      I'll change before I leave work, so 1pm works great for me. Going down the coast, so you want to go down Route 41? Or I-75?

      I figured probably down one way and up the other, but which one we do first doesn't really matter to me.

      Alright, why don't we go straight down 41 and then back up on 75. I work on 41, so it would be really easy to meet up. You want to just meet me where I work?

      I go around 7 o'clock and usually grab something to eat first. Then I go outside and everybody's there.

      I'm going to be in Tampa for a few months for work. It would be good to get out to some car meets while down there. I'm from minneapolis.

      Some of us are you going for a drive on tomorrow afternoon if you'd be interested. By no means large, but hoping to grow into something larger soon.

      How was it? Any pictures??

      Just got my car back from the bodyshop. Somebody hit me and gave me a minor dent in my quarter panel - I made the biggest mistake of my life and had it painted and the paint doesn't match and they left a bunch of swirl marks on my rear pillar. I went back the next day and told the manager I wasn't happy with the quality of work and he said "that's not my color, this car has been painted before" but that he would correct it because of their good customer service. I received my car back filthy and this shop lost my trust.

      Worst weekend ever. Hope the drive was fun!

      Oh damn man I'm sorry to hear that. I just had to have a dent fixed on mine too. Shop matched the Metallic paint up very well. We didn't do the drive. Severe thunderstorms down here. What are you doing tonight? Text me bro. 8453371141

      None on the Mk7s. On my Mk5 a ton. DRLs off, windows and sunroof on the key fob, FTPs and fogs on with High Beams, etc. Going to play with steering assist and brake settings but haven't yet.
