Stockish? Lets change that

Postby Luggage » Wed Jun 12, 2013 9:32 pm

Helllo, I'm Josh, and I learned of this site through Motorstadt X here in Michigan through Janssen and it seems like an awesome place to show your Build thread.

I have a 2001 2.Slow Jetta GLS Auto with 171,4xx Miles on it

so far i have done NOTHING, well kinda.... I debadged the car, Blacked out my reflectors, Disabled DRL's, upgraded my radio and installed a giant Subwoofer just for kicks.

I bought her for $1,800 last July in Marine City, Mi with 150,000 on it. within a few weeks my water pump crumbled, so with that happening i took the opportunity and replaced my Timing Belt along with it as well as replacing my Camshaft sensor which was throwing a CEL at me. then about 3 months after that my alternator went. replaced that and now I am perfect. (besides burning oil & on and off cel for o2 sensors)

and thats my story I'll be here and there and hopefully will be doing a full Build this december!

Good to see you made it, Josh! Glad to have you. Check out the long-ass build of my Coupe sometime to understand how I could've possibly poured so much money into her. Click on the name "1990 Jetta Coupe VR6" in my signature.
