      This thread has been started to alleviate some of the repeat questions being asked and to create a current resource for all in the New England forum. Thank you to notquiteanewbie for putting together the info.


    2. Alignment Shops
    3. Car Audio
    4. Dealerships
    5. Detailers
    6. Gas Pricing
    7. Race Gas Sources
    8. Junkyards/Parts
    9. Paint & Body Shops
    10. Powder Coating
    11. Window Tint
    12. Upholstery/Interior Work
    13. VAG COM Locators
    14. Please use this to find someone with a VAG COM to help you rather than posting in the forum. Also, try posting in your local GTG thread as chances are someone who attends will have one. Please do not post a new thread in the New England forum as a substitute for either of these methods, as it will be locked or removed in most instances.

    15. Wheel and Tire
    16. Wheel Repair
    17. Dynos

      Established Club/GTG threads
      club.broke.status, Roll Call
      Official Millbury, MA Red Robin GTG
      Offical NEK thread/Bennigans GTG Thread
      NSI - Monthly Beverly Acapulco's GTG
      Club Grim Water / Official Thread
      Red Robin GTG : Plymouth MA
      Manchester NH GTG
      Boston Euro Unit Thread
      RI GTG etc Thread
      Seacoast dub scene GTG Thread


      Finally, a reminder to all:

      Based on the flaming, threats, backtalk, and slurs that have propagated across the tranquil New England forums the following rules have become necessary. They are applicable to ALL club chit chat/GTG threads:

      1. each club or group may create one (1) thread that covers their club activities (GTGs, cruises, "chit chat"). Everything related to your club or GTG stays in that thread. In the rare case that a club is sponsoring a fundraiser or major event (a car show like Broke Down as example) then a separate thread for that subject may be started with prior approval from a moderator.

      2. if we see anything that goes against the Forum user agreement/rules, you will lose the thread (this includes but is not limited to porn)

      3. if any illegal activity (ie- illegal file sharing, drugs, street racing, etc) is posted, you will lose the thread

      4. if any threats or deliberate flames of other readers/clubs are posted you will lose the thread

      5. if posts are made to deliberately cause trouble and disrupt a another club/GTG thread they will be deleted without warning

      6. if you use an alias to post porn, illegal activities, flame readers, or otherwise start trouble, you will not only lose that name, you will lose your original name and not be welcome back to the community


      these long threads are not easy to police so we expect YOU to police them yourselves by using the Report to Moderator button. The New England mods will be checking these threads more often and removing posts as the the case warrants.


      NOTE THIS POINT!!!

      I would strongly urge the principles AND members of each club/group come to the understanding that disruption of the community will not be tolerated. Remember, if a member of your club/group starts trouble, it reflects on the club/group and will affect the club/group as a whole and threads will be terminated

      VAG-COM / VCDS

      There are resources for locating help with diagnostics, so please don't create threads looking to use a VAG-COM or VCDS. If the locator does not work try posting in your local GTG thread as chances are someone who attends will have one or contacting any of the shops listed in above in this FAQ as they likely have one. Please do not post a new thread in the New England forum as a substitute for either of these methods, as it will be locked or removed in most instances.
