  1. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hey All. I'm new to this forum and to GTI ownership. I picked up a gem of a GTI. 125k miles with almost no rust (only one bit below the rear driver side window). Car is original as far as I can tell. But the paint is terrible so it's in the process of getting stripped for body work and paint...
  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi, I am new to this sub. I just picked myself up this rather rough 1.8T GTI for 1k today. The car is a 2003 with 94k miles, previous owner says it overheated and died last week. It is a manual trans at least. I have no experience with this platform. I did own a MK7 GTI prior to this, but It...
  3. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    TLDR: I'm learning to wrench while rebuilding a MK4 GLS. My overall goal is to showcase the car's ideal form. I'll be breaking down and rebuilding the suspension, swapping in a manual, rebuilding the engine, upgrading to a big turbo along with the appropriate intake and exhaust work, finding my...
  4. Golf III & Jetta III
    Hey Guys & Girls, I am new here….1st time VW owner….and now with a special project! Long story short….I have rescued a 1996 Jetta 1.8 CLX which has been abandoned for the past 6 years or so. See the video on my YouTube channel (please like and subscribe). I am a new YouTuber, so please be...
  5. Golf II/Jetta II Cars

  6. A4, S4 and RS4 (B5) Cars
    I'm considering starting a project with a B5 avant should the right car appear. That said, I am very flexible about the details of the car, as long as it is a wagon. I would prefer a running, stick shift 1.8T, Quattro car that is any color but silver, but this is not a requirement. Price and...

  8. Golf II/Jetta II Cars
    I was in the hospital for a few years and need to do something with them. 1990 German Jetta and 1991 Mexico Jetta. A 1986 cabiolet for good measure. No accident damage just seals and time. 1990 Jetta has adaptor to run an iPod so there's that. A usable '74 aircooled engine would be welcomed...

  10. Golf I/Jetta I Cars
    I am selling my 1988 Volkswagen Cabriolet project car. It currently does not run reliably, but will start and drive for about 15 minutes, so plan on bringing a trailer. Located in the Metro Detroit Michigan area. Asking $1,500 but willing to negotiate. Did a complete engine rebuild with new...

    As we continue our restoration and upgrades to the project mk2 (or as we call it in the office: the neverending story, ed), the number of period-correct mods that are available to us keeps getting smaller. But after a summer of spirited driving, we found something to add to the list. Despite...

    When we last left you, MOMO had officially broken ground on their 2015 SEMA project, installing a P3 Cars Vent-Mounted Boost Gauge.  It was just the first of many modifications, but arguably one of the most important due to the fact that in many ways the car will act as a testbed for quite a few...

    With summer officially over, and the more basic among us flocking to Starbucks and their local breweries for Pumpkin-infused everything, those of us in the aftermarket industry have turned our attention to SEMA.  This gathering of automotive excess in Las Vegas brings out the best, and sometimes...

    When we started our mk2 restoration, the decision was made to return the car to its original Cashmere White color simply because, as VW Vortex contributor Wes says, “it hides all manner of sins.” And its true—black and darker hues, while beautiful when clean, tend to show every last speck of...

    With suspension from Air Lift Performance, wheels from Rotiform, and roof candy courtesy of Volkswagen Accessories, you might just say that Project SportWagen is starting to look the part of a proper show car within today's Volkswagen scene, while retaining the ability to be driven daily.  But...

    Let’s be clear, in the simplest terms, in the most convenient of definitions: the Mk7 can fit an absurdly huge wheel without rubbing. This is smart packaging on Volkswagen’s part, as right off the showroom floor, we were able to bolt up a set of 20” by 9” wheels left over from our Turbo Beetle...

    Over the years we've become somewhat famous (or infamous if you happen to be whoever is Editor-In-Chief of Jalopnik this week) for our community's love affair with lowering their car.  Starting with springs and cup kits, then moving to coilovers and eventually full-blown air suspension, the...

    I’ve never really been one for SUVs and crossovers.  The current offerings aren’t the body-on-frame, go-anywhere specialty tools I remember from my youth, and what they lack in capability, they also lack in on-road performance. The current crop isn’t terribly good at handling or being efficient...

    Just where did the Caddy Van USA project come from, and how the heck did it end up in Pennsylvania? This update is going to go into that, and cover some more history behind the story. So come with us on a trip to Wolfsburg, Germany, the historic home of Volkswagen, and a quick look at importing...
