I have a lowered black Rabbit with a Yakima rack on it. It may have been me since I wave at pretty much every dub I see.
I have a driveway and plenty of tools but my driveway has a strip of grass running down the middle of it so it may not be ideal for some of the under-car stuff. I'd be willing to help anyway and I do have a jack and jackstands. I also have the Bentley book for the MKV Golf family if you need to use it.
Also, sorry, I'm one of those people who drives like an a--hole. I grew up near Boston so it's kind of my thing. But I at least try to be safe about it and not do dumb things.
Edit: Actually, it probably wasn't me since I'm not on that side of town very often.
I'll be in Houston this weekend so I can't make a gtg this time. I'll let ya'll know if I still have some maintenance left after I get back.I have a garage we can work in one weekend when it warms up. It's not clean but it's better than nothing. We need to have a gtg soon
I just checked Ross-Tech's website and it looks like you need a Hex-CAN cable. Mine is only good for MKV and up Golf/Jetta/Beetle and Tourans. evilla did mention a couple posts back in this thread that he has a Hex cable so you might PM him.
Yes, I do have one. I have to go out of town again this weekend but any other day is good. pm me.I just checked Ross-Tech's website and it looks like you need a Hex-CAN cable.

I moved down here in august and we drove from Washington state.I have done some things in the parking lot. I'm waiting on better weather to attempt the DSG, Differential, Fuel Filter, and Brake Bleed.
Also, is the driver of black Golf that gave me the thumbs up on here? I was cruising down La Salle when I got it and he sped right by me. Usually people are trying to race me so it's nice to just get a thumbs up.
That reminds me, what's up with the drivers around here? Everybody drives aggressive. I have been purposely cut off twice where the driver accelerated to not let me in. Both times the driver was speeding, driving reckless, and just wanted to cut me off. Then the other day I pulled onto La Salle just as a truck was turning from the opposite side. Instead of slowing, he gassed it. Luckily for me, my car had more balls. He ended up looking pissed that he couldn't catch up. It's just crazy. You would think that people would act more civil because more than likely you are going to run into each other again.
They're both pretty bad for driving. At least the roads are better kept than in Arkansas. My suspension took a beating there. I don't see how you can drive a lowered car in a place like that. It would probably be a pain here too I imagine. Anyone lowered here in Waco?Houston is worse...

Last month I drove to Arkansas and I was relieved when I hit the Arkansas state line because Oklahoma's roads were killing my back. I'm slightly lowered...if not for the roads on my route to work I might go further.They're both pretty bad for driving. At least the roads are better kept than in Arkansas.

I got cheap starter coils that aren't adjustable rate. They're not too bad when you're rolling down the highway but those washboard roads in OK made it a lot worse. If I park my car in an off-camber spot it looks like one wheel is about to come off the ground. They barely move when I jack it up. But damn does she handle Lakeshore Dr. like a champ I'll leave them until they're worn out since they didn't cost me much. Next on the list is R32 brakes.You know... My raceland coils are kind of bouncy but not too stiff. I don't suffer from back pains so its hard to compare... I imagine a stiffer spring rate would make for a much sharper recoil which would kind of jolt everything... I loved my cup kit on my mk3 it was low enough and rode like a dream.. Nuepeed springs and billstein struts. My gti is bouncy with lots of recoil I guess. The struts drop 6 or so inches when you jack up the car...
