I know a lot of you dont like the stance look, but i had a blast at the show. I am still shocked as hell that Tara Evans didnt place, her beetle is beautiful. As far as VW's go, here is the ranking:

Best Euro - Jackson (green S4 Dorbritz Designs)
Best VW - Tommy XXXX (white jetta)
1st Place - Ross (black passat)
2nd Place - JD (silver turbo-s)
3rd place - Dillon (white bug)

and heres what little crappy out of focus pics i took:

















and then my car set up:

From the looks of things; I get the feeling, this isn't the first time you have been to the rodeo, so to speak (or shown a car @ shows/events). Man, those Audi's sure look mean! I really like the addition of that rear wing cover! So, whats next on the list, of cool goodies for the Turbo S?

By the way, has P3Cars.com; gotten back with you about producing their, Vent Integrated Digital Interface? While a little spendy; it would be a great addition to any car! :) Plus, did you get those new wheels yet?

UPDATE: just emailed P3Cars.com and this was their response: "XXXXXX, We are finished with software dev for this car and are hoping for a August release . Feel free to check back or follow us on Facebook or instagram for more up to the minute updates.

Cheers,
XXXX"

Yea they arent finished with it yet.

wheels... man its taking a beating on me. im so undecided and if you dont go big these days you might as well go home. a lot of the cars that won had "bags and wheels" and that was it.

i mean the car that beat me had bags and $5000 wheels. i guess $5000 wheels beats out full carbon interior, FMIC, stage2, 3" turbo-back exhaust, air bags and yadda yadda yadda.

they said i put a lot of work into my display and how the car was set up. so i guess experience helped me out. ;)

In many ways; it maybe, a reflection of the "bagged" car culture, which seems to be "more show" then, "go"? I also think; that a Mark IV VW and bugs, a New Beetle; for that matter, probably hasn't been seen much at events! So, they may not even recognize the amount of work or uniqueness; you have added to your New Beetle? What say you?

the judges did for sure or i wouldnt have placed. when i asked when i was going to get judged they asked which car.

when i said "the silver beetle" they were like, "oh the one with bags and the suspension showing off? with the podium and the carbon interior? yea we jusge t last night. nice car man."
