Dude, if you have to convince the GF that a MB GTG is worth the drive, you're with the wrong one!

Probably won't be an issue considering the last one that she went to with me

Northern NJ June Jamboree (Sat. 18th) Big event!


Talked with her since I made the post and so far we're good to go. Pen myself +1 onto the list.

1. Whats wrong with it?
2. What takes more then 2 weeks to fix
3. I see a VW in your signature. We won't attack you if you don't show up in a Benz. (At least it's a diesel )

Here's what's happening.

I'm buying a new car... Bare bones VW GTI. Cheapest dealer in the country is in Providence, RI. Saves me about $1500 from any other dealer within a 3 hour drive of here. I also get to pay my very low local sales tax (7.3%) rather than the almost 9% at these other dealers.

I'm considering flying in Friday before the meet to pick up the car, and attend the meet on Saturday.

Would I be shunned?

Not if I'm there. I'll bring my VAG-Com and we can change a bunch of stuff in the computers... make the remote control roll the windows up and down, turn off DRLs, turn on directional fog lights, etc
