Afternoon of April 22 -- '07 Black Magic GTI four-door ordered from local dealer, deposit made.
Morning of April 23 -- just over twelve hours later -- driving my '00 Passat GLX to the store and hear a quiet "click" from underneath the car, immediately followed by a loud exhaust note. Something has popped off somewhere.
Hey, I'm no psychologist, but clearly this is the Passat saying, "Hey, hey, pick me - I can make a throaty exhaust sound too!"

my car was on its way in for an inspection when the left rear wheel bearing and spindle shat the bed... it doubled the repair bill, so i figured it was its way of saying "go ahead... you'll be better off with an '06"

oh man, thats the truth for sure! (@vrsexxy_GTI)
the night i traded my Jetta 2.slow in, while driving to the dealership to pickup the GTI, it ran so good! Felt tighter and zippier than it had ever since I had it.
Then it was gone.
I love my GTI
I do kinda miss my PG Jetta 2.0 tho...my first dub (sniff)

Re: (thread)

My GTI was mad when it was time to get the Jetta. The HVAC fan started making noise, it wouldn't hot start etc. The second I drove it to a VW dealership, it stopped all of the shenanigans, pulled like a mother to redline, and tried to get me to keep her.
Too bad now she looks like a prom queen turned heroine addict (my friend ran her into the ground).

My tC stopped rattling on the way to the dealership when I got the GLI.

It must have known it was being traded in, and wanted to give you the best deal possible.
