Hey all - Just wanted to say a quick hi! :shakehands:

I was the only American .:R at GTI International this Saturday, and met a couple who handed me a flyer (cant remember their names). They really hooked me up as I oggled thier fine dark-blue (midnight pearl?) .:R (one of 79 I recall?).... freakin' sweet. I would have come back for Sunday as well, but I could only take soo much fun in tha' mud. But it was a great event - I'll try and post some pics of my .:R when I get on my home computer later.

I'll be in England until August (roughly), so let me know if there are any more events coming up - I'd love to meet more of you! This is my first post, but I think I may know a few of you from vwvortex.com - same name, different forum.

:ciao:

Welcome mate, Were you in the show and shine with the blue R that had the front badge colour coded ?

And i think it will have been Rob and Caroline because they did a fine PR job over the two days.

Yes I believe you're right!

Yes, my .:R is American spec, because I am an American stationed in Germany. Not a bad gig huh?

That was mine! I wasnt really trying to win any awards, I just wanted to show-off my car a little... makes me feel special.
I also had the LED display sign in my back window - it's hard-wired into my car with a hidden switch in my dash BTW! :tee:

you can also get them for tshirts from cyberdog of london who will also sell you just the panel. i contemplated getting a sound reactive graphic equaliser thats 2mm thin and 2in high x 10in long to install into my sun visors

as they are remote units there would be no wiring if you wanted to battery power them or you can use and power dropper andrun them from the cars power

Never been there myself, but I do know there's a big Military prison there in Kansas at the Army Post... I'm an AF guy myself...

And if anybody's interested - I live about 45 mins away from the Nurburgring , so let me know, and I can meet up with you guys. I leave Germany in October, but if you come visit before then, you got a place to stay!

But as I said earlier - I'll be here until August, so let me know if there are any more local events - I'd be glad to meet up with you all!
