Don't think it would be a big issue between our two kids and the will is very clear about who get's what. We have it worked out that everything we have bought will be paid off when I eventually get to retire so they will have the house and a bunch of 15 to 20 year old toys.

Well, you could always get married and start a family - that should take care of any excess money you may have -

don't like is putting it mildly.

unfortunatly I'm going to have to finish school first. I've been where I'm at for so long it's almost impossible to get out. people outside the industry know how dumb people inside are so it's hard to get out. and I'm not going to stay in this field. it would be pointless to try a different company. I've been on the supply side of things and I've dealt with all the big players in town and they are all exactly the same.

I'm getting out. it's just going to take time.

I've had Pro-Kit on stock Sachs shocks on stock 18" rims with the Golf GTI. While it worked nicely it wasn't optimal over bad roads. Eventually I had to get Pro-Kit Sachs shocks to match them but the ride became quite harsh (I find most German factory sports package harsh anyway).
Yeah STI pink drop bout 0.6", which is still too high for my liking, but I've heard good thing bout STI pink for sure.

I suppose I technically attained that status about 6 years ago when the son finally moved out. Still have the kids of course but they don't cost me much anymore.

What about the Koni Yellows? A long time ago I thought I would end up with them; 0.8" drop. My car has TRDs on it right now because I ordered it that way.

Could be worse. You could be on your third day of having pretty much nothing to do.
