      Is this the GTI. If not when can we see some pics of it!!!
      New Dash looks very nice. Also does the dash sit down lower, kinda like the new maxaima?

      No GTI photos at this point. The PR department thought there might be a photo or two, but it turns out no at this point.

      Great pics! Like the interior.
      And this looks awesome!

      Anyone else who likes the 5-door more than the 3-door? I do

      Some of the p-shops were growing on me, but IMO that pic above has confirmed that the MKV looks like poop. How disappointing.
      The GTI isn't likely to look that much different. Visually, there's not much difference between the MIV Golf and GTI.

      It's oke when you remove posts with new pictures, but publish then ALL the pictures in the gallery. Because we want to see them all, and more. Like:


      Maybe we aren't patient enough.
      Oops I checked the Gallery again. And what do I see. There they are. I go to see a doctor. I'm a stressed today . Is this human Jamie ??

      My post to FASt's thread was deleted along with it, apparently by VWVortex ( ), so I'll repeate myself here in short:
      * shift boot on a Tiptronic stick: silly
      * brushed aluminum shiftgate like nothing else in the saloon: why?
      * high-scooping dashboard cluster visor: icky
      * pre-2002.5 tiny glove box: why?
      * ill-placed steering wheel controls: icky
      * power windows regulator on driver's door locks keypad: huh?
      * the lateral regs on air vents regulators now apparently don't illuminate
      also:
      * what are them 5 rectangular buttons/stickers on A-pillar?
      * what is this ugly crease on the front dashboard shelf?
      The only positives so far are, of course, NAV system, LATCH cutouts in rear seat cushions, and new climate controls.
      Still, I will wait for leather trim pictures to be released before I conclude whether this interior looks really ugly or just ugly. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
      EDIT: it's a DSG shifter, not a Tiptronic.

      Yeah, that Beetle person's thread got removed too. The site didn't stay in my history, but it had all the pics on it. I think I may have been the first to see them on here. Oh well...

      Actually, I think that is a vent on the A-Pillar... I dunno why they would put any buttons there.

      It's actually a vent for the side window (to defrost it etc.) ...

      Yup, you must be right.

    16. 08-25-2003 11:27 AM #16
      Anyone know what color this is? Doesn't look like normal silver, is it a new grey type?

      A darker version of Touareg Bluesilver? That's my guess, but I'm sure it'd be called something else than "darker Bluesilver."
      Edit: The more I look at it, the more it looks like the Focus blue with a deeper purple coloring to it.

      Hey guys, what are these smallish buttons in the lower corners of the instrument cluster?
