      I must say that color is sexy. That Jetta is super nice. Nice stable. Can't wait to sit my B7 next to my B6.
      My build.

      That color is sweet, I have a candy white SEL on order.

      Nice ride!!!!

      I saw a SEL in Opera Red with the beige leather and wood trim on a lot yesterday - absolutely beautiful color combo.

      Agreed, that dark red is SEXY!!

      Lets see some pics with the new wheels!

      In certain lighting the Opera Red seems to have a brown tint to it. Very nice ride.

      I saw an Opera Red one on the dealer's lot the other day. It really is a great color-rich looking and a great match for the style. Anyone seen Glacier Blue or Night Blue yet?

      I hear about this Formula One tint, the closest installer to Connecticut is 400 miles away in Maine, according to their website. Is it that good? Are their other tints with interior UV and Heat reduction out there? I'd like to do something similar to mine as well...

      Yes, I had Johnson Films InsulatorIR on my last car. Also there is Wincos, I think it looks blue on some cars. The TSER total solar energy rejection is the number you want to look at. Formula One's comfort series is actually a good value. The better TSER tint is worth a look hear in South Texas but I'll bet a quality film will do great that far north.

      4th mod already lol ?

      Tint
      Wipers
      Wheels
      and what ?

      As for the tint, huper optik is great too but much more $$$
      You can also look for the Llumar Air Blue 80, it's an 80% tint so almost clear with 78% VLT but rejects I think 43% heat (the 30% PI rejects 51%, 15% is 61% heat rejection) but it is almost clear with a light blue tint like Mercedes windows, so if you're not into the tinted look you can get that tint.

      Im going to test drive one today, went a couple of weeks ago but they had no manual, and until I drive it I will not order anything... The dealer has been calling me every week to book an appointment, but they had no cars, and plus when I went that first time they wanted my 06 at all costs... Without negotiating they came with a pretty decent deal...

      Will let you know today, but if I had a choice I would get it in the color you got... Opera red rocks....

      Tell me more about activating the rain sensing wipers. Do you need the VAG-com software and cable or is this something the dealer can do with there in-shop diagnostic equipment?
