im not a b5 expert, but doesnt the highline models have chrome lined rub strips?

if so i think with your car being black, with polished wheels would really suit it.

never a waste of money. the phase 2's were shocking with the electric fueling!

easy to turn up the fueling and acctuator with the early engine.. and they fly!

and if you were lucky enough to find one with a bosh fuel pump rather than the lucas one, you could run it half on diesel and half on veg oil with next to no issues :mrgreen:

ecu remap by protune 130 safely to 170 nearly 2 years ago with no issues and a catback exhaust into dual tip nice rasp of it for a tdi. No interiors all standard still like new all covered up was thinking of doing decat but i hear it puts to much strain on turbo since i already have a custom remap :-??
