Round 2! Platinum gray edition!

So most of you if not all know that a few months ago my last jetta was totaled in an accident that was completely my fault. Lesson learned I was dumb and I'm lucky no one was hurt. After all the insurance business was done I was left with 5 grand for my next car. So the search was on! After a few weeks went by my buddy stumbled upon this gorgeous 2004 platinum gray jetta gls. A little over 78K miles, 2.0L 5-speed, mint black heated leather interior, sunroof, for 4 grand. Long story short my buddy negotiated the guy down to 3600 and by the end of the weekend I officially owned the car.



Before I even drove it I picked up some new front brake pads and rotors since the old ones were past due, and found some long beaches for sale locally with tires. My buddy did me a huge favor and got the car ready while I was at school during the week so when I picked it up the next weekend it was all ready to go. He even surprised me with a free GLI suspension(rear installed) and 20mm spacers installed in the rear.

Plans for now are mainly maintenance related, new parts will come with time. Shooting for changes around summer time hopefully. For now I'm getting the hang of the new transmission and just loving being back on the road again.

Now for a few pics...

Yeah my 2002 was an auto so I'm having fun with this one. I've gotten used to the takeoffs already though. Now I just have to practice them on an incline.

I can't see the pictures!!! Is there a way to get them back up? Sucks about the previous car but at least you were alright. Sounds like you came out on top though with this one.
