      It seems like we are getting a new rush of new owners. Please post your car, if you have any mods, please post them as well. Hopefully we can keep one big thread with photos of our cars. I'll post mine as soon as I get it.

      Hmm, weird, dropbox links don't work either. How about posting a link to the car lounge? or if you don't mind, I can download your pics and post them here.

      Max legal in Texas is 25% VLT. Dealer did the tint as part of the deal, not sure of the brand.

      1.) I have NEVER like a red/maroon color on ANY car- until I saw the Opera Red which is just gorgeous

      2.) is there a single color these cars DON'T look great in? Colors I wouldn't have never considered such as the Opera or the light blue even look great on these things! I'm negotiating on a Midnight Blue SE myself- color looks fantastic in the light, black at night, will be a pain to clean, but I'm sick of white for a while

      Funny you mention Opera Red and Glacier Blue. They turned out to be the two colors I wouldn't get. I actually ordered Opera Red and then when I saw it in person, changed to black. The Opera Red has a bias toward purple. Over the years, as it fades, it will look more and more purple.

      About a month ago a VWGoA corporate car went by me in Glacier Blue. Was a bit too much like sky (Tarheel) blue. Not a bad color, just too light for my taste.

      Also on the subject of colors, I just had a corporate TDI SEL with 6000 mi. come in to my shop with Cornsilk Beige interior. The Dynamica inserts were filthy and actually brownish looking. That will be an area that requires regular upkeep.

      Keep it coming guys! I will finally pick up mine tomorrow afternoon, so I'll be able to post a pic. The dealership is 230 miles away, so I'll be taking the train in the morning and the dealer will pick me up at the station.

      Really like this car and it will look even better with a moderate drop. Black was not even on my list and it happens to be the only available color with the configuration I wanted. I end up getting the car and now I think is one of the best looking colors in the passat, the car really looks good in almost every color!
