Basically because no one buys parts anymore
I work 6km up the road from Impex. I've ordered from them five times in the past six weeks. Why would I wait for ImpexFest for parts when I can pick them up on the way home any day of the week? Should I wait to pick up suspension bushings/mounts for the NB so it'll make them happier? :confused:

I would guess that if they had oil, filters and that kind of maintenance parts available the day of, they would get more business. I can't count the number of GTGs I've been at that folks didn't bother placing orders with vendors beforehand and then went around asking if those of us smart enough to pre-order had X, Y or Z we'd sell them because they need it maaaaaaaaaaaan.

I was making an observation as to why sales might be slow. I plan on attending this event and purchasing parts. Also, I don't plan on wrenching on my car in their lot... i'll be doing that at my house.
I stand corrected. I am a price shopper and thier parts may be a a couple of bucks more on one thing and a few less on another, it all balances out in the end. They have good parts not china town knockoffs and good customer service.

I thought you said you wanted to install your transmission mount earlier in this thread? yes... right here...

I'll be ordering motor mounts and the trans mount for my car... hopefully I can get at least the trans mount installed while I'm there. My current one is shot.

It's certainly a possibility. We'll see how the day turns out. I might be driving the TT up instead of the Jetta... dad is interested in a chip. Or perhaps he'll make the drive up!

Buying parts is part of the GTG. Now I have found that there prices are good and I prefer to buy from Impex for the most part. I just did my list today.

If the vendor putting on the GTG (or their mouthpiece) is considering not having it anymore due to no one buying parts, they have made it into a shopping issue.

I've been buying parts as I need them because I'm lucky enough to work very close to their warehouse. If I was expected to pick up parts the day of the event in order to 'show support' for the vendor, that should have been explicated up front.

I can go for part of the morning, but do have to leave somewhat early to be at work. I can help transport parts to some limited areas (5,6,7 ) hours later in the week for those wishing to order but not able to pick up.

I have a 2.0 and a TDI needing work LOL.

Ordering At Impex

PEOPLE PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS THIS MESSAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY WORLD IMPEX STAFF:

As an employee of Impex, I want you to understand that you DO NOT have to order parts to attend the event. Nor do we need the public tdi folks to order parts for us to hold the event.

All we are asking is that if you need parts to PLEASE pre-order. We do this so that like you, we can enjoy the festivities without working all day. Were not saying we are not willing to sell you parts on the day of the show, but it causes a lot of time loss when if you pre-ordered, all you would have to do is tell us who you are, and we hand you your parts!

We are not dependent on customers purchasing parts to hold the event. This is strictly our way of showing appreciation to all previos, current, and or new customers. We are also providing a means of new contacts for vendors such as "Rocket Chip, Torque Junkie" etc.

Please just show up with smiles:D and the desire to socialize nicely with each other.

We look foward to seeing you all there!:cool:

kgirlbug2k,

I just installed heated seats with the OEM switches in my Beetle last winter. I can show you the wiring diagram and how I wired everything. I don't think there would be enough time to fabricate a wiring harness and get everything hooked up. I'll be driving my 2005 Beetle to the Impex GTG. Hope to get there around 8:30 - 9:00 a.m.

Officially soliciting the help of those with a greater knowledge base than I. (basically everyone) Just installed PP764's and have a hesitation\stumble\miss at various rpms and load. No VAG com at the moment. Willing to pull the injectors to have them pop tested and throw the old ones back in, when I pick up new crush washers at the event. I only have 3 new ones left. Dealer is out of stock.
Also will there be any BIO for sale at the event. None for sale within 40 miles of me.

Oliver,

Hope to see you there. I've got a couple questions on mods for a BEW to run by you and Jeff (if he has a couple minutes to spare, probably not). THanks!
