good luck dylan. let me know if you need a hand and i will try to help.
oh and a bit of a disclaimer:
**Just a heads up, the meet will be held at the Park Place parking lot tonight around 830-9. If you decide to do burnouts, rev up your engine, cause trouble etc. Your plate will be written down, and we won't accept you coming back. No need to be dumb people**
Alright boys this weeks pictures! I would like to say we had a great turn out no asshats besides that one random speed3 dicking around but his car was slow we will forgive him
Because I took the pictures one last one of my car Just cause
great shots dan! shoulda came out to jackasstor's after! Next week, maybe...
Glad your car is up and running, sounded good leaving.
These meets happen every Wed nite?
To much negative cogitation with meetings at night hence the harassment from the cops and immature individuals who use the cover of darkness to conduct their juvenile antics.
Personally I prefer the idea of having the meets during the day with light out so the cars can be better seen. Sunday afternoons at the water front on public land would be ideal, if we have nothing to hide then the best way for us as a club is to showcase in the public eye our involvement with the community.
I woulda came out on wed ut was too busy drying off after getting dumped on at soccer...
Is there any peeps here that are handy with the car stereo stuff?? Trying to sort out why the rocco's deck has decided to go dead... wanna try to get things sorted out soon cause as much as hearing the exhaust is cool sometimes i like a little music...
2- I can't make the day, and don't really have any desire to. I just like the idea of getting together midweek, for a coffee, social gathering with car guys, and beer and wings after.
3 - Look forward to seeing you out next time!
I'm new to the Barrie area. 2 months ago I moved from Mississauga to Innisfil. I commute daily to work in Mississauga though, so about 1000kms a week of driving. My reliable and fuel efficient Toyota Echo was decent but I needed better gas mileage so I only had one choice...to buy a TDI.
Last week I found one on Auto Trader from a private seller. Bought it, and it drove fine for a week, and then all of a suddent a few days ago while commuting, to work it overheated. Took it to the Mississauga VW dealer and it's a water pump issue. They want $1100 for a water pump and timing belt and new brake pads and rotors in order to safety it (it's on a temp sticker registration right now). I was well aware that with the car being at 167k, the timing belt had been due at 160k. Yes, I know stupid me for not getting it safetied before buying it to catch the brake issue. It brakes fine but apparently they're a bit rusty, even though the rest of the car has no rust.
Anyways, I called the local VW specialist in Innisfil "V-Dubbs" and they want just over half the price of what the Sauga VW dealer wants. (water pump, timing belt and all brake pads and rotors replaced)That seems much more reasonable to me, plus I prefer to support a local business and establish a relationship with them, rather than a stealership. I just bought a CAA membership yesterday and have to wait the 48 hours till tomorrow so I can get it towed at no charge from Mississauga over here to V-Dubbs in Innisfil to get the job done there.
Anyone have any other suggestions? The car is a 2003 Golf GLS TDI. A few days after I got it I went to Amsoil (since I have a membership and work somewhat close to thei distribution center in Sauga) and bought some replacement parts like air filter and cabin air filter, which for someone mechanically stupid like me is easy to do. Once the car is fixed tomorrow or Thursday hopefully I can find the time to go to the local barrie meet...
