I've noticed that with most car forums -- the DSM forum I used to frequent was full of rude and inconsiderate people. BC is more like the side of the family that i CAN stand.

OH MAN! You are SO right! When I had my DSM, those people on there were such DI*KS that I couldn't stand it there, reasoning why I sold my DSM. They just were NOT up to any ideas whatsoever.

Thanks Shadd I was trying to find a Mk3 2 door Golf with the 2.0, but those seem to be SO rare... this one came along at the right time, and I got it for a pretty good price too. First performance mod will be a cam, haven't decided which one yet...

And yeah, the DSM forums were so closed minded it was painful. I asked a few questions, and either they wouldn't get answered or they'd get answered with some smart *** comment that didn't help at all. I miss that car, I don't miss the forums (or everybody that wanted to race me. THAT got old).

EDIT: Regarding the torque spec of the axle nut, I found this thread:

Just jumping in to agree with the 3 pedals > 2 pedals comments
(But 6 gears is still better than 5 )

congrats on the new wheels.
