My best friend Chris just got his '04 Jetta GLI and we have discovered that it is a perfect match in a race with my '01 Eclipse GT. Both cars are at stock performance, and a win is almost solely determined by the amount and type of gas in the cars. I have a full tank of unleaded in these videos (can't afford premium quite yet) and chris is running a 1/4 tank of premium. In the 90-pull we get up to 120, and the 1/4 mile we finish at around 100 but continue to like 110. I've hit 145 in my Eclipse and I'm sure it won't be long before chris does the same in the Jetta.

And yeah, trying to record yourself is pretty difficult, actually.
Major props to my uncle for finding this baby and getting him for me.
I am eternallllyyyy gratteffulll.

Anthony Burgos' 2001 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T Full Length Feature
Update 05/15/2012: This video is EXTREMELY old, was filmed entirely by hand. Please check out my new work. This car is still owned by the same person, and is entirely different. It is now manual, yes, manual. Has a k04 turbo with refreshed motor, stepped lipped RS's with brown face, brown engine bay and roof and a entirely redone interior. New video will be coming soon.
Also: most questions about the car and it's parts / details will not be answered. I am not the owner.

Eclipse GT Nitrous vs Cobalt SS Supercharged
Here's the truth guys!!!! the Cobalt is Supercharged and my Eclipse has a Zex Wet Nitrous Kit (50 shots) and the times are so slow cause they were having technical problems with the sensors down at the end of the track.
Test Drive: 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT 5 Speed
This is the first of many test drive videos to come, expect drives of all the vehicles currently on the lot that I have not done already! Here is the 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT with the 5 speed manual transmission. I take it for a drive for the first time to check it over before it goes on the lot after I finished detailing it. Fun little car, much faster than the automatic lol.
