Thanks! I wanted to combine my love of Suds and Dubs... The car is an 06' GLI w/REVO STGII+. I bought a second trunk lid, laminated it, and attached the tower. It takes about 5-10 minutes to swap out the lids. After all I don't think my HR department would enjoy that in the parking lot. The bar coasters are magnetic and the entire setup remains on the car while in motion. So far the tower is good up to 135MPH winds. For SoWo I used a 1/4 barrel of beer (7.75gal) and a 5lb aluminum CO2 tank. I was supposed to get the tank polished to match the wheels but I ran out of time. H20i is going to be even better as I'll have my homebrew instead of crappy bud light (yuck). In addition I plan on expanding the tower to dispense both cold beer and margarita.

Lol. You're not the first person to say that. In this order:
1. Does that thing actually work?
*pops trunk lid*
2. How many times have you been arrested for that.
Legally speaking the setup is legit. As long as the keg isn't coupled whilst in motion it isn't considered an open container. From the tax perspective I was allowed to bring in exactly 7.75 gallons of beer from NC to GA for the show. I'll buy a keg when I get to H20i. There wasn't any spot in Helen, GA to buy a keg.
I went through a gauntlet of police through three states and not a one batted an eye at me. They did however pull over one of our members for having a europlate...
