Nice collection, love the old W124 verts, a design that's aged pretty well.

I found a critical design flaw in the Golf. This is an absolute game changer that everyone who is considering one of these needs to know about. The problem is with this part of the car:





If you put your phone in there and launch the car, it goes flying into the back seat.

You've been warned.

VW will call it a 'feature' since it prevents phone use while driving.

Phone doesn't fit sideways, phone too big/slot too small (giggity)! And if the door is closed I can't charge it. #firstworldproblems

Drill a 1Ē hole through that cover and slip the cable through. Charging issues solved!

Or...and hear me out on this...I just put it in the cup holder and call it good.

and agree, a Solara isn't fast enough to outrun a glacier let alone throw a phone back.

Downgraded from a Golf R to a Golf S for the winter. Probably going to get a few more unsuspecting victims looking like this.

Oh I'll definitely be getting different winter (and probably summer) wheels as soon as these tires wear out. I couldn't pass up just running the set of Blizzaks I already have that fit just fine and I got a steal on the wheels too (basically free) so it made sense to go as is.

Meh, I'm not a huge fan of tintz. Going to leave windows as is.

I must say though, driving on 2" small diameter snow tires is FAR more comfortable than 19" summer tires...

Golf 1.4T S to Golf R conversion is complete! Back to summer mode now. Now this thing just needs a good bath and it'll be ready to play hard.

I am sure it's very satisfying to have instant shifts...
I guess since I've spent so much of my life with a knob in my hand (after I turned 12)
it just seems like it would be something hard to give up.
