Darn and I debadged her and still you found me.

Speaking of I35, I spend way too much time driving on freeway.
We are going to replace the brakes later today, 147+ on the odometer.

Last saturday attended a GTG Picnic up in Duluth.
I read about at the last minute. Was a great day except for the wind coming off the lake. It was put on by a bunch of gassers up in there, but they indicate all are welcome. Even had a couple of Saabs and some ricers. Later in day they went on a drive up to Gooseberry Falls. Couple of nice looking ones there. But not a single beetle was in attendance.

Didn't hear about the GTG up here. I live in an information cave. When I got up that morning it was 50 at my house, and when I got to Oakdale (One day trip for work) it was already 80. I thought I'd melt. I keep noticeing in the summer so many more TDI cars passing through Duluth and up the shore. Anyway folks, come on up and enjoy our air conditioned city.

Yeah Duluth was fun. Been dropping the ball relaying info on another GTG that has been going on in White Bear Lake for the past couple Thursdays that was put together over at vortex, here is the thread on it. Love to see more cars out there for the next couple weeks. Last week we had a couple of people asking good questions and sounding like they where interested in the cars and such, not just mad a bunch of people in VW's came to crash a car show which it felt like the first week. So anyhoo, all in all, got noting to do on a Thursday night and want to mingle with a bunch of fellow vdubbers, even in they are gassers come on down, we usually start showing up in the parking lot on the north side of 4th between banning and cook around 5'ish

I'm new to this group and a new owner of a Jetta TDI 2006.5. I've been reading for a while and picking up some helpful hints to keep my TDI running smoothly. I'm due for the first oil change at 5000 miles. I've had the car a little over a month. Yea, I know, I drive alot. I'm in the St. Cloud area, is it OK to take it to Eich for the oil change? I asked them about using the proper oil and they knew all about the 505.01 requirement. I'm not mechanical at all so changing it myself isn't really an option at this point. Thanks in advance for the info.

I'm new, too. Should be picking up a 2001 Beetle tomorrow with only 31K - stored winters! Its an Auto, but that will make significant others happier.

Eich is good. They knew how to clean out my friend's intake when he was down on power and didn't charge too much for a timing belt. Sounds good to me.

I just bought a 98 Jetta TDI and got the wife a 2000 Beetle TDI. We have been having a blast and getting great mileage to boot!. Are there any MN (or near by) GTGs coming up? We would love to meet up.

Wow, 305 up here in St Cloud for Diesel.

DB hope you are feeling ok after your accident, you and VR.

No GTG's that I'm aware of, but I'm always up for one.

my clutch went out yesterday... friend helped tow it back to my driveway with a tow dolly. never made any noises, i just accel'd briskly 1st -> 2nd and then... no 3rd... coasted into a driveway where it sat overnight. checked the shift linkage (dg short shifter) seems fine. it'll shift through the gears if the car is turned off, but on it won't go anywhere. just after coasting in, i did manage to get in reverse and it was stuck there for a while - shift lever wouldn't budge, until i tried starting it a couple times and then it popped out. if i start it with clutch in the whole time, 1st gear, it will try starting and lurch forward for a few feet and eventually start, but still feels like it's in neutral... possible problems i've been told are pressure plate, throwout bearing, dmf.... a clutch job is realistically beyond my capabilities, especially with just jackstands in a dirt driveway. not sure how many vw savvy places there are up in north mn....

Default Burpod clutch

I've only replaced a couple of clutches, none on VW yet. Depending on timing, would be willing to come up to Bemidji from Twin Cities and lend a hand, as I'd like to get familiar with the TDI clutch process.

Maybe it can be an excuse for a sort of GTG?????
