Good. Now buy a B5 S4 and feel my pain as well.

YAY for you, and be careful with the Alcantara. Love it, but it wears rough if you're hard on it. And your seats are nice. Are you racing it? Do you need the lightweight seats? I wouldn't waste the money unless it's a comfort thing or you're really racing. You've already got the excess weight stripped out. I think the only extra yours has is AC and a pass. seat, yes?
The stock leathers? They're cracked and they are terrible for hard cornering. Plus the heating element in the driver's side is broken, which is extremely inconvenient for my cold butt. I had Sparcos and harnesses that I sold with the intention of getting seats I actually liked. I've never had a problem with alcantara. I think it's awesome. The two Sparcos, two Corbeaus, brackets, and harnesses are $750, so why not? I want them and they're cheap, so I don't really consider it a waste of money. Less weight is less weight. My car doesn't have rear seats, the spare, rear wiper, wiper fluid reservoir, armrest, and there's no sound deadening under the carpet. It really isn't stripped. It looks full interior, and the cage pretty much offsets any weight reduction that was gained by removing everything. I lived without the AC, but I just can't do it again. I'm considering deleting power steering since the pump is dying anyway, but I'm not sure. VRs at least have the option of deleting just power steering without also deleting AC - 1.8Ts don't. Probably won't make a decision until the pump actually decides to die, lol.

Don't read a book by it's cover... or a Jetta by it's "cavalier" exterior.
Mk4s don't even come with a 2.0T. They came with the 1.8T, which is even worse.

Come back to the awesome side.

Audi actually has a 1.8T, too. I believe there's is the AEB compared to VW's AWP. I'd never own either, but I've been around the track in 034's time-attack A4, which is an AEB, and OMG. So much awesome.

Excited to have a day off tomorrow. Even more excited because it's so I can go get a new tattoo!

THIS IS THE WORST.

While my car was dead this winter I drove my mom's car, and the heating element on the driver's side is broken on her car. My sad cold butt all winter long. Whomp whomp...

New dog walking/training client! Sounds like an easy case, and better yet, it's getting him ready to be up for adoption

Brian has been gone for three days and I've gotten SO MUCH DONE AROUND THE HOUSE.

He's coming back tonight with a flat screen tv about twice the size of our 90s 19".... YESSSS.

Get to spend some time being crazy with Meagan's herders tonight, and then go to a puppy raiser meeting! Squee!
