Congrats Eric!

CLICK HERE to read a little something about the man who has roots in Subaru and moved to VAG. A little backwards based on current trends in the club? Perhaps, but there are certainly no complaints here!

It was  a mistake made by us. We learned alot and it is life. I think it was actually for the better since that company is out of business now too. We weren;t making any money anyways. He also sued anotother small start up in NJ about an intake concpet and they also folded like we did. This particular gentleman and his wife spent alot of money to start this cool shop and it failed. Oh well. That was many years ago, and now I am glad i am not in that cut throat business.

Here's our other VW:

Hey! Cool write-up. Fascinating. I'm sure most of us had no idea you were so involved with the motorsports industry. Bummer about that patent.

Congrats and nice write-up.

Sucks about the patent BS. Some (most) companies would rather spend millions in litigation than share an idea.

Don't worry i will keep enlisting  you to help me spend money on the A4 and the Golf. We will be needing to spend a couple grand come spring. So hopefully you can help with that too.  Did the new toy for the TDi come in?  :D
