Ever think about turning down the tip of the exhaust so water can't accidentally drip or get blown in?

Peek-a-boo, I see you hiding behind the tree; I see a buggy too! :lol:

That's awesome. That's kind of how I got into VW in the first place. Just out of high school (a looong time ago) I went to Arizona. While I was there I went to the drag strip and there was a guy there with a pink with white polka dots bug. He lined up with these cocky guys with a hopped up Viper. Smoked 'em bad! They loaded that viper up on the trailer and left! So awesome! Had to have one after that!!
