      Went out on a limb picking up an Eos VR6, but it's been an absolute blast so far, got the coils on and some better tires. Don't know why the VR6 was never offered in the Mk6 or Mk7 especially with a manual. Makes the 1.8T and 2.0T seem so boring. That VR sound is so glorious, especially with the top down haha. Need to address some cosmetic stuff(front/rear bumpers, trunk sanded and repainted and that crooked license plate) then it should be good until it needs chains in 100k Whoever repainted the trunk did a nice job, but didn't clean the adhesive that held the badges and literally painted over it.... I only found this out after removing the badges

      Finally finished my project. It's truly an UBER337 now.

      It's leveled out nicely now. The stock wheels actually don't look too bad either!

      I keep up with traffic with only 90 hp. What's your superpower?

      Got my 2006 XC70 out of the shop, missed it badly. Have put 400 miles on in nine months, time to spend some quality time with it!

      Our '33 Continental Flyer, the only known running example in the western hemisphere. There's a RHD model in New Zealand.

      They're actually pretty fun to drive, glad I grabbed this and didn't wait for the new one. Steering could always be better, but at least it firms up a bit at speed so it isn't totally numb like a lot of cars.

      Hers though likes to be as low of rpm as possible, where it will actually lug. We've complained to the dealer, they've tried to reprogram it. Not sure if yours is the same.

      No mine doesn't seem to lug...my wife's Beetle does, but that's to be expected from the ol' 2.5 that just loafs along. No lugging on the Tig though, is your sister's a '17? If not then it could just be that they tweaked the tuning on the later years.

      lol yeah VW's 2.0 anything are never as reliable as the old 2.5 cars it seems, my ratcheting armrest broke the second day and has already been replaced (also lolzzzz). I dunno, I guess they probably adjusted the tune sometime between '12/'13 ('12 was first refresh year) and '17...that's why I always like to buy old-ass cars at the end of the run.

      In SF for oil spill response training. Snapped a quick shot this morning outside the training building before the parking lot filled up.
