      I'm in No. Va. Have a RBM sunroof/navi on order; was hoping to have it already but various delays suggest it will be a few more weeks.

      2012 Golf R
      02-26-2012 09:35 AM #44
      Picked up 2dr DBM w/nav at Fitzgerald Annapolis 2 weeks ago today. I almost bought a GTI Autobahn (4 door CW) at King VW same day but they low-balled my trade so badly I walked out. I had been told that there would be no R without a wait. Walked into Fitzgerald and drove out a few hours later. Fitzgerald's website had the car marked as 'sold car' but apparently the deal didn't go through. So I had really just gone there to see what they had. I made a remark to the salesman about 'I want a Golf R but I don't want to wait' and he just replied 'you don't have to'.

      I guess I need to pop a couple of photos. What I'm really missing at the moment is rain-sensing wipers and auto-headlights. Which is silly I know, but once you get used to 'not thinking about something' it's a bit of an adjustment to have to remember again.

      Just got over the 1k break-in threshold yesterday, and the engine does seem to have loosened up where it really wants to push past 2/3 of red-line so I'll have to go for a drive today and push it a little bit.

      I finally got to sit in one this past week when I went to pick up my mkvi GTI . I want one soo bad, but @ $38,000 sticker it was wayy out of my budget. Probably will get one in a couple years.

      I've been commuting up 270 thru Montgomery County from DC just about every day in my wife's CW 4 door for the last week or so, except when she was doing a detail and wax on it for a couple of those days her car is my DD while I anxiously await my RBM 2 door...

      Just spotted a 2-Door rising blue R at the intersection of Cherry Hill Road and Broadbirch Dr in Colesville. Didn't notice if it had a sunroof or not.

      I was in my 2007 GTI and they spotted me at the same time I spotted them.

      You ordered yours back in July, yes? I'd considered going with Lindsay in December but was concerned they wouldn't have a car for me for a loooong time. Sounds like that concern was valid, if they're just getting to cars ordered in July.

      Of course, it's not like I have my car yet, either. So who knows? But hopefully it made the boat it was supposed to get on.

      2012 VW CSG 4-dr Golf R
      03-19-2012 09:20 PM #66
      Near Ft Meade, MD. Can't post pics right now, but if you go over to the Golf R picture game thread you'll see two photos I posted. I'll post on here next week when I'm back home. Bought my first VW in January, a 2012 GLI Autobahn w/ Nav.. Really love that car, but ultimately I decided I wanted the AWD the R has so I traded up last week for the Carbon Steel Gray 4 dr. I was fortunate to even get it as the dealer had to trade a couple of his cars to another dealer for it.

      I love everything about it... I'm out of town all week without it..

      Ohai. Bill here, 2-door RB sunroof + nav. Richmond area.
      440 million years ago there was an ice age that lasted 500,000 years. Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide levels were an order of magnitude higher than today. When you can explain that, I'll get serious about reducing my carbon footprint. Until then, I'm keeping the car.
