Big congrats on the car. You are going to love it.

I personally would get the satellite radio option as the price is low relative to the car. You get a 12-month trial subscription to Sirius, which will cover 1/3 of the price. I am not sure if the free trial expires.

I still have to wait ~6 more weeks to get my car back from ED. Ugh..

Congrats! I'm about to pull the trigger on my order too but the not particularly attractive residuals and the MFs are making it a harder decision than I had wanted...

Whoops, I went manual. I have DSG on my GTI and frankly, it's boring the snot out of me. I did test drive an M-DCT and it was nice but I want to go back to a manual. Right now I actually prefer driving my wife's Wrangler because it's a manual... How sad is that?

Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing. I won't be able to use it for 2+ years but I'm hoping I can just not activate it until I get back to the States and start my year then.

Thanks!

Bring clothes for rain. It doesn't get all that warm here (when it gets into the 80s people start talking about heat waves, lol) but it rains all the time. Having said that it's a great time of year for driving.

What did you go with?

CONGRATS QS. Things really seem to move quickly when one lives in Germany or takes delivery there...

I'm thinking mines gonna be delayed longer then the expected 18Feb delivery date since the shipping process is just now starting to roll; right during the holidays

Post pics when you pick her up!

Yeah, not having to wait for a boat and the possible 53 days ship time (again) definitely speeds the process up.

Thanks! I can't wait to finally have her in the garage. The best part is once my wife deploys I can drive her Wrangler on the really crappy days.

You know what's really funny? Every time I tell someone silver leather they picture something the color of aluminum foil.

Update time!

Got my bill of sale from pentagon so I can register the car tomorrow and then pick it up Monday or Tuesday. Is it sad that I'll be in Paris this weekend with my family and not really be thinking about the city????
