There are some car meets in columbia on fridays and saturdays. If you have a facebook look for the "select modified crew" page. Ignore all the childish bs and look for the events they post. Most of the kids at the friday meets are immature. So the actual events they have are nice because its a wide range of people from around the area. There is also cars and coffee on saturday mornings in Cola. Just know that you may be the only or one of a few Euros at many meets. Unless I happen to make it up there from Sumter. If you have any questions please ask.

There are two performance shops that work on Euros in charleston.

European Road and Racing
JK Automotive

They should be able to point you towards a good body shop. There is also the facebook page "Charleston Dubs" and "Low Country Volkswagen Club". There are many dubbers in the charleston area and im sure one of them will be able to assist you.

Super Late

Moncks Corner, SC here, and I'm checking in with my 2014 GTI candy white DSG. I have a Unitronic Stage 2 ECU and TCU, Unitronic TBE, Unitronic Intake, and R8 coil packs. This is my second GTI, my first being a 2012 3DR CSG DSG. That car got totaled out, and I can share my story in a new thread if anyone is interested (pictures included). I also have a '03 Beetle Turbo S that I drive to work during the week with.

Im currently deployed but will be back in SC towards the end of January.

I have clean Gti plaid seats. 4 door and heated of course. They are in great condition, the car only has about 20k on it.

I really want to trade for some plain black 4 door and heated seats from a Tdi or whatever. If theyre in good condition ill even add cash on top.

IF you have power seats and heat then i can trade the entire seats. If not then I would like to trade just the covers. Basically, as long as I dont lose my power and heat ill do whichever haha.

Like I said I wont be in SC until January unfortunately, but if youre interested and are in the SC area please hit me up.

I see plaids for sale on here all the time. Im hoping it wont be hard for me to trade them for "lesser" tdi/golf seats.

Also, for the record, no im not a fan of leather.

I can also trade arm rests and shiftboots for non red stitched ones if you want to do that with the seats, but im mainly concerned about the seats haha. I can get rid of red stitching, cant get rid of the plaid.

Hopefully i can make someone with a Golf or Tdi happy lol

Thanks!

Charleston has a decent car scene. The VW scene is pretty good also. There is some good money in that town so there are also plenty of high end cars.

For tuning options you have European Road and Racing (APR) and JK Automotive (Unitronic). I have been to both shops. Both guys are great and will be a wealth of knowledge. For facebook groups you have Charleston Dubs and Low Country Volkswagen Club.

I don't care for the car local car shows. It seems you need airbags and nice wheels or just be popular to win awards.

Thats the case for any euro themed car show. You need low, 3 piece wheels, and lots of fans. I dont care how nice your car is. If youre not part of the scene you will never win.
