Hey folks, I'm about to purchase a Golf R in Atlanta, but I am out of state. Anyone know of a mechanic who could go take a look at it before I travel to ATL to buy? Gracias.

Not sure about mechanics, but at Jimmy the Greek's request I'm going to go check it out on Wednesday for you

It's best very early mornings on the weekend or on weekdays if you can swing that
Just got some new tires on my GTI and I've been looking forward to driving this loop one weekend in October.

There are a few GTI owners that park in a parking garage of Ashford Dunwoody Rd. Chiming in to see if any of you are on this forum.

I work at The Terraces down near Ashford Dunwoody and Perimeter Center. Night blue GTI. Usually park on the 5th floor.

I'm definitely up for that, I've got all the time in the world as I'm still waiting for my work visa to come through 😂

Nice. And I used to work at perimeter summit maybe 8 years ago...before kids or hot hatches were even a twinkle in my eye. Lol

Just introducing myself. I picked up a new 2017 Autobahn from Nalley on the 12th of this month. Had a 2012 GTI Autobahn as well prior to that. This is pretty much my wife's and my commute car. Quite the upgrade from the previous mk6! Lovely machine. I am learning as much as I can about this car. This whole Obdeleven thing is intriguing and I am trying to see if it's something that could be beneficial to me.

I live in Cumming but frequent the Dunwoody and Midtown area for work. Hope to see you guys around.

It's a decent location, lots of parking. I'm curious as to what you do for a living.

Sounds good!


Sending PMS to both of you with my contact information. Lets try and meet around 11:30am, preferably a location that isn't too busy but good. There's a Newks around Perimeter Mall area. Perhaps we could meet for lunch Wednesday 25th, Next Week.

Welcome! You'll have fun with this car. Still gives me a grin from ear to ear. I've heard nothing but good things about Obdeleven. Let us know how you like it.

Thanks! What surprises me other than the fit and finish and the toys in the car compared to the mk6 is the acceleration in this car when I am already doing freeway speeds! Of course I have not floored it yet but a firm press of the pedal even in Normal driving mode and the car just takes off at a very rapid rate! I can't wait to cross 600 miles and give her the full beans

And yeah Obdeleven - planning on purchasing the app some time this weekend but would be great if I could borrow the bluetooth adapter from someone in Atlanta so I don't have to wait 3 weeks to tweak the settings in the car!!
