      We are there for the mutual interest in cars, but I needed a flashlight to see anyone's ride. Also, hard to see dogs, kids, engine bays and various other notables.
      2. It is confined. Smaller lot with smaller spaces and strange curbs that allow people (such as my wife) to hit unseen objects. Just not convenient.
      3. Other patrons. This location is far from being empty when we arrive. The parking-lot was over half full upon arrival.
      4. The highway. Does the constant drone and whooshing of cars from the access road and highway not annoy anyone else? It wasn't quiet at Rosa's or Market Hieghts, but it wasn't that bad.
      5. The Food. Expensive and slow. Just a poor experience all together. (I am not going to go into a critique, I'll stop there). Also, limited accessible options close by.

      I am glad we tried a different location and the offer by the management is appreciated. I just don't like this venue as a weekly spot. I would be happy to use it as an occasional place, but that is as far as it goes for me.

      This is, of coarse, one opinion out of a multitude of attendees. I am interested in hearing others.
      I have to say it was a nice change of pace from the usual spot but I also agree with chance on everything stated above.

      Chance, i didnt feel like it was all that great either.
      I like the food there though, but it was a bit much with all the cars driving by on the highway.
      i was anticipating that the parking lot would have more light. and the parking was quite limited. I mean i got a decent spot, but it didnt really spark my appeal.


      I will talk to John about the experience. Hes still interested in showing up to the meets. Maybe a once a month thing just to mix it up.

      the Food is actually quite good, but you are right, it is expensive.

      the car show is still on for next week. So everyone needs to show up at least 30 mins early so we can monopolize the parking.

      i always brag that my kids know more about the VW than most of the guys who show up.

      cause its usually true.

      the kids should start their own group.

      As a table, our food experience was poor, and pricey doesn't describe it.

      Me & wife split: burger, fries & shake
      Son: plain french fries, shake
      Bill - $26.00. Seriously?

      French fries were burnt and I had to track down someone in order to pay the bill.

      Two reasons I probably won't be back: Billy bob's & Black Megs

      Regardless, I will be there to support the car show.

      I almost went the other day based on a suggestion from Google when I was leaving the hospital. I'll take head to a second suggestion from a reliable source. I'll try them next time i'm in cove.

      Hello 'Gents (since I'm pretty sure I'm the only lady...), the GLI is at a WA dealership and no longer under our ownership. It was giving us small issues that could potentially lead to a huge issue when Brian would be deployed, so we traded it for a 2011 Jetta TDI. It's weird not being in a fun car, but the fuel mileage is awesome. And back in July Brian traded his GTI for an A4 with a new engine and bigger turbo but that will be sold soon due to him leaving. Just wanted to pop in, say hello, and give you an update

      -Sam

      Tell Brian he needs to get his **** together and start flying instead of playing Army!

      I have this sneaky suspicion I'll be up in WA this time next year. Only because i have bad luck, it rains there, and there probably aren't many tracks. Have y'all heard from Tom?

      He's working on it...his unit up here is flippin' ghey but he's done all the stuff he has to do, just waiting for other people. And if you do, awesome just let us know. Tom messaged me back at the end of July and asked if we go to meets, but I don't know of any and haven't heard from him since.

      Good to hear from you guys. The TDI is no speed demon, but the other benefits still bring out some love. My wife is rocking a Passat TDI now and she is loving it.

      I bounced a few messages back an forth with Tom after he landed up there, but I haven't heard from him in about two months, either.

      Washinton is awesome. I loved that place.

      yeah. this thursday I'm bringing an egg and having them build me a 1 pound burger w/ egg so that my picture can be up on the wall, but I probably won't be going back there.. The burger was good, but the service was lacking as you said and those fries were horrible. They actually sell a milk shake with pieces of candy that clog up the straw so that you can't drink it.

      I'm pretty sure the reprogramming instructions are out there on google. I replaced my key system with a remote start that had it's own fob and tied it into the alarm. But I normally do something different.

      Chance, I agree that Cheeburger Cheeburger was horrible. I do not want to return, even this Thursday.

      Programming a key fob for most german cars

      Place key in driver door/pass side if no key hole.
      Turn and hold to lock position.
      Press lock on key fob multiple times which should lock the car and set the alarm.
      Done.

      If that doesn't work try the same but hold to unlock side.

      apparently for a beetle, you put the key in the trunk, press and hold the lock button and wait. but its still a little messed up. the trunk button does not work on the fob. and to lock the drivers door you must press unlock 4 times then lock, or the driver door will not lock. f@*k it, its easy to just lock and unlock it with the key itself.

      there are a few courses near by, i think that the New Braunfels Track, Harris Hill Track is a short course but lots of fun. SoulSpeed is located nearby? i forgot.


      The temple track is called Little River Dragway, we head there to do drag rips and just hang out. its more of a family time for the guys in the group.

      we roll together, and hang and leave when we want.

      8 bucks to get in with a military id and 10 without, its an additional 10 to race.IIRC.

      im sure there are others around, but im not really too in the know. i never track my car, so im unsure.

      OH

      there is a small auto cross event every month at the whiskey creek parking lot. I heard its lots of fun.

      Apex driving events does most of the track days around here.
      TWS (College station) FAST! bikes do 150 on the back straight.
      MSRC (Cresson)-1.3, 1.7, 3.1 configurations Apex runs regularly there. 1.3 is very technical with a 50ft elevation change, 1.7 is fun cars run CW mostly I've only ran CCW. the 3.1 is the two merged and is a lot of track to cover, mentally taxing.
      MSRH(Houston)- 2.7 I think its a smooth fun course, not sure who runs there.
      ECR (Eagles Canyon) Denton/Decatur, mid speed technical track, lots of elevation change.

      Track days are to be had around here all these tracks are w/in 3hrs. The key is searching local forums and sneaking in with other car groups, EVO, BMW, S2000, PCA, ect.
