      Just got a black 2013 VW CC Sport Plus last Friday.

      I am a complete newbie to VW (couple buddies with VW) always been a GM guy (actually a tundra owner for the past couple years) and now the light has shined down to show me the way..... Blah just a great manufacturer with a solid line of products. I look forward to growing old with a new group and know I will learn a vast amount of knowledge along the way. I hope I will be able to help out as I know a forum is built on its members and their ability to help one another.

      I am also an outgoing moderator for a Buell Forum, but have moved on after 6yrs of focus on that.

      This is how my drive way looks now.


      before, bike is an old custom Buell, old s-10 is how I got my screen name.




      largest hobbies, mt bike racing (glad the CC can fit my bike in the trunk) and off roading.

      Posted in your other thread, but welcome man!

      There's a local/Michigan VW forum as well, if you wanna check it out:
      www.michiganvw.org

      On October 14th, there will be "Chilifest" on Belle Isle....a MIVE event.
      It's a decent sized meet and you can bring chili or show up & eat chili for a few bucks...meet some other VW owners and show off your car.



      What'd you end up doing with the S-10, btw??

      I had the s-10 for 8rs from brand new to fully custom but decided I needed a practical vehicle and a bagged s-10 with no heat/ac was not it. I ended up selling it to a guy out in NY. Was glad to see the truck go because if I would have held on to it I would have dropped way to much more money into it and still only been able to sell it for what I got out of it when I did sell it.

      this was my walk around for the guy since he was actually in Afghanistan when he bough it and I delivered it to his parents.

      I will look into this for sure. New house and a Halloween party have my weekends dedicated toward finishing my heated garage though.

      true, replaced by another. now the Tundra is becoming a sand toy and the CC will be a low key DD with a few clean mods, but don't tell my wife the mod part

      Immediately counter with shoes and clothes, then wink, and follow up with "You're right as usual, dear."

      Then keep modding.

      Welcome. I'm a former custom Buell XB9R and GMC Sonoma owner myself (wish I still had both). I've seen your truck before but I don't think I remember the Buell. You'll have to put some pics up some time.
