Man, I would love the Scirocco prototype.  Alan, as far as the Volvo goes, anything with the name THOR in it has to be pretty potent!  You have been drooling over them for a while.  Are you going to get one or not?

Jay, your momma.


I absolutely love the C30, especially their customization program where you can order special a la carte options and various interior and exterior color combinations (for a one time premium of $300), but the pricing is a bit extreme.
Base C30 (version 1.0) starts at $22,000 which I think is about $2,000 overpriced, but the version 2.0 package is a better value for $25,000 -- however, if I add the customized colors and options (almost fully loaded) it adds up to a mind blowing $38,000!!!  The concept is great, but the pricing is not.
For that price I could have a fully loaded Volvo S40 (before discounts), or an almost fully loaded Audi A3 V6 quattro DSG.

You could build your own custom C30 here:

BTW...Are the c30s based on the focus chassis?

Now, so the GTG thread doesn't go off on a tangent. I'm flying out to the OC on Friday to pick up my Nogaro Blue '03 A4 1.8TQMS-ROTFL.

Hopefully, it'll be mostly show and go ready by the GTG at D&B's....it has a few mods already :wink: I just need to finish it out a bit over this summer. I'm stoked, I found one with the right milage, color, trim and options...not to mention a few choice mods  :twisted:

More details later...pics will come too. So I hope you're all not too dissapointed. I know several of you were pulling for the off-colored Honda hatch with a Cherrybomb on it...

Nice JR, can't wait to see it when you get back. Glenwood Canyon was the suck when we came back from Vegas. I assume that is the way you are going? So just be ready for it to be slow through there.

Also, watch the road damage on I-70 in Utah on the hills, there are plenty of places where the asphalt has pushed and you might catch some air if not careful. :) It is worse west bound than east bound but I noted in in both directions.

I am glad that you ONLY let th suspence go seven pages and no more, eight would have been tacky!  :lol:

Noted.

Also, for the goodies- List of mods :twisted: At 49K it has:
REVO Stage 1+
380cc Injectors
Thermal Race Exhaust
Eurocode FMIC
Ecode Xenons
S4 blades
Trunk Lip
Tinted Tails
Painted Lowers
Hardwired V1
Neuspeed Snub
ABT Grill
3M Carbon Tint

Couple other things that aren't coming to mind at the moment. You'll notice no wheels or suspension. It's originally a Colorado car with the winter and sport packages.

I'll be putting Neuspeed Sports (loved them on my Passat), H-sport Sways and wheels on when it gets back...and an intake and changing out the BOV for a DV. If anyone wants to help- HOLLA!

I might be changing out my suspension if you are interesting in my STaSIS Coilovers... Also skip the intake. It was not worth the money. Let me know if i can be of any help with the B6 A4 platform

Nice choice in cars by the way. You won't be disappointed.

From what JR told me... it was a like a 2000 or $3000 upgrade to get.  So it is very rare.

Yeah, they didn't have a Nogaro option but it was a $1900 special order from the factory. The car is originally from CO. No body kit (no USP front) :cry: but it has painted lowers, s4 blades and trunk lip/spoiler thing.

Eric, thanks for the heads up, but I just found some Neuspeed Sports on the 'zine I'm going to throw on. Budget doesn't allow for C-Os. And Randy was just going to sell me an intake he had at the shop for pocket change so I figure what the hell- but I can skip it if it's worthless?

Yeah, I'll let you know. I've been wanting a B6 since they first came out- in fact when serious car shopping about four times but couldn't find anything I really liked for the money. I still can't decide on wheels so I'll probably be rolling stockers all summer :lol: At least it's not snowing so my flight my leave on time 8O

Ah! I had this great little write-up last night but when I hit "submit" it gave me MySQL Error. Anyway, here are some rough photos from my phone (had the wrong settings too) I took on the way back. I took the long way back through Zion and Bryce Canyon...it's where I got my one and only ticket too :roll:

Anyway, I love my new Audi.
