    Thread: You might be a dubber if...

    1. 10-28-2005 01:05 PM #101
      AHHH gltuner... that rings true. A week or so ago we went to a different dealer than mine (they know what they're talking about, at the very least) to look at New Jettas for a friend... (my friends like having me along so they can ask me stupid stuff about the cars, I guess.) The salesdude had NO IDEA what he was talking about when we took out a GLI, and I spent the entire time going over features and specs and stuff with her cuz she wanted to know. At the end of the ride he turns to me and goes "Which dealer are you from and why isn't she just buying the car from YOU?"
      I giggled.

      You know you're a dubber when:
      - Your gas pedal breaks numerous times (yes, he pedal itself, not the cable)
      - Your car suddenly runs like sh** , so at the next stop, you get out and know exactly where to go to fix the problem (my wife's case, vacuum hose)
      - Half of your VW is held together with electrical tape, and no one can tell!

      Is it a bad thing that all of these apply to me?

      ...EVERYONE hears the dashboard rattle but you...
      ...you hear noises, clinks, and rattles in your car but you don't get worried. You do get worried if you hear those same types of sounds in other cars
      ...You've experienced the VW phenomenon of the "care fixing itself"

      You might be a dubber if, at night driving down a dark street or highway, you can look in your rear view mirror, and tell right away just by the headlights that there's a VW behind you, and can probably tell which MK generation it is.

      even better, at night you see mk4 golf headlights in your mirror. and
      without seeing it in the light or even a sideview, you realize it is a mk3
      with mk4 headlights and you never owned a mk3.!!!
      keep 'em coming dubqueen, who am i to judge but damn, very very
      impressive. come on we need more women like this.
      1) the first time you drove a vr6 was the first time you felt like there is a god.

      [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Right on. As much as I don't like MKIII's, I have to admit, driving the first MKIII VR6 was VERY COOL. The only thing that killed the ride for me was when I tried to take the highway exit ramp the same way I am used to in my MKII.

      ONLY a dubber will park his/her car and as they walk away, they ALWAYS, without fail, turn around to look at the car one last time before going inside. You know you do it...

      Soooo true. Sometimes more than once

      you know your a dubber when you tell your boss in january that you need off july 15,16, & 17th and september 23-25th...... Forever

      WRX STi owners try to race you in traffic on the highway.< and lose because they think fast is all it takes not skill.
      You laugh at Hybrid owners because your TDI gets the same epa mileage with more power and no $7,000 100,000 mile battery replacement service
      You have your own copy of ETKA in printed form (from faxes from the stealership)
      :::edit:::
      you might be a dubber if...
      You post the first part of this at work then have something to add when you get home...
      you might be a dubber if...
      You almost get nailed doing 100 in a 55 by the State Trooper in the big white marked GMC Yukon ahead of you because you are looking at the MKIV Silver Jetta just like yours in the lane next to you. (Only as you pass it hits you WHY he is waving frantically at you.)
      Much love to the MKIV GLS 1.8T Jetta Westbound on 90 at Bloomingdale Rd. 30 minutes ago.

      HAHA, that is AWESOME.
      You might be a dubber if.... when you see an MkV Jetta in front of you (in white, incidentally) you speed FRANTICALLY, weaving in and out of traffic, to catch up, pull up next to him, grin toothily and do the dub wave, and travel happily next to him for the next... oh, 10 miles. Even though your exit was six miles back.

    13. 11-04-2005 01:51 AM #113
      YOU! YES YOU might be a dubber if you look at an audi as your next non VW car.

      You might be a dubber if....
      1. Whenever you get out of your Mark IV you check to make sure you haven't ripped part of your front end off... especially if your wife has driven your car lately.
      2. You cringe whenever you see another Mark IV whose owner has not been as careful and has half their front end dragging the ground!

    15. 11-04-2005 02:02 PM #115
      this happend to me just now.
      you take someone for a ride in your car, they say "whats that noise?" you tell them, "Exhaust rattle, Fuel Pump and Seat belt thing" then you explain the rest of the noises when your driving.

      You might be a dubber if:
      <--1.You're covered in tattoos but your first one was a big 'ol VW on your arm
      <--2.Your house is covered with old VW ads from the 50's, 60's, and water-cooleds, and VW toys both antique and new are everywhere.
      <--3.You can recognize the sound of both a vr6 and an air-cooled coming way before you see them.
      <--4.Your wife and you are seriously considering "Karmann" for your unborn daughter's name.
      I have more, but gotta go!

      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 your a guy and know that the cabby u own is fast.
      My friend changed his mind about bitching about the cabby after.
      1. We ended up getting alot of compiments from ladies around town saying nice car and wow. I ended up getting a hug from some girl who thought i was hot and had a hot car.
      2. We hit undisclosed speeds at a rate of acceleration faster than his pos bertta 3.1L

      AHHH Tornado! You know what? That actually happened to me last week. I was shocked. I was like, "Yea, that's an MK4 behind me." But when it passed me, I was like, "Wait...what the...wait...I could've sworn...I know I wasn't wrong...I did see an MK4 grill, didn't I?" I was confused out of my @ss until my mechanic said, "Calm down, baby, you're not crazy, it was probably just a modification you've never seen before." That was ill, though!!! I'm glad you pointed that out...
      the only car i will ever own besides a dub will be an audi

      What about the other day when I was almost t-boned by an Acura doing like 50 down the Ave? He had to slam on his brakes and come to a screeching hault, and when he stopped, his front end was about an inch away from my driver-side door- got hit in the face by the smoke from his wheels and everything, and what do you think the first thing that came to my mind was? "WHEW, THAT WOULD'VE BEEN THE END OF MY DUB, FOR REAL!!!" It was only later when I was telling somebody what happened when they was like, "Weren't you worried about your own life?", and I said, "Yea, I guess I could've been hurt, too." I tell you, people think I'm absolutely crazy when it comes to my Dub, but I'm a Dub Queen- always have been, always will be (as I stand up and put my hand on my heart to sing the VW Anthom).

      - you have an MKII that has the top of the line Viper Alarm System(the one with a remote paging unit), a club for the steering wheel, full coverage insurance with no deductible, a part time security company that watches your garage for you on their patrols, a full size custom water proof car cover that cost over 400 dollars, you lock the car turn on the alarm and put on the car cover whenever the car is in the garage for more than 2 hours, and you always have to park somewhere where you can see your car (if you can't see the car, you come out of whatever building you are in every 5 minutes to make sure it's still there or no one has messed with it).
      - Your ex recommends "intervention" for your addiction, and when you refuse help, she dumps you. You see that as a blessing because now you have more than enough time on your hands to finish your projects
