Hey guys/ladies,

After a very brief search on here, it looks like there aren't any threads dedicated to bringing the triangle area enthusiasts together. So here it is...this thread is intended to bring us together, set up meets, have general chats/discussions, etc. Of course we want to keep this clean and drama free.

I'll kick things off...

My name is Darryn, I live in Raleigh and I drive an all stock (for now) 2014 CC R-Line 2.0t 6MT in Candy White.

I have seen a diesel rabbit pickup truck, a corrado, and a girl driving a mk4 r32 around. Any of you on here? Everyone else, check in and share pics!

I saw that, I'm considering taking my daughter to it. She's all about the VW life now that her dad has one (she's 3).

Love the Mk1. I'm pretty sure I snapchatted a mk1 on phone dials on a car carrier one day like a year or so ago. Wasn't yours was it?

I was about to say, that car hasnt been on a trailer since I brought it home and got it running lol. Helen is a super nice area and there were tons of german cars of all types there the last time I went. Hopefully theres more aircooled stuff this year.

I am so intrigued by aircooled vw's...I hope to buy and restore one someday! As far as Helen is concerned, I am hoping to pull that trip off this weekend. Fingers crossed

I'm out here as well. There are lots of folks in the area I've met from parts swaps, shows, etc. Hopefully mine will be functional soon.

Hi

This is kind of my first post on the Vortex. My name is Allen.
I say kind of because I was on maybe 8-10 years ago(and I forgot all my credentials for the site so I just created a new account) when i owned an '01 Passat wagon. I lived in Fayettville then. I'm back in Raleigh now.

We just purchased a 2014 Jetta TDI on Saturday(I say we but I mean my wife...lol.).

I'm down to hang out, grab a beer, talk sh*t, whatever.

I'll post pics of the car as soon as I can have time when the lighting is good.

By out here do you mean the Greensboro area?

Same here man, I was on here around that same time period just in a different region (New England) lord knows my login info...not me lol

I was looking for TDI wagons with the 6mt before landing on the CC! Maybe if there's enough interest, we can get a monthly meet started or something.

My wife and I had been talking about getting a TDI for years but the timing was never right. We weren't really looking for this particular car, just a car in general. We looked at a few cars we didn't like and were waiting for the keys to another car when we saw the TDI on the website The salesperson spent 30 minutes looking for the keys and found out it was auction fresh. It had a bad battery so it was sitting in the service lane. Somebody at the dealer had jumped the gun and put it up on the website before it was ready to be sold. They jumped it, we drove it, we bought it. It was a Saturday evening and the service department had closed so we had to wait until Monday to take delivery.

So, I went from a no VW family to a 2 VW family in just a couple of months,

Last Friday a buddy of mine and I flew up to MA and drove back in a 1999 Passat. It needs a little work, but it only has 56,000 miles on it and the timing belt and water pump have already been replaced.

Wow 56k! That's awesome. Manual or auto?
