Golf facebook pages

Are there any FB groups/pages for US owners? I have found some for Europe, which really doesn't help if I want to buy some used parts or have questions I want really goofy answers for.

I have a Tacoma also and use a few pages for info and used parts pretty well.

Facebook is the devil. Try VW vortex for parts.

Sometimes there's some good stuff on the pages, or good deals on parts but still like 75% of the pages are mostly "stance kids" and people asking whats the best oil, best tune and best intake 50x a day.

Yeah, this is pretty accurate. I'm just on there to help people for the most part. There is a big turbo page, stratified page, and Torqbyte page I'm on that actually have people that know what they are doing though.

Facebook is excellent for parts. I made an acct about 6 months ago solely so I could message people for parts.

I bought my mk5 5 years ago. In that time, Iíve probably seen 3-4 thunder bunny front bumpers come up for sale on vortex and golfmkv forum. Iíve seen at least 6 for sale in the 6 months Iíve been checking burnallthemk5s on FB. Not relevant here, but still, it shows thereís much more traffic going on there than on forums.

Never going to burden myself with Farcebook. Farcebook is the main reason all internet car forums are dying.
