Updates are cut and paste from another forum...
So a friend mentions that he needs a cheap wagon for commuting/hauling crap and asks me to find him a deal like I got on my wagon. I start searching craigslist and find a local one at a decent price and go check it out. The car is a mint white 5 speed 2010 that's way cleaner than mine. Immediately the wheels start turning and long story short, I work out a deal to sell my blue one to my buddy and I buy the white one. Here's where it gets really stupid, I'm now in the middle of a two-way swap. The R swap is coming out of the blue into the white one and the blue one will be a stock 5 speed (previously automatic). I've done many swaps but never from car to car, so this should be interesting. It's also funny that this will be the first and second Golf R swapped sportwagen in the world, I think.
I'll post a a bunch of pics as I go along, for anyone interested in my stupidity.
I'm also keeping track of all my time just to get an idea of how much time I'm wasting.
Here it is in it's minty glory
