Looking good guys AND gals!
Wish I could've came out and took some pics/video. Looks like it was a really good turn out.
@Jason: What was the rig on top of your car for? pics or video footage? Cant wait to see what can be done using one of those set ups. I was planning on picking up a kit. But I need to learn more bout it first.

AWESOME TURN OUT! Nice to meet some new people and see familiar faces and friends! Extra special thanks to Tyler for all the time he spent setting up for photos, cannot wait to see the final results!
Jeremy...extra rad photos sir!
Mark...I know you're working on photos too!
Shawn...thanks for "organizing" this event.
I'm in for the Fry's meet!
Thanks Mark for getting us the perfect photo spot! I'd love to go back there sometime and do some individual shots with some people.
A couple of us stayed late to test some stuff and get some individual shots. Thanks to Luis, Al and Marble for helping! I'll have more group ones up later. Here's a couple that I cleaned up today.
Not much to note as modified, but I love her all the same. I have my mind set on some changes, but they yet to be applied.
HPA Core Interlock
DIY Filled & coated grill
I can list a couple things, but he can give you a much longer list with better details. Much of the love he has given his car is not noticeable at first glance, but it is coming along nicely.

I am really on the edge with my .:R. Everyday I struggle to keep my love for it. I'm a go fast guy at heart, and the .:R will never do it for me without some serious coin. My wife doesn't mind keeping it while I get myself a toy, but she really wants an Audi or BMW so I don't want her to settle. I may end up trading it in for a GTI or TDI, even a used Audi or something.
So far I have:
Modified VF intake
Catless - Custom 3in exhaust
Giac ECU software
If I do decide to keep it, it will be staying NA for sure.
Damn MAF....... Blew it up leaving fry's, in half. Just great..... One more weak link... stand alone here we come.
Cop was cool , tho he dug the car n let me get it going NP.. So guess there's a few good ones out there...
Funny it died.. Instantly.
What else are you looking at? Personally I'd get HF cats and a proper tune. Both catless and GIAC are dyne proven to be no bueno.
Do you track the car? If you want better track time then go Shawns route. If you just want go fast then do a basic turbo or by a proper car (more expensive than turbo!).
Ok so wow lots going on here! I love it! Yesterday was spent entirely with Lauren's brother at Enchanted Rock so I didn't have time to do any photo stuff since we were still using the camera.
I promise to post up everything today. I'll do my best to eliminate any fuzzy shots not worthy but everything will be in a flickr set that everybody will be able to access too. I can even setup drop box for anybody wanting direct access to the picture files. Camera is still in use this morning by Lauren so look this afternoon for them.
THANK YOU ALL FOR COMING OUT TO SHAWN'S GTG!!!!!!
I'm sorry we got disconnected at the beginning, but in the end we all made it!!!!
....and Jason let it be known your car is my desktop wallpaper until further hotness trumps that shot. It will be a while i think

If I do keep it, my plans are:
UM DSG software
UM E85 Engine software
Forge catted downpipes and resonated catback
Then try to enjoy for what it is; a limited edition car.
I don't track it, but I'd like to. I don't plan to drop the coin for a turbo kit cause let's face it, it is a big chunk of change for hardly any faster times.
I guess I'll see what happens after I get myself a fun daily driver. See if the wife still wants to keep the car. I'm looking at something Domestic or Japanese.
Pictures are uploading very slowly ...... internet today in my area is crap so just be patient and take 2 doses of "refresh" or "F5" when viewing the stream. Time permitting i'll put them into their own set.
PM me your drop box account info and i'll be happy to share as many pics as I can at once.
Jason - the low shot came out great man. It should be up soon so you can see it yourself.
Seriously sweet photos! IT is amazing what a camera and cars can do!! I love it.. I'm glad you guys know how to work the camera, Mark, and to the others I may have not met. Thanks so much!
Marble you are right, I should have stayed later. RJ was itching to take his car out on the road upon my return and our baby sitter a.k.a. mother-in-law is out in vacation for the week or we would have both be out (I would have had to drag him).. yes, next time. I want him to make a debut for the VR for sure!
cheers for nice weather, friends, cameras, and euro goodness
oh yea and duh.. Mandi's car is rocking on the new kicks!! so glad the wait is over for you you!
DON'T BUY FROM HGB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
