      Yep, bought a Tornado Red base car. We had gone in with the intention of ordering a sunroof car but he had the base car in stock and made us an offer we couldn't refuse. I promised I wouldn't post the exact numbers but the discount was way below invoice. Threw in a roof rack and a pair of bike carriers as well. Me and the misses are happy campers. Plus, today is the 8 year anniversary of me buying my R32. What a nice anniversary present. She now has a worthy stable mate.

      Congrats on your new car! I thought I did good earlier this month on my purchase of a sunroof R at just above invoice (can't really complain, though as nearly every VW we have purchased from our dealer has been way below invoice... and I was happy with my deal).

      Great choice of color, btw. Both my new R and my 08 R32 are Tornado Red. Best color available (in the US) for this car, imho.

      Thanks guys. I had my heart set on a sunroof car but when you get a deal like this, you can't say no. I love the red. Hope it doesn't peel like the MKIV R32s did.

      Congrats. Glad to see you got a great deal. There was a dealer in GA that wanted to charge 38k for a loaded 4dr.

      Wookies? Shoot, I might come to some of your NC R GTGs if you don"t mind an invasion from north of the border.

      The only option I really wanted from the loaded package was the sunroof. I still find kessy to be a bit of a gimmick, and at my age I really don't hear the difference in the Dyna audio vs non dyna audio, but at the price, it really was a no brainer when it came time to order.

      Kessy is a gimmick I use every day! It's hard to say that about navigation, heated seats, sunroof, heck even cruise control.

      Everyone says that about KESSY until they have it

      If you had to go from KESSY to non-KESSY you would be it drives me nuts getting in my wife's Tiguan now...I faceplant into the door regularly.

      The rack is the OEM crossbars and bike holders. I have the same set on my R32.

      Oh it happened. Because the car is sitting in my driveway and the rack is in the house.

      Congrats. I wouldn't even consider getting the Tornado Red to avoid cops. Then I got two tickets in one night in my CSG.
