I wanna show my fiance the epitome of VW tuning. Since you guys don't really have smog emissions and laws [to the best of my understanding] aren't as biatchy as they are here in the States (esp. California). Also from my recollection, almost every VW done up in Canada that I've seen on here ahve been done tip top, with no compromises. No offence to you fellow U.S. dubbers!!
So let's see your cars!

No smog laws huh?
Tell the Ontario government that. The only emissions laws more stringent than those in Canada are in the State of California.

Sorry, didn't mean for it to sound like that. I was under the impression (don't know where tho...) that Canada is less restrictive. Thanks for the correction.

BLAME CANADA!!!!!!!!!

Well we do have Emissions testing here In Canada
Once a Year we chip the Ice off the car and put it in the Barn with the Dog sled Dogs and leave the car running for 10 min's. If they don't die then our car passes emissions testing.

Re: Callin' for all ya crazy Canadians..... (RacinJetta)

in my opinion the west coast dubbers (anything to the west of Ontario
) of Canada hook their cars up the right way (ie. clean, purpose built, maybe a bit too low but sweet none the less, fast, proper and a touch of personal style). Check out the http://www.dasfuls.com/ for examples ... great pics and the guys who run the site are members here.

Re: Callin' for all ya crazy Canadians..... (sylens)

Well, seems like I'm gonna be the first one to ACTUALLY POST THE PIC OF MY CAR here (yes, I'm a post whure
, and I'm proud of it
):

(I know, it's not really an example of "tip-top, no-compromise" tuning, but, hell, that's the way I like it
)
BTW, you're (partially) right about smog-testing here- here, like in US, it all varies from province to province, but most provinces (exceptions are Ontario & Quebec- I dunno about BC...) don't have emissions testing. (I run gutted cat on my 'whip'
).
Take care!

Re: Callin' for all ya crazy Canadians..... (LuvVDubs)

Thanks for the good words on the club guys
I wouldn't say we've got the best cars around by any means but our club is geared towards clean euro styled cars, and does have a dress code.. most of our cars are still in the works though

Re: Callin' for all ya crazy Canadians..... (LostBoyScout)

there are several (if not MANY) states that don't do emissions testing. the 2.0T i came close to getting was from michigan, they don't test there. i would have had a hell of a time getting it to pass in CT.

why is it that because a certain shop out west has tons of $$$ and can spend it on building an $60 000 vw they are considered the best tuners in canada. Toronto has the best tuners by far.
Go check out the best cars that SEM, ESS or autobahn have built...some crazy stuff there
a vr6 syncro gti sounds cool..and that's what cars out west are all about..the "wow" factor....here in Toronto the cars are built for driving..and driving fast...none of this "look I have a syncro golf but it's slow" crap...
Out west it's all hype...nuff said
