That beetle is a tramp. Won't let go of one hand before it latches on to another.:rofl:

Sighting

Postby Spidee » Thu Feb 12, 2004 6:53 pm

Today must have been one of the best days I've had in awhile. First, I went to Tracy VW to take pics of the R32 in stock. It was nice to see it in person for the second time. However, this visit was much more unique. Instead of having the sales guys swarm me, they were much nicer, calm, and they were'nt interogating me. When I told the sales guy I was there because my pics would go up on NorcalVW, the guy went and grabbed the store manager. To get down to the bottom of it. The store manager Shaun Petro, asked me to say good things about his store. This was because some guy last night went to try to get a car and got really upset because of no reason. So, the buyer gets pissed and starts getting out of hand saying he is going to post this upseting event on "VORTEX." Amazing...:D Second, as I was leaving the dealership I spotted a Jazz Blue AE. Its an elder woman with kids in the back with ice cream and mom in the front seat smoking a joint. So, I couldn't go up to invite her to Tracy's meet.:rolleyes: Third, after seeing that car, I was coming around the corner to my house, and saw an Imola Yellow AE! That guy was not reachable either. Once I saw him, he was gone. All this happened within 1hr today.

The End:clap:

tell them to give us club discounts and we'll say nothing but good things about them :)


What were you there? That is exactly what he offered me, discounts on service or parts on whatever. Oh, also if I needed anything, he would make sure he gave me good service.:D

What a trip that was.:hmm:

Yesterday at around 4pm, spotted a black 2002 GTI with a "turbo" emblem on the rear. He also had a norcalvw frame on his plate. This was on ElCamino and Sunnyvale/Saratoga. He showed the proper whats up etiquette. Nice ride whoever you are!

2 with one stone

Postby Spidee » Fri Feb 13, 2004 8:25 pm

Spotted a clean black MKIII with NorcalVW rear plates exiting on Hamilton Ave about 3:30pm.

As I was going down Hamilton, I saw Max, Inner_Nerd trying to pull out of a tire shop at the corner of Hamilton and Bascom with his new 20th AE wheels.:thumb: I honked at him and was probably thinking the guy behind him was honking.:rofl:

THAT'S WHO IT WAS! I thought someone was rushing me to get the F out. I wasn't pulling out of the tire shop, I was flipping a b*tch because I missed See's Candy. ;)
Gotta keep the woman happy. :baller:

Let me guess, Passat? Or work car/truck? I didn't even see you, I was so lost I couldn't find my own ass with a flashlight.

Wow, what I a sighting day. I live right on 19th ave in SF, and my turntables are in front of a window that looks out onto 19th, so while practicing today I saw a lot of dubs + more.

going down 19th towards SFSU I saw:
4:45pm Black MK4 GTI had some nice ooking wheels, from what I coudl tell looked like they had dish. it was hard to tell at your speed.

5:00pm Black B5 Passat with badgless grill and at least 3 people in the car

5:30pm Red TT with badgeless grill!

saw a Black MK3 GTI with headlight covers to make em look like dual rounds.

and a dark blue g60

Going Up 19th Towards GG Bridge
saw: 1 reflex silver MK4 GTI w/ back 3 windows tinted
1 Dark Blue MK4 GTI, might have been lowered
1 silverstone gray MK4 GTI, wheels & lower.


On top of that I saw two trucks with trailers, one had a porsche 996 w/ racing numbers on it, the other had a 944 or 951. Then I saw a 951 driving that had performance decals all over it, and then I saw a boxster with racing numbers on it hauling a small trailer that had a spare set of wheels and tires.

Anyone know if there was a porsche track event or something today?

I believe this guy 120%.
Tracy VW is one of the worse dealerships to do busneiss with.
This was my experiance.....


I orignally bought my 00 Gti from them. Back then (almost 3 years ago) they had a differnt sales manager. had a bit of hasle, but i got into my GTi paying what i wanted.

So i go back 1 1/2 years later looking for a new Passat. I told them what i could afford, and what i couldn't they came back with numbers i liked, so i told them i'd think about it. They said they could start the deal the next day, jusT that they needed to locate the car (they didn't have any 5-speeds in stock.) The next day i go in expexting to start sighning paper work. They tell me there having trouble finding a 5-speed in my color choice. I'm like "ok". So a couple days go by, and they call me telling me that they can't put me in a passat cause its to expensive. But get this......
for 600 more down, and $40 more a month he can get me into a loaded GLI Jetta, whitch costs almost 4K more than the passat i wanted!!!!!! I was WTF!!!!!!!!! And on top of that, the sales manager says that there no way he can put me into a Passat, and that no one else could beat his price. I just left.
I quick call to Hammer Lane VW telling them my situation, and what i can pay. I come down and deal with Dean (sales manager), and he asks what i can afford. I tell him and he comes up with numbers better than Tracy vw. And thst was for my PASSAT!! Once we shake hands, he starts to locate the car i want. Within ten minutes, he had 4 posibles in the area, and 2 in LA (it took TRACY 3 days to try and locate a car, with no luck:rolleyes: ). By the end of the week, i was in my passat (had to dealer trade, so it took a couple of days). So this guy is not off his rocker. Tracy VW is not the place to deal with when it comes to sales. they'll rape you the first chance they get.

If your looking to get into a new vw, i highly recomend Hammer Lane VW in Stockton. Ask for either Dean (sales manager) or Sahge ( Salesman) Both are great to work with, and won't B.S you. Tell them Brandon with the tricked out Passat sent you.:D

Sorry, didn't mean to high jack the tread!!
We now return you to you regualrly scheduled program.:p

P.S. Oh, and the best part, was roling back to tracy vw and showing the sales manager that "no one could beat his price" :D
He didn't know what to say when he saw me pull up!
