Yes I have decided to go stock this time, I converted my 85 Cabby back in 2000 to quad lights, Euro bumpers etc. This time I'll stay stock. Got your reply also on my other posting on engines, our two kids are all still in the K to 5 grade level, so no big education expense yet. Here in Inland Southern Cal , its green lawns etc, but notice the picture, it is almost desert like on the outskirts of the housing subdivisions.

Very nice car.

Yes I love the stock too, (I also have an '87) and the only change is the OEM quad headlight grille (meant for a GTI).

Loks great!
