Well, maybe. It isnt that big of a raise, but it is a promotion!<p>Im thinking ill start with kelly CAI, JRL mod, paint my 04' faded trim, tinted tails. Nice and cheap for now. and maybe i'll pay for a good exterior detail, take care of some of the "inattentive parallel parker dents" cause by my damn neighbors over the last year....<p>Also - I reaaally want a black grille, i like the heico ones, but who the hell wants to pay 179+ for it. Anyone know of anyone looking to unload one? or a place i can find one on the cheap?<p>Woohoo! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Congratulations! Might try the classified section here, or IPD had a deal on some nice R grills that could be easily painted. <p>There you go, I see that post beat mine by 1 minute...

I work in the financial industry, i know what i want and what i can afford. Im not willing to settle on a house right now just because obama wants to give me $8k, and because prices are low. I dont make that much money <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
