I would ask if they have pics of the resto stuff. I've seen too many tv shows where they just put undercoating over the rusty area.

Xzibit don't do that no more.

Sorry Sterkrezzy I gotta make this about my car stuff for a min lol

so the details are essentially: it is a fully restored car. like down to the body, zero rust/fully rustproofed, fully painted, perfect body deal. windows off restoration. custom full interior. New, lightly upgraded 8V engine. Big brake kit. Maybe 100k chassis miles, but on the complete rebuild, i'd guess a few thousand tops? So its like a brand new MK2.

Really, its a show car. I would imagine it to be issue free, and therefore, daily-able if so desired. Afterall, a GTI is MEANT to be a great, sporty daily driver and generally not much more. But also, this one's a classic, technically, and a show car.

I mean, technically my B5 is a weekend/leisure car. I drive it like twice a week. I don't even really need a car, i got a work truck and my other S4 that my wife drives a few times a week if needed. So it could just be a weekend/nice day car. Leave it garaged during the winter.

Grr but so many questions!
Can i live with ~1XX WHP? Even on a ~2500lb car? Part of me always wanted to try a slow car to drive fast. my 88' fiero did not fit the bill!
But this is a GTI! It looks awesome, its OBVIOUSLY a far superior car to the fiero, so its a completely different car!
But its so bare bones, that it's bare bones! Will i truly enjoy the simplicity, not having cup holders for instance? Maybe.
Can I modify it further? Would I be ostracized for doing anything to it? I wouldn't want to riceburner this guys amazing build. So i'd have to warn him no promises that i'd keep it forever.

All i know is, a MK2 is yet another one of my bucket list cars, and I will probably stomp my own balls if i don't do it. Just kinda wish i had the space and $$ to have tons of bucketlist cars so i'm not sacrificing so much to own any one of them at a time.

Why is this person trying to get rid of such a perfect specimen of an MK2?

To get a perfect specimen of a b5? I mean generally they both have the same range of value. B5 has 3x power lol

It crossed oceans to get to you, and you're just going to leave it in a box?

For shame man, for shame....
It's in. What a pain in the balls. I broke clips. I had to do some depinning. The depin tool they gave me bent and then broke and then the tiny little piece that gets shoved into the hole flew somewhere in my car to never be found again. Yet, it somehow functions and I didn't fry my car.

Sir, I have a monopoly on car talk here.

Sounds like you're pretty hyped from it. lol
Clean mk2s are dope.

Do I think it was worth it? Not right now. Still not enough sound for me...I think it'll be cool once I have the apr exhaust though. Right now I can barely tell if the valves are open or closed at idle. It helped a little though.

The exhaust is already valved. All I've done is add the ability to open and close them with the cruise control stalk or traction control button or it also depends on the driving mode I'm in or I can switch it back to function like oem again.
