      I stopped at the VW dealer to test drive a new 2012 GLI Autobahn, and saw this base GLI in the apparently rare Frost Silver Metallic.

      Sorry for the phone camera quality pics.









      It looked really good in person, better than most silver cars. I still prefer the Tornado Red that I drove and the Candy White, though.

      I love that Frost Silver is finally showing up. I hope that they fixed whatever quality control issues they were having... guess we won't know for sure for 6-10 years though

      BTW... look how similar the Jetta and Passat's lines are in the first picture. It's almost impossible to tell that the gray car behind the silver GLI isn't a Jetta. The only clue that I had was the slight difference in the shape of the marker reflector. All of the other visible body lines in the front appear to be nearly identical. I didn't realize that these cars had that much in common. It's not necessarily a bad thing though; it reminds me of the MkI-MkII days when the cars visually shared a lot more than they have for the past several generations.

      As of 7/31/12, I found one in my driveway as well. I haven't seen another one in Frost Silver in the southeastern PA or central NJ or southern NJ areas at all.
