IT'S HERE!!! Dark, dirty, but it is here finally ;)
« on: December 04, 2004, 01:11:27 AM »
Left work early today and one of my friends / employees came down to Denver with me to pick up my Passat Wagon  :)   I took some pictures, but it is obviously dark out, the car dirty, but it drove nicely on the way home... I know one thing, I am sure gonna miss the power of the S4 when I drive it, other than that, so far, very good impression of the car :)

Still no good pictures yet, but I just got the service records for the car (the ones that were available anyways).  And the rear rotors and pads were replaced at 25K miles to the tune of $325 ??  The car seems to drive nicely, smooth and easy to drive.  The cloth seats aren't the best (I prefer my brother's leather seats) but I guess I got it for a good price since it was bare bones :P   Wonder why the brakes went bad so soon..  Going to try and get some things fixed under warranty (middle vents won't adjust up/down, passenger side headlight has condensation in it) in a couple weeks (soonest I could get an appt that I could make).   I bought a Neuspeed rear sway bar that I will have to put on eventually, but that can wait ;)

I love it. My wife has threatened to put me in counseling :roll:

BTW: I did see the car in the flesh and it's pretty and clean and nice and black and sexy :P

Sounds Sweet.  Glad it arrived.  Is the pup happy with it?

That's awesome Jonathan, and your S4 wheels will fit it too!

How much did you end up paying for this?

Dog hasn't ridden in it yet, was waiting for a trunk liner to be delivered, but that may be another week+.  I think he will like it though, more room to lay down, and less slippery than the leather seats with towels on them.  After shipping, it was around $12,050.  It's pretty bare bones except for the in dash Monsoon CD player / radio but it seems to drive pretty nicely!  There are more scratches / imperfections in the paint than I expected, and I the interior has a slightly "different" smell to it (it was a smokers car, so maybe something they tried to use to hide that smell), but other than that, so far I am very happy with the car.  Probably drive it down to Alan's tomorrow night.

Awesome!  I'd like Jen to take a look at it since that is the car we are looking for for her and right in the price range too!

don't buy the trunk liner - go to the discovery store and pick up one of these:


http://shopping.discovery.com/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?endecaSID=100B5522D6C0&langId=-1&storeId=10000&productId=56668&catalogId=10000

waterproof, inexpensive and good at keeping wet or dirty dog feet off the back of the car.

Don't forget my bathmat mod too.

you can get them in the stores too, but that means venturing into a mall this time of year...
