thanks spiru-yours is looking great-those wheels really set it off- now whats next:)
Kinda at the crossroads, but I'm thinking since the 2L is what it is, it would be cheaper just to buy a turbo NB. As much as I love my NB I don't think its worth the money...Body kit, might be the next ticket!:)

spiru-i hear ya-the 1.8t is a powerful engine-you would be pleased with its performance.

I know you hate to stick a lot of money in for mods-and maybe not have performance you desire. If its performance your looking for i would go with 1.8t. Man if you could run into turbo s that would be nice. I also like the front and rear end of turbo s.

But i see your delima-you have a beautiful nb and you hate to let it go.

Thanks for comment fowvay-you have a beautiful nb, and a lot of knowledge on how to.

Thanks for info fowvay and billsbug I see now how to post a series of pics . Another thing I cant figure out-larger pics-I have easy share now-but I just got photo bucket, and I still cant figure it out. With easy share I wind up with the option of best for web and that reduces the size of pic a lot(Maybe under the new .org system I can post larger pics without down sizing to best for web). Please tell me how to do this.
