Have lots of fun, everyone. We can't attend this year as it is my husband's 50 year class reunion. Will miss the socializing and always good information!

Know this is short notice but a friend of mine can use an interior trim piece for an A4 Jetta/Golf which is the one that goes under the glovebox on the passenger side - color is black. So if anyone has one shoot me a PM and/or LMK here that you will bring same including price for same.

And Robert (251) is correct, you will need a hardware kit to install these.
Any golf hoods or grilles? Mk4

Car's full of fuel and at some point tonight I'll pack a bag. Leaving early in the AM, traveling into Canada at Niagara Falls and across the top of Lake Erie. My house to Sarnia, Ontario, where I travel back into the states is 685 miles, so I shouldn't have to refuel in Canada. Hotel near Grand Rapids is 879 miles. If I drove the B4 I could make it on one tank. IBW, not so much, at least not at 75-80 MPH.

Nope, but have two rust free MK4 Golf hatches, one white and one silver.

Three MK4 Jetta wagon doors, in indigo blue, rust free, dent free, and one indigo blue rear bumper cover for a wagon

That's my favorite way to go from IL to my folks in western NY and beyond. My wife accuses me of wanting to be Canadian, and I remind her that Canada is indeed in my blood from my great grandpa.

This GTG will happen rain or shine - guaranteed!

Have a few too many coming a long way including hotel reservations to just "up and cancel" which is NOT going to happen!

Kirk has two garages plus there will be some canopies to provide shelter from "liquid sunshine". I know as we've had rain at ones in the past - didn't stop us one bit from having a good time.

I only point out the rain factor so one can be prepared with a good rain jacket or umbrella if desired. So unless you drive a show car that never sees rain c'mon out and join us...!

Seems there was rain last year and Kirk was well prepared for it. No worries.

I’m going to sit this one out. Wednesday afternoon I started feeling a cold happening, by thurs it was fully progressed. It might be turning into a sinus infection again and I don’t want to spread the love.

Are you referring to a boost pressure relief hose / fitting? Not sure what you mean by 'ps'? If so, Rocketchip supplied one as part of the tuning process when my A4 Jetta was chipped years ago. Might be worth your while to see if you can contact Jeff this afternoon/evening to see if he can help you out so all may not be lost here yet...

As for another GTG "soon" right now Kirk is the only one hosting one nowadays in Michigan so it should be October 2018 (don't quote me on this - I'm not speaking for Kirk here) before the next one.

Also remember you can still come and learn about TDI's with like minded individuals!

No im referring to my power steering hose that blew last weekend, and found one for $30 Instead of$90 at the stealership. I didn't think it would take this long. And then I still hope that the hose is the only problem since it blew on my way home from Lansing at night and nothing I could do but drive it home.
