I've seen better, I once read a build thread of someone doing this to, I think, a porsche 944, last time I saw it it wasn't finished though. But he was doing it meticulously and had a big budget and lots of custom machined and fabricated parts. It sounded like he was going to dial that TDI up too. » 10/24/14 5:01pm Yesterday 5:01pm

I think if they are very particular about how their dealerships are setup.

My last car buying experience was awful, 10% of people I dealt with are people I'd recommend to a friend... I went to 10 dealerships. Maybe less.
