It looks great... that tint won't fly in most states... especially the front windshield.<p>LOVE the Matte Black...and it is tasteful in it's sinister look. Good luck.

Re: (SeventyR)

Easy enough to remove and the OP really should remove it.<br>Fl may be one of a handful of states that allow it

Re: (volvosince16)

Damn you took those pics by FA's and 16th street!!! That used to be my old surf spot when I lived in Gainesville when I was in high school. My buddies and I used to drive over every weekend to go surfing!!! Brings back a lot of memories before they dredged up all the sand and made it a beach there, at least there was a beach there last time I saw it. Anyways, kick a$$ car man, good luck in the sale!!! My dad my be interested, he lives in Gainesville still and was looking for a 850R or a T5r. You wouldn't be willing to trade a really nice old 544 would you??

I really would like to buy this... "thing"... but what would an old 65 years old Jewish guy be doing driving something like this?! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I drove that other yellow T5R manual conversion that was for sale a year ago, (also with a Quaife), I have to admit, it <I>was </I>fun

Is mileage just on body? How many miles on Motor / Trans? Any rust? Saw photo of dash - Is passenger airbag installed?<p>I'm looking for a fun car as a daily driver.
