If the car that you are talking about is the 2011 listed in your Sig, and if you have the "Highline" version (top of the line) you may be able to activate the Auto Rain Closing Windows if you have the Rain Sensor installed.

I could be wrong though...

MrVermin
Thanks, it is the car in the sig, but it doesn't have a fancy package.

I was going as cheap as I could when I got it, but when I shopped around, one guy had the one with the sun roof for about $200 more than any of the other deals I saw.

That's all I was asking about.

If you need an example of an appropriate response, see the post above yours.
I was being facetious, no insult intended.

You just need to get in the habit of checking visually whether it's open or not.

My Golf doesn't have a sunroof so I don't know what the switch looks like. Is it still a rotary/dial type? One direction tilts it open, the other slides it back? If you only cracked it open, the switch would be a good indicator.

put me down for (1) to be there. I haven't seen John at Impex for a few years, I was driving a Camry for a while but now I have a TDi Golf. Any idea if Impex is ordering any of the euro-spec'd parts to have on hand, such as the cubby bin under the headlight switch or any of the aspherical mirrors?

Check out the first post. Preordered parts can be picked up at the Fest, but there will not be any sales that day.

I will be there, was there for the first, proud to be there again.

My car is finally done being tuned, well getting cams with next belt, then it's done.

Will bring case of Heineken or becks, thats food right?

-George Pirpiris- (Alex, my brother who does sales at Impex won't be there, don't mix us up, we look similar)

Any out of towners who know me, I finally bought a house in Baltimore city in greek town (right off 95, have huge couch and guest room if you want to after party or rest before driving 8-12 hours.)
If you want to have some of the best Greek food in America, just follow me home, we can go to Zorba's

I'll be there!

Will bring my homemade kit if anyone wants to do a Lubro Moly injector flush while there. Can pre-order a can from Impex for pickup that day, as the sales counter will be closed. Same one I brought last time for anyone that needs it.

That means that there will be two set ups this year. I'll be bringing mine also so there won't be a waiting list! ;)

Ok,

I just convinced myself.... I'll be there... Only an 8 and 1/2 drive from my place and just over 1/2 a tank of fuel :cool:

I'll leave Friday night about midnight, and arrive about 9am Saturday morning for the festivities.

Only thing is I'll need a place to crash for Saturday night so I can leave Sunday :p:D

See ya all there.

Anyone coming that is experienced in installing a new drivers side door lock. I can help and am willing to pay someone that has done it before. PM me if interested.

Motel reservation made, check. Eric off work early, check. Me off work, check. Waggin ready, check. Parts order made.....oops! I'll get that done Monday.

Guys, don't forget to make your parts orders. Great opportunity to pick up shop supplies/extra filters, etc without paying shipping.

Good reminder on the parts orders! I'll have to do an inventory of the shed and see what we need.

So far the weather for this weekend looks pretty good.

76 degrees and a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. All of that could change, but it's on the up and up for the moment. :cool:

Ok folks.....I just spoke to John at IMPEX.
There will not be a TENT this year. The driveway has new asphalt on it.....
and as such John did not want to drive spikes in it......So if you want shelter bring your own.
That said! 3 more days!!

NO TENT RAISING ON FRIDAY!!

Hmm - for the future, you can get frame tents that do not require spiking into the ground. The frame tents are self supporting and get tied down to 55 gallon drums full of water. I'm renting a 20x20 for TDIFest for the hotel parking lot for under $300... possibly a larger one depending on turnout.

Just an option! :)

Tom,

I can snag a couple of pop-up tents from work if you want some shade for the food. Let me know.
