Totally agree with you man. In a strange way I like the car, love the mpg's, its been reliable since the overhaul, its just beat. I could DIY and add some anti-theft to it, kill switch, The Club, etc. And I'd kinda like the challenge of taking on the thiefs. However the car is pretty ratty looking, the rear glass leaks onto rear seats, interior is pretty beat, the wife hates riding in it, and we have a kid on the way... By the time I sink $300 into fixing what they broke/stole, and another couple hundred in anti-theft, I still have a tired rusty beater car. I've liked the early 00's Jetta TDIs for a long time, this might be my opportunity to get a respectable car and still get 40-50 mpg.

Not really sure what I'll do...
