Thanks! This is an old pic, from 2002, or as I like to call it "too fast, too furious phase." I took the Audi TT wheels off, they weighed at least 50lbs each.

I'm the second owner. Bought it in 2001 with 43,000 miles on it for $10,500. It's been a pretty good car, it's been through hell and back.

The engine ceased around 90,000 when a valve snapped and tore up a cylinder and piston. Put a new one in with 40,0000 miles on it.

It's back on the road and banging corners!
