Got her back on the road today. Absolutely love this ride. It's got serious soul that Jap cars lack these days.

It needs to be washed n cleaned inside out still. It's sitting on Raceland Ultimos and i am impressed with how it rides! Honestly i think it drives better than my R32 did on Bilstein PSS9's did. Now when I get a chance I gotta swap in my black leather interior in.

Thanks for the kind words :) I finally got around to washing it up and taking a few shots. Really loving the old beast... Nothing like it on the road. Only badge on the rear is a euro spec GTD TDi badge... Its Di in red and T is silver.

Its hard to do right now, with traffic everywhere and I have been working on my house all the time... It pulls nice n clean all the way to 140ish.

I got a few things to do on it still power vise but for now I am just happy its back and kickn... my other DD was getting a bit boring even thou its a 6M/T.

Been trying to sell it but its kind of hard to get people to buy a high mileage car no matter how pampered it has been all its life.

Took the olé girl out for a drive and a wash at work after doing some work on a R32. Had to clean the soot off the VNT vanes :-D she has been hibernating since about December. Gotta get cracking in the interior swap to black leather

I actually had quite a few heads turning on the highway. She's going into the fabricator next week for some big upgrades. Maybe gonna build a big twin turbo ALH for it this spring with a 6spd conversion

Any 1/4 times? Do you recommend any specific gas stations to go to or brands?

I'm not much into drag racing. It pegs the speedo which is fine with me.

This old thing runs on anything, usually BP or Meijer diesel.
