Supposed to drive up to Indiana tomorrow morning and check this car out. Owner now says both the turbo and alternator are shot on top of a constant misfire. So.. you rebuild the engine, but fail to address those issues? I'll pass.

Was this a CL find?

Looked really clean, but had new bumpers and side skirts. Would've taken them off cause the rockers are usually shot.

It IS on Craigslist, but the guy has a pretty good reputation on the Facebook DSM Classified. Look like he sells cars monthly.

Ordered Airlift Suspension w/3P Management. Bonus check should be here by the end of the month, so I'll probably order wheels. Still trying to decide which.

I think CCW makes a better looking wheel. Hows the pricing compare though?

These are Rotiform's cast series. $234 per wheel. They're a bit heavy, but you can't beat the price.

Should be done with this car come Summer. Suspension/Wheels/Clutch/Power. Then I'll probably grab something to build for the track.

LOL we seem to have the same taste in cars!! I just picked up a MK7 about a month ago for a stellar deal! I saw your post about getting an OBDeleven and that made me wonder lol I hope you're enjoying it as much as I'm enjoying mine!
