We're doing a major detail and clean up today, the more I get into this, it's amazing.<br>The rear bumper protective "flap" is still rolled up inside the spare tire area, never been opened.<br>No one has ever been inside the spare tire area.<br>I sit about 1/2" higher. The seats have not even broken in and the seat foam hasn't settled down!<br>The books look like they've been opened only once, probably by the person I bought it from.<br>It still SMELLS NEW!<BR><BR>

Car looks great! Any different plans for it or just do what you did to the other one?<br>

I may just leave the 16's on and not install sway bars.<br>Something nice and smooth this way, even if it's a bit"wobbly"! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Has a 4+ year old set of BF Goodrich Traction T/A with tread left, but maybe it's time for new tires just because of the age?

Re: Replacement for my 2000 V70R (JRL)

So should I scrap it now and buy another wagon? Save myself the headache. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> What could replace such a beauty?<br>What do you think about the tires. I don't drive that car a lot. What's the practical life of tires that only see about 5K miles/year?
