      you know exactly when you're window regulators are going to fail
      you cringe before going to the dealer
      you know more than the dealer's mechanic when describing the problem with your dub and you can quote part numbers

      - You try to take on twisties faster than people with suspension mods on stock suspension!!
      - You admire how nicely modded a STOCK VW is.......(eg. new air freshener)

      *sigh*
      I asked my dealer about the window regulator and coil pack problems, he had no idea what I was talking about.
      You know you're an aussie dubber when: Your mum goes on holidays to Melbourne and gets in trouble from her sister, for shouting "Thats like Peter's Golf!" to every Mk1 and Mk4 that she sees!
      When: Your service manager drives a BMW, the saleslady drives a Range Rover and you're stuck driving a 92 widebodied camry with a broken windscreen.
      When you wave at EVERY v-dub you see. Every fellow Vdubber just looks back at you . You eventually give up waving. One day someone waves at you, you respond with a

      my wife is constantly telling me to stop staring at modded dubs in carparks, in case i get belted up from ppl thinking i am trying to steal their car
      my disease is.... wanting every dub owner to know about the tex forum!

    12. 06-26-2003 03:02 AM #10
      Your driving the family around and see a nice dub, swear coz you dont have your digital camera handy.......family members ask why are you swearing.......answer is "coz I wanted to get pic of that dub coz someone on vortex has same car and would like to see a pic" Then from passenger seat comes........."your a geek", from back seat the 10yo says "why do you talk to people on the computer?" and 6yo says "whats a dub?"
      Oh and everyone you meet says "does your wife's ear ring need an oil?"

      Some guy in a Pearl Blue Golf 4 practically falls out of his car waving at you, eh Braddles?
      When you refer to the 'tex for info about new models.

      You are sitting at your computer and you start laughing.
      Your wife or g/f says "What's funny?"
      And you say "Oh nothing, you wouldn't find it amusing."
      She goes "Come on, tell me."
      And so you say "[whatever you have been laughing at]"
      She looks at you with a blank stare, and is probably thinking

      Your dealer is asking you for information about the delivery date and specifications of the R32.

      I was out at Krispy Kreme again yesterday and there were about 200 other people who didn't think it was a bad idea either
      We also spotted this old asian guy who looked about 110 years old in the shade and seemingly ate too many doughnuts and couldn't handle the pace any more...

      and I used to think mobile phone cameras were overrated
