Maybe, I think I'll get around to it sometime, but for the most part I'm mainly focused on getting the funds to get my Vogtland coils, then the Godspeed V2 intercooler and finally a K04!

someone on here was selling Vogtland Coils. You'll love Vogtland coil, by the way.

Good idea

Dw, there's also a group on facebook you should message, Seattle Golf R's and Friends, they do meets and cruises, and is generally more active than the forums here.

Hey guys, my lady and I are contemplating moving to WA end of the year.

Couple of questions for you local WA enthusiasts. What kind of scene is up there, roads, PD/HP, mod friendliness?

Currently running a '13 GTI Wolfie on H&R SS, APR S1 intake GolfR IC and a Diesel Geek SS

If your car is your daily driver, get used to it being dirty all the time. I can't really speak for the mod/Euro scene around here although I see modded VWs all the time. Seems like people are just more spread out and there's less of a drive to get involved with others like yourself. I dunno.

Roads are decent...if you stick to the freeways and main arteries. There are plenty of secondary roads and city streets in poor condition.

Not sure what you mean by PD/HP. Watch out for WSP...they use laser A LOT. When they do use radar, it's Ka band. People around here tend to drive EXACTLY the speed limit, if not slower, so if you have a habit of doing 10 over, you'll be obvious.

I haven't had much to do with the dealer so I can't speak on mod friendliness. I'm Stage 2 (full exhaust, Carbonio intake) and the dealer didn't give me any grief about mods when I went in for coil packs recently...though they did claim that coils aren't covered by the powertrain warranty.

socal87, that's how it is in AZ, lots of cars just on one getting a group together. And when there are meets, they're small. But good clean roads are always nice. The roads in my area are trash.

PD = policia HP = hwy patrol. We don't have "state police" here it's all DPS/HP. The few times that I've been pulled they've been pretty decent guys. "Just slow down sir...."

Honestly the roads vary from each area of Seattle and the surrounding suburbs. Once you know your way around you'll stay away from those roads. Pretty much Queen Anne/Oldish Downtown Seattle area roads are most atrocious. There's a street that goes straight to the University of Washington that just has some darn good amount of pot holes. If you stay on the east side or Bellevue area roads are fairly decent. It's not to say that Seattle local roads are that bad either, really depends on where your driving tbh.

I've never honestly been pulled over but I drive 10 over and I stick out like a sore thumb depending on the freeway. If I had a suggestion where to move, Bellevue area is expensive buthe they have some of the best schools in the state and have some good programs. I personally live there so I'm bias but it's pretty solid. You should look for homes near the Factoria area, super convenient place.

Appogee, I appreciate the information. Expensive is relative. Rent in this area is ridiculous, $1.50-2.00 a sq foot.

They don't tend to give out many warnings, at least not any time I've been pulled over. When you do move up here, look into the Seattle Golf R's and Friends group. Ton of guys with GTI's and Golf R's, they do get togethers and cruises from time to time

I would highly suggest buying if you have the capability. I'm paying $0.72 a sq foot for my home, though I'm in Federal Way (between Seattle and Tacoma) which is no where near as expensive as Seattle and Bellevue. I don't live in the ghetto or anything like that, but it's not the fanciest either.
