Those with mods/upgrades to your R's:<p>1) What mods do you have?<br>2) Is your car under warranty? Factory or extended?<br>3) Have you had any problems because of your mods? Details please?<br>4) Have you ever been denied warranty work because of the mods? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> Details please?<p>Even though this is for my own edification, I figure we could keep it around as a mini-FAQ <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

The R is just fast and now if I want to watch TV in it or listen to a high quality system I can do that as well as go fast. My wheel/brakes alone made up for the weight differences.<p>The sales side at my dealer is great but unfortunately the service and parts people that deal with the public are about the same caliber as the people at Taco Bell and about as knowledgable too.<BR><BR>
