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.

Thanks for the info. Do you mind passing along the part numbers so that I can source parts?

Thanks!
Ya know...I can't seem to locate the parts numbers. Try contacting the part guy I got them with.

NEW TIRES & WHEELS: Budapest 18x8 with Pirellis

Nice wheels Dan. Do you notice a difference in the ride with 18s vs. 17s? Your grill upgrade looks great too!....Glad we are finally having some good weather..Dan (Deej)

Did you have top buy an entire new grille (with chrome) and lower section? Or can you just order the chrome inserts from the dealer and install them? I was thinking of doing this as well because a lot of early 2010's left the factory with the chrome sets.


Its funny you should say this. When I took delivery of mine (Nov '09), I had (have) the normal grill, but my driver's side inside door panel was a carbon fiber insert vs. the metallic looking piece the rest of the doors and the dash had. I had it replaced because it didn't match the rest of the car. It looked really cool, and I wish the whole car had it. Later found out that it was one from a GTD. The GTI and GTD each have distinct inserts, with the GTD getting gray carbon fiber. The dealership wouldn't let me keep it, and they had to replace the entire door panel. Those insert pieces don't come off.

ya know, it may sound a bit strange, but I honestly believe it has a smoother ride with my new 18's over the stock 17's. These are a lower profile tire, 40 series, but they were specifically selected to go on a Passat...which is more of a cush riding VW than our Golfs. I was really expecting the ride quality to go in the other direction, but I am pleasantly surprised with smiles and giggles!
