This thread came out of a conversation I had with selfatvi earlier today....
Basically, this is a blanket apology to the entire forum. I have done a lot of thinking about myself recently and that is what made me decide to try to right whatever wrong I have done. To be completely honest, I, to the best of my knowledge, have not done anything to wrong anyone personally out there but have seemed to rub some people in the wrong way and that is definitely not what I wanted. Everything I have done was done with the best intentions for the community but it has become blatantly obvious that no matter how hard I try, people will not understand where I am coming from until there is a mutual sense of respect... I know there will be those that will hate on me no matter what I do, and to you guys, I have said my peice and I can not do anything more than that... To the people that are willing to take this letter for what it is, please accept my deepest, heartfelt apology and I hope I can, in the future, show you that the negative things you had felt about me in the past are simply a misunderstanding... If there are some that dont dis-believe this letter but aren't willing to wipe the slate clean, PLEASE do not hesitate to either IM me or approach me at some point and I am more than happy to talk to you about whatever issues may still remain....
To rant anymore wouldn't serve any positive purpose, so again, I'm sorry... Here's a
to new beginnings and your thoughts are welcomed...

Brandon
SoCalDubber, socaldumpster, socalfartknocker, I'm sure there are others..

Im not sure what Brandon is apologizing for, but he is a good guy, and Im not sure why some of you hate on him. Hopefully everything can be put behind everyone and start fresh.

Re: (TANiK)

honestly bro, it just looks like you are trying to cover your ass, but at least for once you admit that you have definitly been in the wrong many a time.
not to be mean or anything, but im just giving you the honest truth. your not a bad guy, and we are cool, but uve done some stuff that, well, i dont agree with, lets put it that way.
just think a little bit more about some of the stuff you do in the future. time will heal your reputation.
taking off the stickers and laying off the sponsorship talk would be a good start. and maybe try to blend in for a while. but i have nothing against you, we have been//will be --chill

Re: (altitude)

well, since this is a useless post, ill add to it...

I'm proud to say, my car no longer runs on diesel...well, it kind of does...It now runs on part Soy oil and part diesel.
Earlier today, i went to Ventura City to buy Bio Diesel. In doing so, i topped off my tank, which took about 10 gallon and i also filled three 5 gallon jugs to bring back to the valley.
So far, im liking this Bio Diesel...hardly any black smoke, no more diesel smell, and reduced knocking noise. On top of all those benefits, this fuel lubricates and cleans the living shwoop out of the engine.
Today was my first day running the Bio Diesel, so ill keep you all updated on this very very useless post that's not even suppose to be in this section...its suppose to be in the TDI section

Re: Apology Thread (SoCalDubber)

hey, i've never talked to you before, or ran into you at any meets or anything so i have no first hand experience with your behavior. but i was curious as to why there was so much **** talked about you on these boards.so i did some research. the first thread i found as evidence was the sfv gtg thread.from reading it, i know you probably don't know what you did wrong, and in fact you meant no harm either, but let me explain to you what it is that was offensive:
the vw community as a whole hates to be put into the same catergory as a group of streetracers/lawbreakers, like our friends in the import community have. and when the public sees us gathering up in groups, they've got their eye on us because they probably think we meet up to race because they saw it on fox 11 news or some bs. so if you give them any reason to think we are going to be up to no good (i.e doing burnouts in the parking lot, revving your motor, driving in a way to attract attention) they're going to call the cops on us and ruin our once friendly gathering.
furthermore, the majority of vw people like to keep gtg's small. its like if your having a party: sure you want people to show up, but if you invite everyone in town it's bound to get out of hand and broken up.
i also noticed a few threads where you came off as bragging about your car. thats just asking for it. no body likes a bragger no matter how cool your car is.no one cares if you have sponsors or if you have a car club. the things others do care about is the intentions you might have, and from what i have read, it seems you have your own ideas of what the whole vw scene should be like, which is going against what everyone else wants. my advice to you is to stay humble and realize that the scene is the way it is because the majority of people like it that way, and don't try to be some kind of hero and fix something that isn't broken.

Well let me say this in very short response, its late and I just read this but just wanna say this before I go to sleep: I love the way the VW scene is... It's amazing and one of the only reasons (other than financial) that I am mots likely not taking an Evo VIII opportunity.... For example, when I went up to New Dimensions, all I brought was a cooler with some
and an inflatable air matress.... I KNEW the group was cool enough that more than one person would offer their floor.... more than willing. And I appreciate that "comradery" that the VW scene presents. I will admit there were a few things that I tried to do when I first started coming around, but call that me being an anxious rookie and tried to do what at the time I thought was right..... No harmful intentions, just not done in the right manner... I have learned from my mistakes and feel I have really learned, or tried to, from them.....
