      The wait was unbearable but it lined up perfectly with the end of my GTI lease (which, btw, was returned with a perfect inspection, and I hear that's very rare).

      Well, aside from still being new and not broken in yet, I am in love with this car. My 2016 GTI SE had ACC but no performance package, this GLI is kind of the opposite. What I have lost in driver aids I've gained in braking and handling. I thought I didn't need the LSD but man, what a difference!

      And how cool is this color? So different in the sun than the shade. I LOVE IT!

      I am getting windows tinted Friday and hope to get an OEM Euro short shifter, if they are the same as the GTI. Of course a tune, but I don't have plans on suspension at this point. Doesn't feel as tall as the GTI.

      Yeah, great pictures. I have the same car with dsg. Can you check something for me? Check the rims for what looks like uneven clear coat on machined part. Its faint but I think all these wheels might have it. I ask you because in one of the pics I may see it. 4th pic from bottom and bottom spoke of wheel. Looks like swirl marks.

      Very nice! I wanted that colour too but had to settle for pyrite silver. It is nice but not as special as the pure grey. Congrats.
