Well guys, apparently VW was having a blow out sale on all Vortex(Aftermarket company of VW) for my model passat.. So I went ahead to the dealer and ordered a rear hatch spoiler for my passat.. Should be here this week.. Can't wait to get it color matched and on my car... here's an idea of what it looks like. I think it adds a very unique look to the wagon without looking so retarded like most spoilers.. the key is to make it look oem, and yet not.. :thumbup:

Wagon looks purdy. The pix don't look squished but they aren't being resized properly. I'll look in to it. Lo siento.

Wagons are awesome!! I was looking at an Audi A4 Avant Ultrasport at the beginning of the summer, then I decided to keep it old school and buy a Mk2. Your wagon is begging to be slammed!

Inspired by Jake's post I'll give some updates on das wagon...

Got a nice job so soon das deutchmarks will be rollin in.. So my small list of projects are all over the place..
At the top of my list is to replace the motor mounts. Under acceleration at 60mph I'm getting vibrations in the car. Yes it could be the cv's or axel's but when my alternator went poop in november I physically inspected the motor mounts and there is definitely fluid leaking from the passenger motor mount. Next I'm going to get some new roof rack covers because I broke the little clips when I pulled off the rails too see what the car would look like with shaved rails. Right at the end of the school year I cut out the 40lb suitcase resonator and welded in a straight pipe. I love the deep throaty sound of the car but under WOT it's super raspy and sounds gross. I'm going to buy a Magnaflow 20" resonator to weld in which will relieve the raspy sound at high rpms and give it that wonderful Euro blurble that I love. Beyond that everything else I want to do will be roughly free because I have the parts or just requires labor. Been chasing down a small oil leak and after replacing the VCG's I read up that there are small caps in the back of the block that are notorious for leaking. I already have them from a kit I bought to replace all up gaskets. So yay for $0 spent. Also I need to go over the interior really well and potentially replace little parts here and there. They're not neccessary but I'm a little anal and OCD so that could be another thing.

Like Jake was saying if the funds permit I may be buying STS coilovers for the car. There is currently a group buy on my Forum (passatworld) for a really damn good price.. Who knows? Beyond the coilovers I'm debating using the funds towards buying a bike or some other older VW/Audi.. Not really sure.. Anywho I guess I'll post pics of anything if I find it worth while.

So in two weeks time I have spent $778 in parts for maintenance parts for my car.. God that could have gone to suspension.. But maintenance>mods... Purchased CA kit, Motor Mounts, Pads & Rotors.... Updates as I install..

Edit: Thinking about selling this bitch at the end of the summer after all the maintenance done.. ideas??

Hmm. I like Das Wagen but it's the wrong transmission and wrong motor and wrong wheel drive considering what you really like in a wagon... Can you sell it for another wagon that's 4Motion, 5/6-speed manual, W8?

Or would you even want another one... could be time to move on for something else. Like a 540iT wagon.
