      Finally got mine today. Ordered back in early December. Mine is apparently the 2nd one that Alexandria VW delivered; the 3rd is a CSG 4 door that should be arriving soon (wave if you are on the forum).

      No pics because it is dark, but it's a Rising Blue 4 door, with nav and roof, not unlike the many others that have been posted.

      Oh, and I won the tire lottery and got the Pirellis. It had 17 miles on it when I first drove it, 21 when I signed the papers.

      It's hard to believe I've had this car on order for five months and this is the first time I actually was able to get behind the wheel of one. It's certainly fun so far; my overall impressions are that the gearing in first is short short short, the engine has plenty of power as long as you give it a moment for the revs and boost to build, and it's gruff and growly in a way that my previous turbo VAGs haven't been (an 02 GTI and an 06 A4).

      I like it.

      I took delivery of a CW 4-door yesterday, from Lindsay. Will get some pics up soon

      @Golf-UR - I think I tried to exchange for your RB, before pulling the trigger on mine Saw one listed, didn't know if it was spoken for.

      BTW, for those keeping score:
      - My VW came with Pirellis.
      - Took delivery with 14 miles on the odometer.
      - Lindsay does NOT pre-drill the front bumpers I'll need to pick up a tow hook mount soon.

      Also, there are 2 4-dr RB Base, and one CW 2-dr (I think) Sunroof/Nav remaining as of yesterday evening.

      Stay away!

      Lindsay has three cars sitting on the lot?

      Alexandria did pre-drill the bumpers, but I had a towhook mount on my M3 and got kind of sick of it. The plate was always getting bent and knocked off-kilter. I hate having the holes (and the front plate), but maybe as I'm aging I'm getting soft.

      The one I ordered was spec'd to be red before I put a deposit down on it and had them change it to RB. The red ones I've seen have made me question whether that was the right move. Enjoy!

      Who was your salesmen? I may have had something to do with non-drilling. I picked up my 4 dr CSG last week from Lindsay and had reminded Mike Ewing so many times not to drill bumper .. maybe he applied to other new deliveries. I put the USMillworks tow hook on and works great.

      Bought from Harry. Would have gone through Alfonso but he was on vacation.
      I swear though, most of 'em were drilled. Look at VWFORLIFE's photos, you can see the front plates on.

      Correct. There were 4 for sale, but 7 on the lot when I was looking last Saturday. BTW it really gets my goat that Corporate is even able to get a 'limited' car like the Golf R - not to mention more than one. The RB loaded I wanted? Corporate. Then when I was there yesterday, I parked next to ANOTHER loaded RB with manufacturer tags on it.

      Ah well, CW is pretty sweet

      Lookin good man! I'm thinking about going with H&R also.. not sure if I want to do coilovers or H&R sport springs/shocks combo.

      I really like the black vinyl top on CW btw.

      Thank you sir! I was 50/50 on the black top but I figured I'd try it. Get the coils, I was iffy on going ultra lows due to no adjustable dampening, but it handles wonderfully.

      So. . .I'm getting on a group-buy for some LED tail-lights. Which is against everything I believe in as I'm ordering them before I actually have my car (I know, seems to be common-place here) which should hopefully come next week.

      Anyway, I'm going to get the ones with the rear-fog.

      First, I guess this will require another headlight switch that can control the rear fog. But, I also want the automatic headlights as well. So, I'm going to order this:
      http://www.bold-sport.com/store/inde...product_id=166

      Anyone in the DC area willing to help me to figure out/program it to actually work together? I could probably figure it out if I had the Vagcom thing. . . but I think the programming, plus whatever needs to be done with moving wires around is whats intimidating me.


      Thanks, and hope to one day be a part of the club. . . and not the broken clutch club.

      Current mkiv R32 owner, looking to move up to csg 4 dr R in a couple weeks. Located in Baltimore and would like to see a R in person. If anyone is in my area and willing to let me check out (don't need to drive) your R please let me know.
