I finally took delivery. And just like mamma use to say, good things are worth waiting for. I LOVE how everything came out.

It has the Votex (sport styling kit) with front lip spoiler, side shirts, rear roof spoiler and stainless steel exhaust extensions.

Excellent photos! Can I use it as an example of a shark blue? They really highlight the car. I can see the flaps on the side skirts for the jack stands.

He looks great Sportsrider! Its almost better you had to wait until Wedenesday, because there was rain on Tuesday. Your pictures would not have looked as good. Nice shots on Alki! I really like the body kit, and the spoiler! Now we have to get your Shark, Peral and Vin together for a Seattle family photo. ;) Other than mine, I have not seen any other Golf Mk6 TDIs driving on the road yet, only on a dealership lot.

Yes, we should all (Vin, Pearl and Casper) all get together for a group photo shoot. I did indeed luck out with the weather on delivery day. Do you get down south often?

I've seen on united gray 2dr here in West Seattle and a GTI also here.

Shark blue, me too

Nice to see the sun over Elliott Bay! My shark blue 2-dr is supposed to be on the ship heading for San Francisco. I like your stainless tips!

:nana2:

congrats. I assume you're getting all giddy by now. You're gonna love your new car.

San Fran? I thought the only ship on the west coast came into San Diego?

So this kit is fitted at the factory or the port? Looks good!

Gratz on the kit and nice ride! Larson in Tacoma and Hanson in Olympia both performed an effective jedi mind trick on me when buying my 10 Golf TDI that the "Sport Style Kit" is just not available. Now I'm ticked... time to call the dealership on this. I have a 72 hour return gaurantee I may put in effect. Its been less than 24 so far.

Dealer install. As far as I am aware there are no factory installs for the Golf, but there might be Port installed in the future.

Nice ride, sportriderseattle. Did you get the dealer to do the tint, too? If so, can I ask how dark the tint and how much they wanted?

I'm still waiting on mine and was thinking I want them to do the windows as well.

yes mine was handled thru the dealer and it's the Washington state legal 35%. I've had 20% on other cars and it's just a little to dark for me. 35% is very nice.

and an ultra-wide angle interior shot. Does it remind you a bit of the brochure picture? ;)

I am actually in the Kent-Des Moines area. I just saw another Mk6 Golf on the road for the first time this weekend. I was on I-5 driving down to Portland for the weekend. Still waiting to see another TDI.
