This is the official thread for Golf R deliveries and drooling by other members who don't have their yet.
I got a text from my dealer this morning telling me that my car's status has updated and the car is now on a truck. So I stopped by the dealership at lunch and met the salesman for the first time (all of our correspondence thus far has been via text/phone/e-mail).
The car should be here Wednesday! And to make things ever better, I'm getting 1.9% financing assuming the credit application comes back good (not going to be a problem, obviously). Pretty excited!
SCRIBBINS FROM BOSTON MASS! Congrats Dude! You are the first Vortexian with a Registered USA Spec R to post his pictures (make that one picture) of his new ride!
Now we would like to see more once it's all detailed and purdy.... good going!
PS: To Mod.. Ok I moved it here like you asked... but since Scibbins was asked to post better pictures other than just one from the rear, off color in a shop on the other thread... it's only fair that we keep it going, plus we would also like to know how it drives, feels, his first impressions etc etc!

Had mine ordered for a while now, was waiting to take delivery in March/April.... Turns out the local dealership had an un-sold order of the exact same specs (2 door Blue Loaded) coming tonight. I already signed the papers, take delivery tomorrow morning.
There will be an un-sold Loaded 2 door Rising blue at Garnet VW in PA around April

Considering they can unload the entire boat in less than a day and the drive from RI to NY is like 3 hours, I don't see why I couldn't take delivery of my car by Friday of next week if it gets unloaded Monday of next week. We'll see, though.
I sat in an unsold R today in Winston-Salem and the seats were AMAZING. I've sat in Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches... the seats in an R are just as good or better than any of these.
