Hahaha yes. I stuck it out for a year and a half, but to be 100% honest, i got extremely tired of the heat. 6-7 months out of the year it was upper 80s to mid 90s, with 90%+ humidity. I shouldn't break a sweat walking out to my car! I did love florida outside of the crazy heat. The other thing is i missed family and friends. I have a bunch of florida friends but things are just wayyyyy different down there.

I told myself i was done with illinois. It was pretty hard for me to move back home. Ultimately it came down to me missing family in friends. If they were all down there, I could have gotten past the heat. And that's what i sort of justified to myself when i moved back. 3 months of shitty winter is a small price to pay to have your best friends and family around.

Solar Yellow. Some paint correction needed after 12 years. That's my next "mod". Anyone know a really good body shop on the northwest side?

I've upgraded my 03 to the current 04/05 part revisions - PCV valve, coolant overflow bottle, stage 1 ECU/injectors, and the LSD. PWerks in Plainfield rebuilt the gearbox to stage 1 and installed the Mopar LSD in the process. Best mod ever.

Had to ditch the stage 1 because of IL emissions, bought a DSP instead. Next thing I need to do is the whole 1000cc injector email tune game and max out the stock turbo and fuel.

A meaningless Competition?

So first thing you're going to change after you pick it up?

Also be sure to use the tag #golfr and watch how many suggested posts become golf equipment and golf courses.

Tails...I like the Euro-Spec ones. Possibly some adjustable coils for a nice drop at the same time.

I like the Cadiz but wheels would be next. Perhaps BBS or Neuspeeds.

LED tails are definitely on my radar.
But that 10 inch sub was worth it

I'm not feeling the led tails. It's not as dramatic of an upgrade as it was on the mk6.
