Is she on Vortex? Tell her to check out our thread, Girls with Golf Rs.
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.

Def need to order a pair!
Just heard back from sales person at Lindsay. Looks like my car is in transit from the factory! I'm assuming 3-4 more weeks..
APR Stage 1+ / APR HPFP / Forge TwinTake / Forge DV / H&R Sport Springs / H&R Spacers (rear) 15mm / OEM Beetle Turbo Mats / OEM Tinted LED Tails / Interior LEDs / Bold Sport R seat inserts / SunTek CXP 35% Tint / Thule Roof Rack (Aeroblades + 594XT Sidearm)
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.
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.
