      Dude, it's been 15 degrees since you've been here. We're all old farts. Cold weather doesn't agree with us. Give it time.

      Where's a good place to get a wheel balanced properly in Columbia?
      I rotated my tires (new tires and VW Classix wheels as of 5,000 miles ago) and suddenly have a noticeable vibration up front.. :/
      EDIT - just went down to A/T on Two Notch. Now they are good as new. Can't believe how far off one of them was. (originally done at Tire Kingdom)

      Chris (?) at A/T on Two Notch is the man! He did my springs and alignment right before Christmas and I couldn't be happier. Glad you got everything sorted...

      Took one of our Roccos' to Chris after Chad suggested his shop and we won't take our cars to any other shop. Too many headaches to deal with taking it to other places in town. Besides if the Porsche guys take all their cars there why not us Vdubbers too.

      there is a pull-a-part in charleston...couple of months they had a mk4 listed on craigslist.you should give it a try...or car-parts.com

      There is one in the pull-a-part in Columbia but it has been cruelly raped. Why can't guys and gals take what they want from a car and not break up other good pieces that someone else may need?

      Yes he was nice, did the work while I went to lunch, and best of all did it right! I will be taking my car back there in the future for sure.

      Can "strong scene" and "short while" be used in the same sentence without sounding utterly ridiculous?
      It wouldn't appear so

      Fair enuf, it's a long story that nobody wants to go into I'm sure. We've all moved on to better things so to say

      Let's put it this way, rob. There was a better vw scene at my last base and they didn't even have vws in japan.

      Again, give it time.

      Time? You mean waiting for spring/summer time for a meet consisting of 3 cars?
      Pass.

    19. 01-22-2010 07:25 AM #369
      Do some work? Build something? I am. On my car, you know, where it actually matters. I went to the meet that was a few weeks ago. Great turn out. Let me waste my time organizing a meet that no one goes to because it's too cold. I'm not bitching, I'm only pointing out the obvious

    20. 01-22-2010 08:08 AM #370
      people bitching and crying and causing drama is what kills gtg's around here to start with, now we have more of it. I seriously thought that with a few more new people coming that the numbers would swell a little and get something going again. In all honesty, this is Columbia SC and there are no more than 20-30 VW people here regularly, and every once in a while we get people that come here for school or military that PCS's into the area. There is no scene here, we have an annual party every year and that's about it. If anyone truly thinks they are going to come in here and create a scene without the help of the guys that have been here, well, your just retarded. You need numbers, masses, to create a scene and this area just doesn't have it. The most you will get in this area is a small gtg. Take it or leave it, but by all means QUIT ****ING CRYING ABOUT IT.

      Nope. Nobody ever shows up at GTGs in Columbia. Until you do the leg work to get something put together, don't preach. It's not an easy thing to do here if you want it done right and want it to be successful. (Btw, that's only about half the cars in attendance in that pic)

      Well said. One of these days I'll make it to a GTG. Until then, no reason to derail this thread into the ground.
