Stance is the new Rice and all about form over function. I admit it looks good though, way better than the 90's rice that's for sure.

the VW scene is all about Bags n Wheels nothing else .. kind of sad
*K04 on Board*
That's why I never go to meets, and have moved to mk1's and older dubs. Now it's all about spending a couple g'S in a shop to get aired and overpriced vwvortex hyped wheels and you call it a day.
I remember when plastic welding your own badgless grill was the shit....now any "mon père est riche en Tab." kid thinks he's god's given gift to the euro scene cuz he's at the top of the trend following pyramid.
Any one who remembers Emiel's nimbus gray mk3 out of the UK will know what I mean.
And it's not to be elitist or diss the scene because there are alot of GREAT cars and GREATER folks around. Maybe it's just an age thing too.....I remember being wowed by rice buckets 15 years ago....luckily i found the light of reason shortly after

Started the VW Scene in 81' stopped around 92'
Got back in it in 08;
What I like in the oldskool, is we talk about specs, technical stuff, ideas, and debate on views on ideas.
Now it seems, that people talk about people, and what they do to their cars...
I'm in for a built not bought meet; this is what is happening in most of the local meets, Julep is still there, and I still attend once in a while, but local meets, and track days, thats where its at for me!
OP; thanks for opening this thread!

Pete!!! Je te comprends à 100% et je croyais être le seul à penser ça. Le bon vieux temps des dubaholics, les soirers avec les Anthony, Kosta, Phil, Fernando, Jason, etc. J'ai que 25 ans, mais j'étais impliquer dans la scène depuis mes 15-16ans. Lets bring back the old Dubholics crew!!
Haven't been there in a while... I remember going in my daily driver which was an MK4 Golf TDI since my weekend car was being detailed and was having some springs put on... anyways, the TDI had a burnt tail light that I didn't know about... obviously some guy had to point it out to his friends and try to make a joke out of me, instead of politely letting me know and not being a faggot about it. I mean I wasn't there to show off in a bone stock Golf with tints I was just there to chill with some people that I knew were there that night. I came back a week later in my MK6 GTI and thank god I see the same guy again, so I parked next to his car and I was like "hey dude look I replaced my burnt tail light, looks fresh huh?" and he had a blank look on his face and didn't know what to say. I don't know if he posts on here but it was a dark purple mk2 jetta with 1000000 stickers on his car and OBVIOUSLY had a shocker on his bumper

^^^^oh man.... c'était vraiment le bon vieux temps....
^^you were probably 14 at the time... like me. lol
I used to be more into japanese cars (before they became JDM cars), but I still remember going to Julep on Tuesdays just to see what was being made on the ''other side'' back in '05 (hey, that's my youth, don't laugh). I can still remember Bruce's orange MK3 rear-mounted turbo VR6 burning off on the street between McDies and Julep, before getting away from the teased-up cops in a glory-and-smoked-filled pull away going south on Decarie....that marked me!
Ces temps-ci les gens pensent que je veux courser quand je leur fais un ''peace'' en les passant...
Ever since i sat in my 03 GLI VR6 24V i always wanted to feel what is was like to be apart of that family vw scene. WHen it got scrapped on the highway and i got a GTI, I always told my wife i wanted to rebuild a MK2 GTI and bring her and the baby to the meets. Now im embaressed to go cause all i see are people who try to show off who has the deeper pocket. Sure I would love to have ROTIFORM's but i guess im doing something wrong when the 18yr old who works at McDee's has them on his mk4 gti. Im Hopeing that one day i can find a crew that can be a family and will actually want to hang around and have a few drinks. I hate talking with Dubbers who are barely old enough to drive and discuss some cool things to do to my GTI. Maybe i want to spend the money and put a quatro on it and make my own R-GTI, maybe i dont want to chop up an R32 cause i just think that theres not enough of em to rip em apart.
