I figured I'd make a new build thread since my other one for this car was kind-of all over the place. First and foremost, this was my jetta. ^ I'll try and keep this brief, but this car is what got me into the VW community and I've met everyone I know on here through it. I'm still kicking myself for getting rid of it. If you want to read about it or what was done to it, all of that can be found here: http://www.dubsinthebuff.com/threads/seanhickeys-2-slow-mk6.28112/ Now for some background on the .:R, During the spring/summer of 2015, I was deep into my Jetta. It had everything I envisioned for it minus a few things. I was at the point where all I could do with it would be a votex kit and then switching out the wheels every so often. As satisfied as I was with the car as a whole, I just didn't see myself behind the wheel of it any longer. I was fond of .:R32's, MK4's especially. But I wasn't against the idea of a MKV. After browsing the market and seeing the difference in price between a low mileage MK4 and a low mileage MKV, I decided that the MKV was probably a better option for me. I wanted to wait until the new year (2016) to get myself into one but then one day while browsing the vortex classifieds on break, I stumbled across a deal that was too good to pass up. The following week I drove to NYC and brought it home. - In NYC right after I shook the guy's hand and he handed me the keys!
