Re: Thanks George (gdogg16)

Car looks great - the gauge pod is sweet - the match is dead on for the interior color. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>The seat was an SOB to get into but once you are in it was much more comfortable than I thought it would be. I was expecting a louder exhaust with the custom setup but it was nearly stock sounding with the resonator. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>

Problem was getting in and out and the longer trips to club meetings. With the S70 I changed to an Evo XL seat which is a bit wider and give a bit more comfort.
