Was a 91 Passat wagon, 5sp with too much blood sweat and tears in it. Had ~200k when the Tranny grenaded doing 75 on the freeway, and took have the drivetrain with it (snapped a half shaft and blew the opposite cv joint) Was heavily modified with some nice rare parts. Namely the Hella DE headlight setup and the Reiger body kit. The engine had the big euro cams, and upgraded intake and throttlebody with Techtonics headers, high flow cat, full stainless 2.25" exhaust with borla muffler. Put down 160 hp to the wheels.

No it wasn't. She was an evil b!tch. I miss her but am so much happier without her. Never seen a car that was harder on my sanity or wallet. Car payments would have been cheaper than the constant repairs. After the entire cooling system (t-stat, fan switch couple hoses, etc) crapped out the DAY AFTER putting on the new bumper, I swore if anything else major broke, it was gone. Needless to say I sold the whole shebang with all the spares for $500.
