Its a long list, but its coming along very nicely. The car is reliable, fun to drive and a blast in the canyons. Cheers for German engineering! Here is a list of what I have planned in the next 6 months.

Radio (currently no stereo in it at all)
• Height adjustments – I still think the front is a tad high…will cut the coils down just a bit.
• Shifter rebuild – Its a bit noisy
• 5 Speed Upgrade
• Bumpers – debating wheter or not to do the small Euro bumpers or just shorten these.
• Paint and Body – Just knocking out the little dings and little rust spots and give it a nice repaint in the factory Fjord Blue.
