Your Name:

Car's Name:
fatty, or TDI (real creative, right?)

Golf GL 2003

How long have you had your car?
10 years, 7 months and 10 days

Is there anything unique about the history of this car?
By 2007, I was the 3rd owner... so 3 owners within 4 years.

Why did you choose to purchase this car?
Because I wanted a 2-door TDI... after searching for one for a while, I finally found one

Does anything in particular influence the direction you take when modifying your car?
OEM+ and being able to keep it as a functional daily driver

What would you do to the car if money were no object?
In an effort to prevent this from becoming TL;DR, engine, paint color, interior

Who has been your biggest critic of this project?
Myself, I guess

Personal Message or Special Thanks:
A special thanks to all of the many people who have helped me when my car when it has crapped out on me over the years - my support group.
