Hey, just made the change from a 2003 B6 Audi A4 Avant. It was a sweet ride but was sucking me dry in maintenance costs. I just imported an 06 WRX wagon from Texas, as they are impossible to find here in UT.
Not sure what the plans are for this car are right now. It's getting tint next week and springs probably in a few weeks. I see stage 2 in the near future.
I'm also into VW's as well. I have 1983 Mk1 GTI that is my official "project" car. It only gets driven in the summer. I did a 16V swap with Megasquirt standalone engine management.
I do all my own wrenching and am looking forward to something new!
