It’s been awhile since I last posted about my car but since then I did a lot of work to it. Life for the bug started as a 1998 2.0 5 speed. In 2000 things drastically changed for the better. A local shop APTuning did the swap for a guy. He kept it for a year or so then sold it. The second owner didn’t take very good care of it. Its a daily drive so it shows some wear and tear. I bought it over a year ago and absolutely love it.

VWmotorsports RSi 18" wheels the white ones (uber rare)

Hey can't wait to see the pics. I am working getting my cup kit on also. I remember talking with you at the Campbelltown show a few years back. Do you ever go to any of the GTGs in the lancaster area?
