Has anyone spoken to Jules? She had a TDI Beetle, then got a MK4 Jetta Wagon TDI. I have not seen/talked to her in years!

I picked up some BBS RCs, I just got them Powdercoated. I am trying to decide what tire size to get. stock 225 of go to 215. I putting coil overs on soon, I am gonna run 8mm up front and 16 in the rear.

On a side note, I getting rid of the CC. Gonna keep my TDI, and the wife will hopefully be driving a JSW.

Do you plan on tucking the tires into the fenders? If so (and if I remember the RC specs) 205s would probably work out better, but even then not much of a stretch. Otherwise might as well just do the stock size.

Sounds like another good time at Impex! I'm hoping I can make it again this year.

I am tucking, not flush. I will read up more before I buy.

Tony/OEO,

Hope to see you there again this year. Driving the Beetle, again. I finally installed/wired my OEM HID headlights. Put in a Stage 3 DC clutch last Fall. Going to do quite a few things when I do the timing belt in about 5,000 miles or so.

Is there an official "For Sale at Impex" thread or are we even aloud to sell used parts and what not.

I ask because I have 1 maybe 2 A3/B4 intake manifolds that I would like to get rid of. As well as few Cd/changers 1 b5 and 1 b4 and maybe even a head unit if I can find the code. If it is permitted, a thread would help those who maybe looking for and/or selling items have a place to post instead of the main event thread.

Thoughts?

I'm should make it up. Had fun when i was there last time. Does impex have the machine for pop testing injectors or is any one bringing one? Thinking about putting in a set of pp520 either there or before hand. Not sure of the necessity of pop testing, but if its available why not?

The Dulles Hyatt (2009 Fest location) is $71/night for Friday and Saturday nights... can't beat that price if you're trying to stay in the DC area. Book now, pay now. http://dulles.hyatt.com

Yes, we'll be doing Thai Thai again on Friday night. :D

And where might one find that coupon? Those bandits tried to hold me up for $100/night last year.

Dulles is an hour and a half to two hours away, not three (unless you're in traffic, which there will be none of at 8am on a Saturday).

If your going to stay that far away then spend the night in Culpepper. Dulles is a dump and too expensive in my opinion.

Now there's a good reason to keep this event on the weekend before Mother's Day...:(

Hope you guys have a good time - first one we're missing in (well for Peter - ever and for me 7 years)

We want tee shirts if there are new ones this year!

I'm going to have to drop out of this one guys. My work called me off of layoff to offer me a fulltime position 1st shift, which I had to refuse as it interferes with school schedule. Now I can't collect and they won't let me go part time. 1.5 years of third shift, and now they do this.

C'est la vie

Work was putting the screws to me, too... but I held my ground and have off for the whole weekend of Impex. :D I guess someone else will just have to run the huge Microsoft SharePoint event here at work. ;)
