Lehigh Valley Owners?

Just curious - any GTI/R Owners in the Lehigh Valley frequent these boards?

I'm just south of center valley. I've been seeing a few more R's in the area as of late. I have a lowered Lapiz if you guys see me around!

I'll have to check this out next time I'm out that way; thanks for the heads up.

I'm fairly new to the area (from Philly suburbs) and see a few mk7's around, typically on 309. Always passing the opposite way a gray or black GTI w/ aftermarket headlights as it has the double "u's" for DRL's

There's a cars and coffee in the morning at the steel stacks (9/17). It's truck and Jeep themed, but still should be a good time.

Anyone know/trust any good shops in the Lehigh Valley? I'm pretty confident doing most bolt-ons, but swapping my clutch has me a little worried and I might prefer to pay someone to do it. I only moved here 2 years ago and used to use my grandfather's shop for everything, so I have yet to find a trusted mechanic in the area.

About an hour south of the Valley if I remember correctly.

I'm in Catasauqua. '17 GTI SE CSG. Stock currently but I have some goodies in transit right now.

Anyone know of a self service shop in Lehigh Valley? Like somewhere you can rent lift time?

I have some parts coming that would be way easier to install on a lift and I prefer to do work myself when possible.

Been browsing the forums a while but finally joined. '17 GTI SE Pure White DSG

I'm in Nazareth/Easton area.

Stock for now, looking to pick up a winter wheel set asap and some light tints very soon. Can anyone recommend a local tint shop? First class tint in nazareth is close so was thinking to check them out.

Would also be interested like post above about a self service space to work on the car

First class tint did great work on my GTI. I would recommend them. PM me if you want to check mine out in person. I'm also in Nazareth.
