I purchased a 2000 B5 1.8t Quattro from a buddy of mine to use as a commuter car a year ago. I wasn't into to cars but need something with better fuel economy. And since I knew the owner of this car and it was well maintained except for some paint oxidation, I got a good deal on it. Well in the past year it went from just a commuter car to this car is damn awesome. And a lot of fun to drive. I'm into dirt sports mainly trucks so liking a car was a surprise to me. Anyways looking forward to reading up on this site, it looks great.

Welcome, enjoy your new home.

What kind of trucks do you like, m8?

Welcome aboard. Just to let you know, when the mod but bites it bites hard...and expensive.

Thanks. I don't know what kind of truck an m8 is. But I own a '99 gmc Sonoma that's been built to handle the desert terrain very fast. And isn't ideal for everyday driving. Which is why I bought this car and love it. I'm not rich, but I'm not scared to spend a little money for mods. My wife on the other hand may have a problem with it.
