    Thread: Asheville-area dubs?

    1. 10-17-2006 09:02 PM #1
      Looking to make contact with some cool people in the area. I'm moving down in February from Chicago. Looking for a nice place to live and a job in IT . I'm really excited about being so close to the Tail!!!

      ...Wish I could make it, but I just found out about it!
      I used to live in Boone, on King st across from the thrift store (up the street from Black Cat). I hear they turned my apartment into some sorority girl hangout. Might be worth a trip back to check it out I worked at peppers for a while, as well as the nissan dealership.

      congrats on the move, asheville is great. its definitely one of those places i would like to move to to stay. absolutely beautiful there. the dragon will be worth the short drive. its about an hour outside knoxville

    8. 10-22-2006 01:31 PM #8
      might have to let u guys know next time i come there w/ the airforce. We go up there all the time. Ur right it is beautiful!!! I know i wont be up there again this year but let u guys know when im going up there next year. Maybe u guys can show me the hot spots and the dub scene there!

      Definitely. I'm always up for a cruise, esp. if the weather's nice! (and sometimes when it's not too)

      Asheville is so nice, if the job situation was better I'd be there in a minute. Congrats on the move, I think it will make a nice change from Chicago, both fantastic cities in differnet ways. Good luck to you!

      Nice 20th... should be pretty easy to spot since itll stand out from the backdrop of completely stock, dirty mkIVs rolling around here.

      That would be a helluva coincidence if he isn't talking about you. Hehe
      And as far as being off topic, theres only three of us on this thread so I think we can talk about whatever the hell we want.
      I'm new to dubs so I don't know what GLI seats look like, but nice score anyway.
      I want new seats for my bucket but can't decide what route to go. Race/Street
      How 'bout posting some pics up of the GLI seats in your Jetta??

      To be honest with you, I'm not really sure because I haven't had the pleasure to meet you.
      I asked my friend that works at this wheel alignment place on Haywood Road about a black nice looking jetta that I saw parked early last week and he told me about the GLI seats swap

      Nice pics....definitely super clean ride.
      Those seats are dope.
      Too bad I just blew my wad on turbo, but I guess you can't have it all.
      How was the install on those seats??? Did you have to fabricate mounts???

      thanks man. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] Im actually not sure about what was involved in the install. The guy that put the seats in for me said it was tough though... makes me glad that i didnt try to do it myself like i had originally planned.

      I haven't done a seats swap myself, but a don't think the seats swap was that though, as fares I know, all the mkIVs GLI and the GL or regular Jetta share the same seats bolt pattern configuration, even the GTIs, that way VW can make things easier at the assemble line.
      as I said before I haven't task one myself so what richard told ben may be true, I'm gonna have to ask him later next week
      looking good ben, you're going to love the recaros [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      You guys talkin' bout the fellers down at Jan Davis Tires???? Good guys, I've bought a ton of tires from them.
      How much did those seats run you???? If you don't mind me asking. Just ballpark it.
