For all you haters out there this is my latest Dub, needed to replace the passat and this was the nearest to where i live and i only had a day to get a car. It's actually growing on me and the 2.0L engine aint to bad.

how i got it

My Newbee TKYVYQEW0KGrHqYOKiQEy4p6ennBM3VIOM3g_12-1

relocated front plate ready to have the bumper smoothed, going to smooth the bonnet too

My Newbee SAM_1176
My Newbee SAM_1175

Coilovers and drop links are ordered and i have a set of 17inch BBS RC's in the garage that have been painted black, just need to paint the centres and get new BBS centre caps.

comments ???

the 2.0 is a bullet proof engine, can be a little juicy but you'll be used to that with the TT..... Laughing

Kinda like the new beetles even if they are essentially just a golf underneath iirc. Like the direction you're going in with it, what's next?

we fitted FK Street coilovers and they're pretty good for cheapies, we fitted new drop links too just incase the ARB rubbed. The biggest pain in the ass was removing the wind screen wipers as they were rusted on. Thumbs up if you get stuck give us a shout and i'll call Lupton as he fitted mine lol!
