    well, nothing major at first ... I'll throw on some 16x7 BBS RX Wheels with some all season high performance tires since I live in washington (I'm thinkin Toyo Proxes 4) ... then I'll throw in an H&R RSS Coilover setup ... then a UUC short shifter and I want to swap out the tan interior to an all black interior ... after that, since I don't want an all out racer, I'll throw in some nice european 325 goodies inside and out :bigthumb:

    no disrespect or anything, but what is it you yanks have with all season tires?
    they arent worth the money. its really that simple. and with high performance winter tires available i dont really see a particular reason to go for all season tires. especially since 2 sets of 16 inch tires arent exactly that expensive.

    anyway, just a thought. apart from that: great project, great car. i wish you the best of luck.

    nope, no repaint .. I like the color a lot and the paint is in awesome condition :bigthumb:

    as for tires ... I still don't know which I want yet, but it does rain here a lot, so that's why the all seasons are up on top of the list ... and the Proxes 4 tires are still meant for high performance when it's dry so I don't see a porblem with those :squint:

    damnit, things are not going as planned ...

    first my mother told me she'd buy the BMW for me and I could pay her back (plus the difference) when we sold the 510, but now she says the 510 has to sell first :o

    damnit, more bad news, the only scirocco i like (black, 16V, awesome BBS wheels, super clean and low miles ... all others are ugly and high miles and shit ...) well, the owner of it just got laid off, so he's not selling it anymore ... I guess I'm looking at MkII 16V GTI's now :o
