Well after getting more into the DSM community I seem to think that I got ripped off. I bought a 90 TSI AWD for 2000. Has bad struts, bad 1st,2nd gear syncros (going out), needs a new rack for the powersteering ( only thing I was told about ), and lots o rust. I guess I only really got ripped off by about 500 bux.

I was so excited to get into a AWD DSM I wasn't thinking straight, now I know for next time I guess.

Anyway if you see any you like be sure to ask before you buy, I'd hate to see the same thing happen to you or worse. All in all I paid a total of 2800 ( new ACT 2600 Clutch = 800 ) for this car to run a 14.4 in the 1/4 and NOTHING has ever beat me off the line yet. I have only lost to other Modded DSM's that are a FWD Turbo from a roll. SO for 2800 I's say it wasn't that bad of a buy, but I could have done better.

This doesn't look good. I hope this isn't going in the direction I think it is. :(
