Hi all. I’m Linda, I just traded my beloved Mini Cooper Countryman in for a 2019 GTI SE . Great falls green is growing on me. It was that or white. We have a Golf and Golf TDI SEL in the family already. Loving it ,I just wish it was more customizable as far as desirable features go. I haven’t owned a car with manual climate since the 90’s??‍♀️
I’m learning a lot just reading this forum.

Kit here form Houston Tx. Joined the euro family with this 2009 charcoal GTI I purchased last year in April after my junk car was totaled from a rear end collision ( the car was still derivable, only a messed up trunk that can still close but the car was really old ) I got lucky with this GTI, . . . Stage 2 APR with a APR RCS back exhaust system. I wasn't looking for a car with mods, I was just looking for a hatchback car and found this GTI. Once I tested drive it I heard the blow off valve go off when I changed gears, It was a nice plus.

I have almost ZERO knowledge of mechanics. I have some basic understanding but not much. So with that there are a few issues with the car that I need to fix, like finding the oil leak, change out the ball joints on the front passenger, replace the headlight igniter, Oh and replace the clutch because that stage 2 chip is destroying the ( I think ) stock clutch. So I will be asking a lot of question on here ( forum not thread )

What.... you drive a GX3? Wow, post some pics and tell us story of how you acquired it.
For those of you unfamiliar, here is a pic of one. I would love to have one of these.

Howdy,
I'm Roy from the Richmond VA area. I just got my son (15) a 09 GTI 160k. I have a 63 Ragtop bug. I had a B6 Passat Komfort, 1990 Mexi Beetle, and a 1990 Triple White Cabriolet. Have a VW fetish for sure. Our car came out of NOVA and og was in NC. I'm just looking to gather info aid in repairs.

Thanks Roy

Long time listener, not first time caller. I was a member years ago but forgot my username so here I am again! 2008.5 GTI in United Grey in Reston, VA (NoVA). Have a handful of issues that I've been ignoring but now I really want to get the old girl back into awesome status.
