I'm new to the group, and I'm hoping to make some of the winter cruises. Not the first, of course. I'll be too busy yelling at the television.
Hopefully I won't get too many snickers from the still stock GTI.

Nope, always more the merrier, also depending on who comes out, you can see alllllll of the different options for things you can do to it to make it less stock.

Also, for those that might be concerned about food options given the names of most of our destinations (Beef, Brats, BBQ), don't fear! All of the destinations have vegetarian options.

make sure you put on some washing mits/gloves because you might poke/scrape your hands with rust then your going to need a tetanus shot ...my great grand papi died of that tetanus back in the days from traveling on ships from portugal ...word! that's why i hate rust so much :realmad:

I'm on winter set up on my Golf too, changed the front lip for more clearance and added mud/snow flaps. I won't be able to make it tomorrow cuz my car has a small oil leak plus we got the B3 back tonight and it needs full detail in and out.

I really hope to make it for the next cruise. Going to invest into winter tires, I kept my old wheels so just need to buy tires. The wheels are all in terrible shape, but perfect for winter with the snow, salt and dirt. Need to start looking at what I want to do to my car for next year. Christmas is coming and maybe can get my dad to buy me something. Definitely putting a new stereo on my list, want to be able to play my Ipod in the car. Hope we have good weather in December for the cruise!

If you're looking for 18" winter tires I know a local guy selling some blizzaks in stock R32 size.

I was going to hit Tire Rack, they have a set of Pirelli Winter Sottozero Serie II for $183 each or the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-60 for $198. Was just trying to choose between the two. Tired of going thru winters sliding all over and keep hearing predictions of lots of snow this year. If I lived closer, would take up your local guy, but not sure how I could deal with it since takes awhile to swap out the tires. If my dad did not have a busted arm, I could just get the new tires put onto my wheels and then mount them at home to save time, but no can do right now. I so wished I lived more in the Chicago area but will see you guys hopefully on the next cruise day.

Well I can talk to my local guy and see if he'd be willing to ship possibly. They're nearly brand new blizzaks too

Question about the Chicago cruise

Does that happen before or after eating at the restaurant?
