Going to celebrate this week end with a nice wash and detail session, then I am going to drive the shit out of her at a GTG on Sunday [>_<], before she goes inside for the winter.

Damn... Looks great! Gotta love the AIRBAG light tho haha. Mine has been on for at least 2 years. I don't really feel like forking over $1400 or so for a new side airbag module so I pulled my cluster and put black electrical tape over the light lol. First time in YEARS that I don't have any lights on *knock on wood*

Wow, a 98.5 with 24,854 miles. That's really low, I put about 30k miles on mine in a year. About to come up to 80k pretty soon.

I wonder how well it has depreciated since it had such low mileage, near retail value anyone? The sticker price on mine is $28000 If I remeber

I turned 175K last week.
175,000 x 1.609 = 281575KM, yea, she doesn't sit still for long.

Motor has maybe a cpl thousand kms on a fresh rebuild. Car is low miles because previous owner never drove it. Had too many other toys.


you lucky sob [evilsmile][:p]

Thanks [:D]


Damn... Looks great! Gotta love the AIRBAG light tho haha.

Thanks! Yeah, my Sparco wheel throws that... looking to get my 3 spoke re wrapped in suede or Alcantara.


does the interior still smell new?

Smells good [:d]


Wow Bill, I didn't know your car was such a low mile gem!

Yea, I like 'em young... wait, haha [o_o]


hey what is that body kit ??

Wow... thats REALLY low mileage. ABT kit? Looks good!

Thanks, RS4 front, ABT sides and rear, moulded into oem bumper.


what wheels are those? looks great, whish my car ahd that low of miles.

19" Oettinger RZ's, thanks!


Thanks for the compliments guys, going to be getting this bish tuned up a little more and likely getting in a GT30 of some sort a little down the line. It's nice to have a fun summer toy, but I dread this time of year... almost time for her to go under covers for 6 months.

Why the fresh rebuild at only under 25K???

It was built to the T's when it was new... prev owner did a piston in, had it cleaned up with a fresh rebuild. The $ wasn't a problem for him. I bought it with literally 5 minutes on the new motor.
