Out with the old, in with the new... went from this beauty:
94 Jetta, 5 speed, 2.0. Gets closer to 40 MPG compared to the 24 MPG I seemed to always pull with the Bonneville. And this ones a 5 speed... yay
Bought it with (what we thought) was a REALLY bad F/L wheel bearing. Got it home, dug into a bit. Turns out, you'll have a LOT of play if the axle nut is at 40 ft. lbs. Tightened 'er down to apx. 150 ft lbs and, while it make a little bit of noise (I'm sure something got damaged by her driving it with the nut so loose), it'* actually a safe car to drive now.
First mod: Removed hubcaps.
Second mod: Will remove the GREEN pinstripe as soon as it warms up a bit. I mean, a mint green pinstripe on a white car? Just whose idea WAS that??
Just had to share, it'* dirty because of the snow, but let me know what ya think!
