      My brother and sister go there. My brother and I are building a 'project GTi' that should be on the street soon, I hope. Right now he drives a red loud miata with some mods and ssr wheels. It's pretty quick, you've probably seen or heard it before. My sister has a 'Meek-tuned' white cabriolet.

      Sweet, i was hoping to start a local VW group here. So far i've only met one other VW that's on vortex and goes to purdue. I'm pretty happy with the thermal. it isn't ricey loud which was what i was trying to avoid. With the CAI it sounds pretty tough. I have a pretty loud blow off sound now that i have a CAI. Waiting on a downpipe. hoping that'll open her up a lil more and give her a meaner sound to boot.

      How do you like the Carbonio? How much did you spend? No chip yet? Our GTi is rough. Wait til you see it. Gutted. No dash nothing. It should be quick. I think it'll weigh about 1700 and have about 130-135 horse. Email me your number and I'll give it to my brother.

      i tried to get the APR chip, but when i got there he said that he didn't have my ECu code for my 2003. he said that he'd call me in 3 weeks to update me. it's been 2 weeks, still waiting. love the carbonio, but i got it from them so i'm sure i paid to much. I did get a killer blow off sound though so it was worth it.

      Heck no! Early game. Not very competitive. As a fan, I hate it when div 1A plays a div 1AA team.

      theres got to be more of us here, anyway to spread the word? i was thinking sticking flyers under the wipers of campus vw's

      That's the best idea yes...but I'm afraid there's not many avid dubbers there. I looked...I saw 2...and that was all. If you did start a club, you're looking at about 5 people....at which point you're then left with some smalllll gatherings.. Maybe if you checked up on RTW or if there's any other import enthusiast clubs....just 'cause you have dubs doesn't mean you need your own club.

      i've seen way more than 2 VW's on campus. There are about as many VW's on campus as there are Honda's. This club could be really big if we push for it. I'm sure we can get people to join. I know off at least 5 including myself that would join now and i've seen at least 10 kids with MKIV's on campus that look like they are really into their VW's.

      just because they go to college and drive VWs doesn't mean they want to be apart of a "club"
