Congratulations Steve.  What's is going to be the first big mod?

XM sucks


I agree with that.  I have Sirius and a couple friends of mine have XM.  XM has good comedy station, otherwise I can't find anything.

And you will see a few.  All dealers in the US got an allotment of these GLI's.  Most dealers were given 2 GLI's to start with.  1 manual trans, and 1 DSG, all with package 2 options (climatronic, etc).  Some got black, and some got Salsa Red.  These are the first two colors to hit US shores, so most dealers have the same car.

And, I live in Charleston, SC.

Tint, aspherical tinted mirrors, coilovers, and maybe spacers or something.

You know, its a shame because I cant seem to just switch without getting a new satelite reciever/module.  And if I heard correctly, its a $500 part to switch.   :evil:

I saw your twin at McDonalds VW yesterday.  Exactly like yours and she was looking sweet.  I think you are right, pictures do not do this car justice, she is very red!  I think you have made a great purchase and I would imagine you are have a great time.  Congratulations.
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

Thank you.  It is truely a car you have to see in the flesh to really appreciate the color.  Im somewhat disappointed that there is no pearl tint to the paint, but the Salsa Red is pretty nice.

Thanks again, it truely is a joy to drive.
