Thumbs up Post Fest Comments

Bruce:

I don't know if this is the right place to post after thoughts of the TDIFEST-OH08. I enjoyed the get together of TDI enthusiats with the exception of numerous insect bites.

I feel that the bidding of donated products could have been better if all the bidders were made aware if the products and its compatibility with there vehicle platform were more precise. Many products were for A3's and A4's platforms, but for those owning b5's and b5.5 basically were unsured if they should bid on something that they may be unable to use.

I did not realize that many prominent mechanics, Oilhammer, Mogolf, JasonTDI, Chris Hill, yourself, etc. would be at this year's fest. I would distinguish there presence with a color coded name tags, which would allow them access to restricted areas ( Jeff's Chip area ). Since most crimes are observed by people not realizing that a crime had been commited, a color coded name tag may have prevented this.

I hope you take these comments or past it along to the next organizers. I know there isn't going to be enough thank yous for you to make you want it do it again too soon.

Thanks.

Tom

Thanks for the comments. Just FYI, items were labeled for the chassis they were intended for. The B5.5s use some of the same items, but it takes someone who knows to differentiate it. I don't see enough PD Passats to do this.

As for the nametags, interesting idea. I do know that most of the wrenchers are there to have fun. However, we don't mind answering questions. Limiting access to certain vendor areas, hmmmm. I'll have to think about that. Gurus/experienced TDIers tend to congregate in the RC area.

As far as I know, the only area that Jeff restricts is entry into the trailer(s)...the chairs out front are usually fair game (especially if you are waiting for a chip!)

Caveat Emptor.
The A4 column mount gauge pod claimed to be compatible with the B5 turns out to not be.
