      What was with that KTM rider bringing his KTM to an Austrian show? What a ***.

      Personally I didnt mind seeing them come to Helen. True car enthusiasts will go where all the good shows are. It just so happens that VAG shows DO IT RIGHT! I enjoyed seeing all of the cars that weekend, even the JDM ones.

      But seeing them take spots up on the show grounds where other VAG rides cant get in cause it was full was slightly disappointing.

      The bolded part is the most important. If you don't drive a VAG car, you're still welcome to the show, per the organizers of SOWO.

      I agree that the main showgrounds should only include VAG cars, but vendors can bring whatever they'd like to display in their booths. They're the ones helping to make the show happen!

      This whole debate is kind of pointless... The whole weekend was amazing, regardless of what make of vehicle showed up. SOWO creates an instant community of car enthusiasts that's hard to find anywhere else.

      Let's all just be happy that this spectacular show has such a welcoming home and a dedicated group of individuals that want to make it happen every year.

      Correct on the last part. That is why my miata was parked in a parking lot all alone. All the other non VAG are more of "guest" to the event. I mean it is a VW/audi show and everyone has worked really hard to make it what it is. I wouldn't expect a VW to come park in the middle of a all Mazda meet. But I would welcome them no question to come and enjoy every aspect of the event.

      Having said that....SOWO was conceived as an enthusiast festival for owners of vehicles within the Volkswagen Audi Porsche family. The main event site is designated for owners of those brands. The area set aside for Other Euros is intended for for just that. If you are attending in any car considered JDM, Tuner, Sport Compact or otherwise non-Euro, you are always welcome to join the fun but you will need to be prepared to park in the original event area in the parking lot across from Cool River Tubing.

      We have had virtually very kind of import car imaginable participate in SOWO going all the way back to the first year, and we are always impressed with the level of preparation, build quality, stance and overall impact of these cars, but SOWO is, was and will always be focused on the marques it was intended for.
      Oh, but what do the event organizers know? They are not true enthusiasts like yourself.

      You're absolutely right, my bad. I am sorry SoWo was ruined for you and so many others with things like cars that were'nt just like yours and people who like them and don't care that they are there.

      SoWo 2013 cancelled due to diversity and welcoming attitudes

      Sounds like the only people who were "expecting" to be on the show field is the people who showed up too late then got butthurt someone let in a few subarus. Just saying.

      Can't you just understand that many of these folks actually would enjoy a show filled with their own cars and without the same "outcasts" in attendance? There are plenty of shows that embrace diversity. Don't use the "my car scene sucks, so I attend VW shows" as an excuse.

      Yes, why should Vag drivers expect to have space to park at their show? The nerve of them.

      I'm going to have to use that excuse for the handicapped spot at work. "Sorry gimpy, should have come to work a little earlier."

      Lol you're a clown. I just said i agree that it should have ONLY been vag cars in the main lot. The only people to blame is the staff. Would I have a complaint for them? Absolutely not, this show is my favorite and probably always will be. Like i stated earlier this is the 4th year I've been to sowo, I've never shown or registered my car for the event. I respect that it's a vag show and don't bother trying to show bc i know how passionate you people are about keeping it an all vag show. But there is a huge double standard bc there are a million bmw's that show up and they are perfectly fine. So maybe you should focus on bitching about the bmw's that stole all these spots.




      And I'm not going bc your scene is "cooler," I'm going to look at the cars.

      They should have parked their cars on Friday evening like the show organizers asked everyone to

      I showed up at 11am on Saturday, heard they weren't letting cars on the showgrounds (I had a feeling this would be the case), and parked my car on the other side of the river, NBD. I wasn't butthurt that I couldn't park on the showgrounds and neither were any of the people I parked with on the other side in our VWs.

      To be honest, it seems like you're the only one that continues to beat this topic to death. Do the other cars offend you that much? There wasn't a shortage of space in the showfield bc non-VAG cars were parked in there. The organizers chose not to allow more cars in after a certain time, that's all.

      Based on the showground map and info before the show, ANY non-VAG car was supposed to not be in the showgrounds or even in booths. BMWs would be classified as non-VAG, regardless of them being German cars

      So if I voice my opinion on exclusivity, it's beating a topic to death. If you voice your opinion that conflicts with mine, it's not.

      I'm sorry. I will know my place next time.

      Anyone took pics of that awesome stanced purple civic?

      Funny, there was a thread in the H2O forums that said it was the dopest shiz at the show. You guys don't know a well built car when you see one.

      I Used to own a MKIV R32, and I Still love the VW scene. Is it really that big of a deal that I brought my non VW car to this event? The VW Scene used to be the most friendly of any group i'd ever seen, it seems to me that times are changing.
      I don't always use race gas, but when I do, I use my EIP race file.

      I drove my honda to the show this year (blue one) and i drove my miata last year. ive owned many VW's but not around SOWO time.

      i love the show, even though I drive a import, I like SOWO more than Import alliance.

      I will attend SOWO every year whether i drive a corvette or honda or vw lol
