My wife ordered a GLI a couple of months ago and it finally came in on today's truck! My brother is a VW Master Tech and will be doing the PDI on Monday so we can take delivery. Can't wait to get behind the wheel! Plans for it aren't finalized but a cupkit & APR Stg2 is a stong possibility. Its my wife's DD so it'll be up to her how far she wants to go with it. Its really a nice, complete package right from the factory though :thumbup:

Our GTI Driver's Edition meeting the Edition30 GLI for the first time


I know some hate the stripe, but I love it. Cool update to tie-in to the MkVIIs


Our son approves




Our salesman is on the ball :thumbup::laugh:

Nice looking car, love the wheels.
Thanks! I like the Lagunas a lot - we have the same wheels on our Driver's Edition GTI. I didn't realize until seeing them side by side though that the GLI has them in silver rather than the anthracite on the GTI. Eventually I'd like to upgrade to some lightweight 18x8" RSe12's with some nice summer tires though :beer:

if you ever decide to sell either of those lagunas ill take em off your hands lol. i love that edition 30 and i really like that de gti . i love the cw on them and im cracking up about your note to the dealer. i think they make you sign some contract that says you wont blame them if something happens due to no plate, but sometimes they do it anyway just to be safe. like they did with mine. after i told them 12x not too.. lol enjoy the new car.

I like the Lagunas but I like them better in anthracite compared to the silver. Hubby is still showing me options. I do really like the RSe12s in gunmetal. We will definitely keep you in mind if we decide to sell the Lagunas in the near future.

The salesman took it upon himself to put the note on the car and all the paperwork when I stressed to him that it was important and that we would bring our own license plate bracket to attach to the tow hook. My brother-in-law will PDI the car on Monday and probably won’t let anyone else touch it lol. When we went in yesterday to check it out and talk to the salesman he didn’t mention any additional contracts or anything like that. Maybe that's a state specific thing? Or maybe because we are bringing a bracket its a nonissue.

Super excited to finally have my first OWNED VW! :heart:

Nice looking 30th

Car looks good, I'm enjoying the hell out of my 30th edition with APR stage 1, H&R SS coil overs should be shipped next week (ordered the first of March). Two trips to Vegas (thanks to [email protected] etektuning), one to Sacramento (Bugorama) and another trip to the Santa Cruz beach boardwalk.


Hope you enjoy as much!
By the way... I told dealer not to put front plate on or I didn't want the car:laugh: sales manager handed me the bracket when I drove off of the lot!

I've had my White 30th just over 2 months & love it! I do like the Lagunas in the other colors besides the silver. I wish there was a little more contrast with the wheels on the white. I really like the black accented lagunas that are on the 35th GTI.

Nav or no?
6MT or DSG?

I have the Nav / DSG combo & haven't missed the MT yet.


Enjoy your new GLI!!!

Thanks everyone! Sorry I still haven't gotten any decent pictures. We have the house all pulled apart trying to get it ready for baby #2 and somehow I've misplaced my digicam in the shuffle. I did take a crappy pic for IG of our current stable when we brought the car home though.

Yup, Navigation + DSG. I love manuals but my wife doesn't drive them. The DSG is amazing for daily use anyway. I recently tried the launch control on our DSG GTI for the first time and couldn't stop smiling :laugh:
