    Well...I bought this thing late June 2006. Found it sitting in a junkyard and I was amazed at the condition it was in for a junkyard car. They wanted 1000 dollars for it and they said the tranny was screwed. So I offered em 800 dollars CAD for it, topped the A4LD up with ATF and drove it home without a hitch. The car drove perfectly straight, braked straight, has pretty much 0 rust except under the battery tray and best of all...had black leather interior! The only bad thing about the car was that it was an automatic 4 cylinder, but I didn't really care because I would be swapping the entire powertrain anyway.

    Heres some pics just after I got it...

    That's about it for now...Hopin to have the car running mid-late next month. Pretty well all it needs now is fuel lines, which I am upgrading and a few little wiring things are left. I'll keep this thread updated as I get things done to the car.

    DOH, oh well, i'll probably be getting rid of the front seats anyway for some racing seats that give some support. I'll probably be flying out the window if i take a corner too hard with those seats :rlaugh: The ashtray door works though. It didn't when I got it, the spring kinda came off the underside of the door, but when I put the spring back on, it worked :D

    Titanium Frost and Light Titanium are different. :) Yours is lighter, ours is a little darker.


    I will one day own a stock 5.0 90 Light Titanium Notch to go along side my Hatch....
