    Your reply should've been 'If your VW's check engine light DOESN'T come on then there is an issue'

    People or companies that hold onto websites and say that they're available and they'll give you a quote.
    I submitted for a quote on a website and they sent me a reply that they'd sell it to me for $7506!
    I replied with ........ "HAHAHAHAHAHA are you f*cking serious!?!? HAHAHAHAHAHA"

    WSDOT. Millions invested in 'smart highways'. Result? worse traffic. On my way home tonight, I find the billboard on I-5 in Everett NB illuminated with the statement 'Its the law! Flashing light mean slow down and move to the right'. Needless to say, there were no flashing lights, but everyone slowed down to 20MPH below the speed limit and created a backup to Everett Mall. WTF?? If you are going to copy Europe, you have to copy ALL of it. They do not have large quantities of police on the road pulling people over for taillights out and speeding!

    I was bored doing some researching and surfing around and thought i'd check up on a domain name.
    Some company named buydomains.com is holding onto it.

    I picked my girlfriend up from the airport late last night. On the way home on i-5 we hit 128th and it was blocked by police. About 1/8th of a mile there was a reader board that said 'EXPECT DELAYS ROLLING SLOWDOWNS'. Not even a 1/4 of a mile after that sign two WSP cars & a couple of cube vans swoop out 5 cars ahead of me with lights flashing slowing everyone down. We drove about 5mph for about 10 minutes until we got off on the 112th carpool exit.

    Obviously most people couldn't get off since they probably only had one person in the car.

    Any ways we kept driving north via surface streets checking out the free way and entrances at various points. EVERY exit and entrance and exit was closed.

    Shit was crazy... to make matters more crazy... i talked to a guy today that got stuck at one of the blocked entrances. He said once that huge pile of traffic caught up they unblocked the entrance and let everyone joing to the 5-10mph traffic. But every exit they went by was closed..

    What the hell is that about? Intentionally creating traffic late at night?

    i feel lucky the carpool exit wasn't blocked... we would've been on the freeway for hours.

    they usually do rolling slowdowns for investigation or construction purposes. They have their reasons

    When i called WSP they wouldn't tell me why. I think they were doing it S. Bound too because it was empty as well.

    The part that really got me was blocking exits.. Why not let people get off.

    Why don't people read wtb threads before they respond to them! I can not even count the amount of people that have responed to my wtb thread in the mkii classifieds on vortex and have not had the right part that I am looking for. Then they argue with me and tell me I don't know I am talking about when I nicely tell them that it is not what I am looking for! I even posted a picture of the correct part!

  19. #369
    yeah.. wtb threads are usually either ignored, or misread

    I just bought falsleyadvertised.com. It'll be a site where people can post up things that aren't as advertised.

    Customer brings car in for oil warning light on (b5.5 1.8t)
    Says the warning light only comes on when driving down the freeway. We tell him that we would prefer NOT to duplicate the symptom and advise for an oil pressure check with a gauge. Customer says ok. We check it and its good (shocking, I know). NExt step as per the TSB for his car relating to EXACTLY what he is describing involves checking the cam bearing caps for galling/scoring. Customer says ok. Checked the cam bearing caps and advise customer that we are now comfortable driving the car on the freeway to duplicate the symptom. Customer calls the dealer and SOMEHOW gets it in his mind that the dealer told him that it is only $125 to tell him what the problem is. Yup, the dealer apparently can diagnose in one hour EXACTLY what his problem is. We call the dealer he called to verify his statement. Dealer then tells us that its $125 MINIMUM and they plan to pull the oil pan first. Apparently checking for proper oil pressure is not something they do first... they do the hardest thing first. They said that if there wasnt sludge in the oil pan that the next step is to check oil pressure..

    Customer shows up today and says that he is now NOT going to pay for the diag time because we didnt find the problem. He also states that if we dont give him $200 off of his bill that he is going to call the BBB and write negative reviews all over. I was so pissed that I almost told him to get the fook out of my shop and he better come back with the cops and enough money to cover the bill that he approved..

    Today was a shitty day. Ended up giving the $200 'discount' on the premise that after the dealer diagnoses his problem in one hour that he will return to have us do the work.. somehow I think he lied...

    Chris, **** that guy. It sucks to deal with people like that. No common sense. That dealership doesn't help either. Which one was it?
    It's not like I ever go to dealerships to get work done on my car, but note to never go through that one for anything.
