Watching the Olympics...
« on: February 11, 2006, 01:49:27 AM »
..did anyone catch the new GTI commercial?

Towards the end of the commercial...
girl: "Can we roll up the windows?  It's really hard to hear, it's messing up my hair, ....[blah, blah, blah]"
guy: "It's really hard to hear the sound of my engine with all your yakking."

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...Megan hit me.

Well, I'll keep trying to find the video.  I'll post it here if I do.  It's part of their new "fast" campaign, which, to the best I can tell, is an evil little figure that embodies the spirit of the new GTI (fast).  I saw another one later on where the GTI had been pulled over...humorous, but not nearly as much as the first.

I really want a Fast.
Unfortunately only 600 were made and given to each dealership.  They go for over $100 on eBay.

I'd guess I have to make do with my evil imaginary Fast.

Anyone that gets a new mk5 GTI gets one in the mail.

So you just need to find someone locally that doesn't want that is getting a GTI... give them $20 for it or something.

cool, I'm sure we'll see more on eBay from new GTI V buyers.

www.vw.com finally has the GTI V on their site and you could build one to your liking.  Unfortunately you can't get it in that awesome retro tartan cloth interior with many of the options.

Alright - I am looking into getting my hands on some of these "Fast's" :twisted:

If I can get them I will let you all know and maybe I can do a GB.  I am sure they will be popular, so we will have to see.

Wish me luck!

I wish you lots of luck.  I'm seeing them go for over $150 on ebay right now.  I'm definitely in if you find them.
