I understand how the OP feels. It is a VW show/weekend; not a NOPI weekend. I even saw a 240 parked on the show grounds.
But creating another bitch thread in the sea of bitch threads in this forum will not help.
Eventually another show will take H2O's spotlite as "the show" to go to in the year. Until then, stop crying. If you don't like it, don't go next year. Not a difficult concept.
I get that a ton of people want an all-VW H2Oi, and others don't care, but using the excuse, "It's all been done, everything is so similar," is stupid. Want to stand out? Do something insane. K-series Honda motor in a mk2, RWD swap, etc. There's plenty out there that hasn't been done to death. Cool things too. But people seem scared to either do something not Vortex approved, or to do something requiring more than a Craftsman 150 piece tool kit.
PSU, I like your posts, and I kinda dig your car, but rather than give up on it and go elsewhere, have you considered other directions to take the .:R? Turbo, shaved, tucked, bespoke interior, etc. All options worth looking into. If you're over the car, then it's whatever, but I'm just saying there are plenty of directions it could go and stand out and be different.
The people, the cars, & the friendships are what make up the "scene." Not the fourms, nor the show's or the trophy's. Just knowing that they will go out of their way to give you a helping hand no matter the reason, is golden. People will come and go from the scene, but the true ones have and will always be there after the scene has long gone.
You know how many PMs I get about what yellow bulbs I run or where I got a first aid kit? Of course I don't consider Nokya bulbs a modification, but I do get tired of answering the same PM over and over again.
Simply there to help other people out.
Park my car beside a stock R32 and examine the engine bays and then come and talk to me.
Countless hours have gone into cleaning the bay up all the while keeping it simple and OEM looking in the process.
I bet my car has seen more use than you could dream of. When's the last time you drove 700+ miles just to drive some back roads with other enthusiasts?
That's the whole purpose of my car.
You guys can come at me all day.
You get out what you put in. Act stupid and cocky, and I'll return the favor.
If you don't like the way h2o is changing nobody is making you come, just go to local shows. Never had any issues with the non vag, except some BMW drivers but they're BMW drivers you expect that from them. I enjoyed seeing the different makes that look a lot better then most of the vws there, if you wanna see just vws stay home and surf vwvortex all day you'd see the same cars if h2o was strictly vw and save money. Let em be man. We have our gtg's down there and the show that's vw, why do we need coastal highway too?
This is the kind of elitist douchebaggery that got me to walk away from the "VW crowd" back in the 90's. It's really sad that people feel the need to say that other cars don't belong coming to a VW show. So, if I like VWs, but drive something else, I can't come appreciate other people's Dubs? Really????
I have zero brand loyalty - I can appreciate every marque and the love that people put into them. I've always been a VW guy in my soul (I've had 7 of them), but I can appreciate everything. I am a REAL car guy. At the end of the day, I don't give a **** if you rolled in driving a bone-stock '88 Hyundai Excel or a poked & stretched & JDM'ed '79 Dodge Colt, I'll still throw back a beer with you so long as you're not a douchebag.

Personally I would rather have more non VAG cars down there than the new wave of VAG cars that are driven by disrespectful types and thieves. Just because they drive a non VAG car doesn't mean they don't appreciate what the weekend is all about. It isn't as if that we were over run by a bunch of cut springed fart can sounding outcast cars. Many of them were very well done and many of their owners were some of the nicest people I met all weekend. In a way it is almost a complement that they want to share the weekend down there with us. Just my opinion.
