Hi Everyone, my name is Dylan, and I just picked up this Golf TDI. I am coming from a 2008 GTI. This is my first brand new car, so its kind of a big deal
I refuse to call this thread a 'build thread' because in all honesty, its not. It probably wont ever be, although maybe some day.
I figured it is more efficient to create a thread about my car, and when I add anything to it, I will simply update the thread.
I Bought from Fitzgerald Auto Mall in Annapolis, Maryland on 12.7.2011. Even though I live on the North Fork of Long Island, New York.

If anyone is selling any of these things, I'll be interested in buying.
I will be adding to this list as I find things I want, since I am pretty sure I am forgetting a bunch of things.
While many of these mods may not happen anytime soon, they are on the list. Mods will be done as funds become available. *End of the year bonus here I come!*
My plans are not to make a show car, but rather a clean, OEM+ daily driver.
Nothing special yet. Just iPhone pics. I will hopefully have some time this weekend to go out with the SLR and get some better ones. For now, these will have to do.

These headlights are literally why I bought the Golf with Technology package.

It was raining the day I picked up my car. How depressing.
50.4 mpg going 50mph by dylanhuber, on Flickr
After the 260 mile drive home from Maryland, I wasnt done driving. I continued to drive all the way to the tip of long island traveling around 50mph average for about 20 miles. This was my MPG.

Not the best pic, but maybe you can make it out.
Thats it for now. Will be updating early next week with pics of tint install and subwoofer install.
Thanks for reading!
