This thread needs to be renamed "Who comes from vwvortex."

Hahahha... its a popular place. They have a similar thread on BikeForums and TarckBike (both fixed gear/singlespeed/track bicycle forums).

I'm on the 'Tex' although I don't post much there due to some of the douchbaggery I've seen in there. My past VW's include: 1980 Scirroco, 1983 Rabbit GTI, 1984 Rabbit GTI, 1984 Audi 4000 Quattro (in the same family), 2 2003 GTI's, a 2006 Passat, and currently a 2009 GTI (love it).

Yeah, that place used to be a pretty good resource; now I'm just embarrassed to even go in there.

My second car was a 1986 Scirocco 8v (first was a '69 Firebird but at 16 decided a VW was "cooler"). Learned to drive stick on it. I drove the shit out of it. When I got it the odometer didn't work and was stuck at 118,000. I put untold numbers of miles on it over two years without even checking the oil once. I finally gave it to my dad and he sold it when the clutch went out.

Ive rebuilt a couple VWs recently. Had to take a break as it was to expensive so my current project is sitting while I spend a little less money every month finishing my cafe build.

My 2003 VW Passat 1.8T 5-Speed. Currently low mileage only has 68K on the clock, not bad for 7 years old. It has a full custom 2.5" TBE, TurboSmart DV, Custom Intake, Boost Gauge, H&R/Bilstein Setup, and Drilled/Slotted Rotors. I just sold the RS4 Wheels a couple weeks ago, probably buy new wheels in spring. I was gonna sell it but being paid off I have a hard time doing that.

theres a guy here in town w/ 4 sciroccos. and why did you go obd2?

I will admit as cool as the Scirocco is, I like the style of the Corrado a little more. I went obd2 because the turbo software I run (42# injectors) was real rocky with obd1 so the same tune for obd2 is much better.

hey now! I love mkIIs, I eventually own a mkII Jetta coupe and/or a Rabbit. I've got a project '75 bus still sitting at my parents that will hopefully get on the road in the next month or two.
