March 29 isn't going to work for me. I have to work a 24. Yah the life of a firefighter has it's downs as well. Sorry can't make the GTG. I'm still planning on changing my TB March 31 and need someone with a Vag-com to run on my car before and after the change. Please let me know if I can Rent for a day or drive some where to meet up.

I do, and will try to bring them. They were with the auto tools in the store.

MiksTDI,
I'm starting the TB Change at 10am 3/31/07 and with the help if vwsandman's tools and ShanTbolt we hope the car is working before 4/1/07. I have to work at 7am on 4/1 and wouldn't be able to make it. If you can wait or need another person at a different date let me know.
vwsandman,
Thanks for the tool rental and the great wishes. Since I need my car the next day having you guys is a great help.
Later,
Rescuefireman15

Don't know if you're talking about needing the hose clamp tool at the GTG tonight, but I have one and I will be there.

I'm going to try to make it-time for a little road trip. It all depends on customer obligations at work. If they've been met, I'm on the road at 5:30 sharp.

Jeez, you got home before I did! Great seeing you all, and work schedule permitting I'll do it again next month. And we won't be freezing in the parking lot in 30 days.

hello fairly new guy here...had my TDi less than 2 weeks but was jsut at the brat stop with it sat the 13th for a meeting with the f-body(camaro/firebird...you know the gas guzzlers) club I belong to....MFBA. I won't be able to make the meeting as I work nights....but wanted to mention something that has been talked about here. road coarse racing/autoX.

the club i mentioned rents road america for a track day(weekend) 2 times a year....april and october. anyone is welcome to come. since I cant run my camaro cuz it's a convertible with no roll bar, I think i'm going to run my passat around the track a few times jsut for fun. if you don't know what road america is it is a beautiful 4+mile road coarse in Elkhart lake WI. here is more info about it. http://roadamerica.fbody.us/

I hope it's OK that I post that....it is a non-profit fully legal car club and I make no money from, so i'm not selling anything, and I don't work for the track, or anything like that.....jsut passing on some info some of you might be interested in.

Request for the Amsoil guy.
Could he bring one quart of 2 stroke oil mix for dirt bikes?
If they do not come in quarts, what ever the closest sized bottle to a quart is will be fine.

What time should I get there for the free eats upstairs?
