Ok so first things first I'm probably in the wrong forum but I guess the mods can move me. I just picked up a 2001 GTI VR6. It's my 9th car but my first VW. I've always been into VW and even went to Waterfest last year in a Toyota. As my name says I'm a technician for MINI Cooper. If anybody has a question about them just shoot me a PM. I'm going to post up again in the classifieds, but if anybody reading this has a matchstick red stock hood I'm looking to trade for one for my carbon fiber one. The previous owner didn't have the stock hood and I'm not crazy about the CF. I've been looking into doing the Boser hood if I buy a primer hood and have to paint it. I guess I'll read up on them a little more and figure out what I'm going to do.
I attached a pic. -John

Re: (B4WrNd)

now pull the motor and take many (not man) pics
I think the difference between vw people and other people who don't get us is that to us, things like cruise control only working in 84 degree weather or higher is just our car being an individual
