Now the Honda scene in Florida...ugh, I'll drive my honda, but the risk of theft just turns me off.
I do like the local autox groups in the area regardless of affiliation/make, they have great events and welcome all makes.

the fact you would even associate someone elses thoughts/opinions or the image they perceive with a car purchase YOU are making is a joke.
notice how i didnt mention a single car company and yet you still tagged the "VW fanboy" title just further proving my previous point.
admit you are scared to think for yourself and move on, im not going to go out of my way to not buy a car i like because some stranger misinterprets the image im suppose to give off..
I want to buy an HD Iron 883 and build a cafe-style bike out of it. Badly. I can't get the idea out of my head, and have already picked out half of the parts necessary to do it.
But then I will have "a Harley." I do not wish to be grouped in with "Harley guys," and I do not wish to answer the question "why don't you get some LOUD PIPES for that thing?!?!?!?!" every single time I ride it in public.
"This couldn't possibly break, I'll put it way the **** down there." -every German car engineer.
When I think of buying an already-done hybrid Civic hatch, I stop to consider what the cops in Fairfax County will think.
When I think of buying another ITR, I stop to consider what thieves will think.
When I think of buying a BMW or a Porsche, I stop to consider what my parents and my in-laws will think.
I don't want to give the impression that I'm a street racer, an easy mark, or living beyond my means. I'll stick w/what I've got
Tell us again how you don't drive a MK4.
On topic: I personally hate the VW "scene" and have not been interested in attending most of the shows or other events with the exception of a couple. Mainly because I don't like most of the owners. I only own VW's because I am comfortable fixing them when something breaks. And if it's something that I don't know how to fix, there is always one good person in a sea of asshats on these forums that can offer some good advice other than "lower it" or "not enough camber."

i still love my A3 but i can't stand the forums that exist for it.
90% of the threads are "how doez i black out teh grillz", "painted my wheelz yo", "do i need BOV?" etc, so i stay away.
audizine.com is super childish now, the A3 forum on vortex is too slow, and the rest plain suck. hardly any tech knowledge, and hardly any people with intelligence left around the A3 nowadays.
i like my car, just not the retards that surround it. whatever.
however, i LOVE the BMW 2002 scene completely. bmw2002faq.com has lots of great people, tons of support, and many helpful tips. the community there is great. lots of knowledge, tech support, cheap part selling/swaps, etc. you really couldn't ask for more.
