Here it is, yet another silver B6. But here is why. Let me back it up a bit. Shortly after acquiring my co-workers silver, automatic, front wheel drive(CVT) B6, for winter… I was quickly criticized from everything with an asshole, condemned from the inner circles I’ve worked on for the last 33 years of my life, disbanded from my family, egged and ridiculed anywhere I drove. But that’s not what pushed me over the line. One day it snowed, I took the CVT out and it was the lamest thing I drove since old man winter. I jumped into angs 3.0 and thought, how the fuck am stuck with the CVT. After many failed attempts to try and switch the cars without ang knowing, it became apparent that I was stuck with the CVT for the winter… well unless I found something else.
Enter the relentless Kijijijiji searching. No different from any other day really. This unit came up for 2k. It was manged a bit, but it was 6spd and had some work recently done to it. 6spd is quite desirable, and usually commands a premium, but I’m sure people saw the quarter panel and kept looking. I asked a question one week, and got no response. I then sent a message, ”take 1k?” after about a week later he said come take it. I had the Huff do a 402 point inspection on it, as I was out of town, and once he deemed the roof rails to be acceptable, he locked it in for me with a deposit. Drove it home on the weekend from Qc without any issues and started tearing into it.
Hopefully I can bring this unit up to par quick enough for the winter season, but if not, it'll still be a solid car to beat around in the summer. Not sure what the plans are for the CVT, maybe sell it, or keep it in the family as a B car. nothings really wrong with it other than a leaky transmission seal. But who doesnt have that?
