I did want that 20th you linked to Jay, but there was no way I could have worked him down into my budget unfortunately...

Can't wait to see it in person Mike. I know how well you took care of your 90, so I expect this car to always look show quality. ;)
Title: Re: I went to Durango yesterday...
Post by: Spicoli on October 12, 2008, 12:13:48 PM
Mike... NICE!   you'll love the car.


I'm confused... what is the tie with Mercs... I've never heard that before about the 20ths.
Title: Re: I went to Durango yesterday...

Congrats Mike...great looking ride.  Looking forward to seeing it in person.

Looks very nice.  How do you like the turbo? 8)  I bet it's just a little faster than your Audi.

Now get a good set of snow tires.  I was amazed at how well my Mk4 went through the snow last winter.  I think it handles the white stuff almost as good as my old A4 did.

thats awesome.  nice choice.

oh man, boost is amazing. I had no idea what I was missing in my poor little NA 2.8

So much for fuel efficiency with that attitude ;)

Congrats on the 20th Mike!
I'm positive that's a better fit for you for right now.

Thanks Andrew! And I've been keeping out of boost for everyday driving, but it's really nice to know that it's there when you want it. Such a change from the Audi.
