I bought it for my wife as a run about. It had a blown engine at the time and only cost $500. Replaced engine and fixed a bunch of other stuff and now have a little over $3500 in it. I've been driving the car more than she has so for now, I'm Taking Over!:shoot: Hope to show the evolution from the purchase, to the crash, to the rebuilding, and thru the customization.
So far, CAI, new struts and springs last month, custom tail lights, window tint, new paint and repaired body a year ago, new 18" Motegi MR7 wheels and Toyo rubber. Just dipped with rally stripes last night! Still thinking of a name that my wife will agree on. Working on suspension and other mods soon. Glad to be here!:)

Very nice. I know what you mean about taking over. I bought mine to get to work when my old golf was past it. I love it. I drive it everywhere. I drove it to the letterbox to check the mail today.:)
