Bout an hour drive for me but it's all highway. Might not make it out this month due to a work party going on at the same time, but will definitely keep this in mind for future months. I have a buddy that bought a gti a few weeks before me so he might ride out regardless of me being able to make it.

Our meet started out as just minitrucks but when we took over we got it out to more people. Pretty chill meet so far. We have had a few people try to act a fool but we shut that down pretty fast. Seen too many cruise-ins get shut down because of idiots.

For you '11 to '14 model year guys in here, go get your driver's airbag replaced. Another recall announced.

Yeah, saw the airbag bit today. At least they aren't Takata! I think it will take a couple weeks for them to start contacting people, looks like they have to get things in order, and it's VW, so it may take a while....

And the water pumps, that's a sore subject for a lot of people in the 2.0T world. Seems to affect the CBFA (cali emissions) engines much more than the CCTA engines though.

So I bit the bullet today and offered an 8" Android head unit. Looks pretty nice, hopefully it does what I want. I want Waze in my dash, which this will definitely do. I will set up a tasker profile so my hotspot turns on as soon as the Bluetooth connects, so I will always have data available. Beyond that, the stock head unit pisses me off when listening to audiobooks. It has a "gentle fade" when listening over Bluetooth, presumably to avoid loud jolts as you go from total quiet to sound. That works fine for music, as there isn't typically a long enough quiet pause to trigger that fade in. But with audiobooks, it is always clipping off the first word or two of sentences after a slight pause. Gets really damn annoying. Doesn't do it through the aux in, but I don't want to plug in my phone all the time, and that defeats the whole Bluetooth calling thing. So if I get waze and happy audiobook time, Brad happy.

Torque Pro and Google play music in the dash is a bonus.

Got the Joying JY-VQ122, direct from the manufacturer for a little less than 400.

I will post pics when it comes...
