In the middle of a snowstorm in Denver I picked up my brand new Pure White/Titan Black Golf Alltrack SEL + DAP/LP. Well, it had 24 miles after a few test drives. I really wanted a manual but I wanted Lighting Package, better seats and all the other cool stuff that comes with the SEL even more. Plus my Jeep is manual so I get my fill. If you're interested I have done a few other "documentation" threads, as I call them. Click on the links in my signature to see what's in store for this Alltrack. They aren't always builds so I don't always call them build threads. Plus I like to rant and rave and vent and just post pictures of my adventures and shenanigans, of which there are many!
The car came from Emich VW in Denver. With no haggling I got an out the door price of a hair over $30,000, true OTD including tax title license. Sticker on the car is $36,025. Sale price of the vehicle itself was just over $28,000 so I got nearly $8000 off MSRP. The crazy deals on the internet right now are no joke!
Read the entire owners manual while waiting for friends and family to appear on Christmas Eve. I cant tell you how happy I am that the owners manual is actually shaped like a regular book!!!
I spent the last couple days setting up the nav and carplay and all the other doodads this thing has. Its a far cry from my '96 Cherokee that has manual everything and zero options or creature comforts hah.
So far my vagcom tweaks list is:
- Gauge sweep
- Disable door open tone
- Disable seat belt warning
- Seat heater level retention
- HVAC Recirculate setting retention
I tried to enable the "keyfob with car running" function but it didn't want to take the code. I plan to mess around with the ESC settings, XDS settings and Dynamic Steering settings in the near future. Maybe when I have a giant empty snow-covered parking lot...
I love that I can have weather, traffic and ski resort info at the touch of a button.
The night I picked it up. I have literally never owned the car when it was clean. Definitely a first time for that.
Thats all for now. Lots of stuff is on order already...
