      I've got mine on order! Does anyone have any plans to do this upgrade:
      http://youtu.be/1OHsikmWMKs to put it at 350hp? I've never driven one and I'm afraid it's not going to feel fast enough. I drove the GTI Autobahn, but it felt wicked slow. I know the R has 56 more hp, but the AWD makes it a lot heavier right?

      2012 RB Golf R
      04-29-2012 04:39 AM #759
      I am a week late on updating my delivery status..

      Picked my RB 4-Door on April 21st, 2012 from Southtowne VW in Salt Lake City.
      The staffs there had been amazing since the day I decided to order the R from them, there was an update call from them every Monday till I picked up the car (Great people, great service!)

      They walked me through the entire process of getting the car ready for delivery, and I was able to drive the fully wrapped car into service area, unwrap the car and top of the fluids, etc...
      I am a HAPPY man after 8 months of waiting...

      Here are some pics from the day of delivery:

      no one touched the car until I got there:


      unwrapping the car


      bottom, looks like nothing is missing for me





      DRL and HID are AMAZING

      With everything going on, I wound up taking the car in my least wanted color choice (Deep Black), but all things considered, it's still a wonderful car--however, keeping it clean is going to be more work than I was hoping.

      According to PWL, my 2d, RB left Emden on 5/26 and is enroute aboard the Nippon Hwy...s/b in Davisville on 5/7.

      The $64K questions are:
      a) How long is the passage from Emden to Davisville? Any chance it'll get here early??
      b) Once it gets there, how long should it take from port arrival to dealer delivery in NH?

      My VWhub update says: 'Release to Carrier' 5/15...does it really take a week to clear customs?
      Obviously I'm hoping they're hedging their bets with liberal dates and it shows up early...

      Took delivery of my RB 4-Door w/ nav yesterday. Absolutely loving it so far. Just threw on the painted reflectors I had ordered from John@FTC5. They came out great and make a huge difference. Thanks John! Have some other things planned in the near future such as tint, APR stage 1, Euro-R springs, Euro tails and Neuspeed RSe14 in gunmetal. Will keep you guys updated.

      Not the RB I had on order, and crappy photography on my part, but thrilled to get this CSG beauty, and be enjoying it 6-8 weeks sooner!

      I am one happy owner!

      2012 Golf R, 2012 GTI (wife)
      05-06-2012 01:20 PM #770
      So I took a test drive of the 2012 Golf R yesterday...and put down a deposit! Not something I planned on doing, but glad I did. My wife had made an appointment for me after I mentioned earlier in the week that I wanted to test drive one. She picked up a 2012 GTI @5 months ago and every time I drive it I like it more. After pulling away from the lot on the test drive, it instantly reminded me of my beloved but long gone 2004 R32...which is what I was hoping for!

      I had tested several cars over the last month but wasn't sold on any of them for a variety of reasons;

      - Mini Clubman S and JCW: Nice interior, decent performance, WAY TOO MUCH torque steer
      - Subaru WRX and STi: Down with the performance, not sold on the looks, interior leaves much to be desired
      - Audi A3: Smaller version of my current ride (A4 Avant 2.0T quattro), still has me wanting for more
      - Volvo c30: Like the look, but everything else is meh.

      I wanted to stick with hatchbacks as I haul around lots of stuff, including double/upright basses and Rottweilers Needless to stay I'm very excited about getting the R in a few weeks (Danbury CT VW). They had a black one in stock and while nice looking, but I'm not big on owning black cars. It turned out that they had a 4 door Carbon Steel already en route from overseas, which is supposedly the last one they are getting for 3-5 months (who really knows though). It's the full package model, which I was really only interested in because of the potential difference in the stereo. IMO the Dynaudio turned out to be a very noticable difference from the base stereo in my wife's GTI. It will be nice to not lose a sunroof (from the Audi). I don't really care about the nav but I do like the interface better than my wife's GTI.

      Regardless, I've got a R now with my name on it and I'm very excited to be back in the VW family! Even better is that it turned out I actually had equity in my Audi, so between that and selling my bike (25th anniversary Buell XB-12Ss) I'll still be paying less $$$ a month on autos, and be much more happy driving

      Picked mine up Monday. A few pictures:







      First VW for me. Ended up getting my name on an unold order en route about a month ago at Cumberland Valley Motors in Mechanicsburg. Good people there, reasonable pricing, and they told me they have another unsold Rising Blue 4-door loaded on the water now.

      Congrats - liking the 4 door choice. What car(s) are you coming from, comparison?

      Thanks. My last car was a 2004 Mazda 6, V6 w/ 5-speed. It was fun to drive, handled well, ok on gas and cheap to insure. I always wished I had spent the extra money and got the Speed 6 though.

      This is my first turbocharged car and the biggest difference to me is how quickly the car makes power in the mid to upper RPMs compared to my old NA Mazda.

      This was a bit of an impulse buy. I was pretty well set on a 2012 Volvo S60 T6 when I happened to test drive a 2-door R at my local dealership and loved it. The S60 is a great car imo and really a pretty good value compared to a 3-series. Without a manual though, it just doesn't involve the driver as much, and the R does that very very well.
