      right now tentative plans are to head to Quaker Steak & Lube for some wings/food/beers, and some photos, then head back to my house for a little after party!
      find us at the show for details! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Yesterday while driving in the rain, the nut that holds the wiper motor arm in place loosened up on me. Luckily, I only had to make it from Harbison to my house. Even with rain-x, a mk4 windshield sucks in the rain without functional wipers at anything less than interstate speeds. I get to tear into it tonight and tighten everything back up. Of course, that gives me an excuse to pull the ECU and reflash the chip with a different setup. Since the stock program doesn't get along with the N75 J-valve, I'm going to ditch it in favor of the 100-octane race gas program.

      Bummer. Too late to take time off work Sunday to go for me. Otherwise, I'd be all over those. Last time I saw Metallica live they were touring with Guns N' Roses!

      Got lucky and they actually played. Was in New Orleans. Killer show. James Hetfield was on Bourbon Street after the show piss drunk. Cool guy though. Nothing like you would expect him to be.

      And you think the bible belt of the south was any more receptive to musicians who would dare drop the F-bomb on an album? I was a bit of a rebellious youth, so I would have gone no matter what!

      do we have a local source for parts or are we still limited to the i-net or mail order? I'm just curious. I'm gonna need wheel bolts soon.

      Nothing available locally. You're stuck with online vendors for those unless someone has an extra set.

      the scr region puts on an event about once a month. They ran the arrive and drive autox saturday at BMW, and than a regular points event sunday in the same place.
      I try to get out to an event if I can, there are many people in this area who regularly participate and dedicate cars to it. Not so much in the vw community though. I do recall a very quick rabbit there running regularly.

      pm me your # and I will text you my wifey's # as I am in VA till december, your welcome to grab them and try em... they should work, the backs almost positive, the fronts may be a bit too long, worst case you will get half the bolts you need, half price brand new!
