    Thread: You might be a dubber if...

    1. 09-26-2005 05:42 PM #1
      Hey this topic was posted a while ago and I went looking for it but had no luck. So if we could get a new one going, I'll definitely save it this time.

      Let me, get it started:
      You know you're a dubber when:
      1. Only you know how to open up the car doors of your VW.
      2. You are the only one allowed to drive your VW.
      3. You have more than 1 VW because you like them that much and just in case one doesn't start, you can try another one.

      4. only you know how to adjust your seats

    3. 09-26-2005 06:37 PM #3
      if it's older(mk1&mk2), only you know how to operate the sloppy shifter.

      Top ten signs that you're a dubber...

      10) Instead of pajama's with Superman pasted on the front, you have the VW logo.

      9) Everytime you see a modded VW pass by, you almost rearend the person in front of you.

      8) You spend more time on vwvortex.com than you do sleeping.

      7) Your idea of a date is to go to your local VW dealer to look around the lot.

      6) Your stack of reading material in the bathroom consists of VW related magazines.

      5) You've considered selling a kidney to pay for a coilover kit.

      4) Your dealer calls you instead of VW America to get the correct specifications on a VW.

      3) Your engine compartment is cleaner than most hospital operating rooms.

      2) you decorate your christmas tree with broken window regulators.

      and the number one sign that you're a dubber is that you actually took the time to read this list to see what applies to you!

      Your alarm doesn't honk when you lock it with the key fob because there are other passengers in your car. car= jealous??

      You park far away from other cars, your sunroof is tilted when parked.

      You are in the service dept frequently and tell ur service advisors that this is your 2nd home.

      You have 4 vws...
      - 1 daily driver
      - 1 show car
      - 1 rolling chassis
      - 1 rust bucket for parts or dreams

      4. Dealerships mistake you for Sales Reps.
      5. Your looking to buy a VW, but instead of incentives your offered a job.

      when you can hear the sound of a vr6 from a mile away
      when you have 3 or more vws in front of your house
      when the local vw recycler is your best friend and visit it more then you visite your grandma

      might be a dubber if:

      your cant help driving your showcar EVERY day

      you think its the coolest thing when you see another vw on the road

      you park next to the other vw at the end of the parking lot

      youd rather listen to the engine than the radio

      one of your cars is always in the shop for upgrades

      youd be willing to drive a bus

      you find reasons to have to drive some where.

      you've laugh yourself in to tears cause you connected with a vw commercials.

      you laugh out loud about a vw commercial you've seen months ago.

      You slow down to see the reflextion of yourself driving your VW. (store windows, other cars, etc.)

      You follow other VWs to get a idea of what your VW looks like while driving on the road.

      You keep loging back on, cause you keep thinking of,"You might be a dubber..." jokes.

    16. 09-29-2005 03:29 AM #16
      you might be a dubber if you see a person also driving a vw wave at you and you know exactly what he means.

      you might be a dubber if you park the farthest from the mall where there are no cars so as to not risk someone damaging your car's paint.

      you might be a dubber if even a run of the mill golf get your attention.

      you think a CEL adds character to your cluster...

      you know what "pinch, don't pull" means (MKII owners chime in)...

      your home "library" consists of Bentley's, owners manuals from every Dub you've ever owned, and a binder of repair receipts for MAF's, Coilpacks, and window regulators...

      you use the Vortex as your primary IM service....

      You might be a 'dubber if you note how many MK1's, MK2's etc., are rolling around your town.

      You might be a 'dubber if you see a VW on the road, and come home to see if they're a member of the VWvortex forums.

      You might be a 'dubber if you'll park your brand new $45k ride anywhere, but the 17 year old dub goes to the back of the lot.

      You might be an old school 'dubber if you'll actually put $10,000 into a car you paid $500 for.

      You might be a (Cabby) 'dubber if you wait until the rain is leaving welts on your body before you'll actually pull over to put the top up.

      You might be a (Cabby) 'dubber if you feel embarrassed and ashamed to be caught driving with your top up by a fellow Cabby driver.

      #7 - heh....thanks for the idea!

      #4 - I think he was talking about YOU Kammy!

      ....and now I'm off to look around the VW dealer to find a date for the concert in Spokane this weekend.

      You might be a 'dubber if:

      You go through a five minute lecture about where things are in your car that are of use. i.e. where the door handle is, that there's a lap belt, how to adjust the seat etc.

      or

      If fellow co-workers are now concerned about the state of your car.

      or

      If fellow co-workers refuse to ride with you to get coffee because your suspension is "too stiff" and they ended up wearing some.

      Or in an mk3, only you can put the car in reverse or open the hatch.

      Also, every passenger you've ever had comments on your door chime (Euro Police!)

      You ignore the VR6 and 1.8T jettas, but drool over a rusted out rabbit diesel

      You keep blipping your throttle at the light, just to hear your vr6 exhaust burble a bit

      you always back your car into the far-off spot, easy to find - only car with a Europlate!

      Low fluids don't concern you, but those door dings ...

      You'll talk crap about yourself all day, but the second someone says something about your car ...

      You know your a (mk3) dubber when:

      You can tell if the car is OBD-I or OBD-II by its physical characteristics

      people call your car color "champagne" or "beige" or "tan" and you correct them on the proper term, "suede silver."

      You know your a dubber when:

      you have some form of VW as your computer wallpaper in at least one location.

      you have half a dozen or more "backup" wallpapers just in case you get bored of the current, but don't change the current one ever.

      you think others are as well, they just don't know it yet

      you convince your significant other, with little persuasion, to sell their car for another VW
      ^^true story, girlfriend traded in her honda for a mkIV 1.8t GTI^^

      the purchase of your new VW convinces your significant other that he/she too is a dubber

      If you go out of the way, even if it makes you late, to roll with another VW.

      When you're the only guy in the car checking out the Rabbit vs the new corvette.

      When you can tell someone the engine and trim of a VW from 30 feet away.

      When you go to the dealership, the only person that leaves with knowing something new is the sales-man.
