guys are ass-hats! Each and every one.

Yeah, Dubbers are their own crowd for sure...intense, but some are just too into it and snub their nose at others!

Re: Volkswagen R32

Love VWs, i had a VR6 corrado a few years ago. Absolutely loved it until some old guy decided to turn into me and total it. I like the MKV R32s but i always thought they were over priced with the base starting at what 32k?. I'v always preferred the MKIV R32s though

Corrado's are great cars, love em!!! I agree, the R32 is a little overpriced, but those that buy it think they are worth it.

Okay, like I said yesterday, I will post up some more VW pictures! The first group is just to show the small following of V-Dub owners in Upstate NY.
