NEWBIE MK6 GTI OWNER
« on: 30 May 2009, 18:42 »
Greetings from a newbie
Been out today and ordered me a mk6 gti, 3 door, 18" monzas, in metallic graphite grey, been told car will be with me in 8 weeks.
Cannot wait, so excited, not driven one yet but from what ive been reading im sure I wont be disapointed, had a mk 5 gti for 9 months in 2006, loved it also but had to move it on due to getting a company car.
Ive opted out of a company car this time around so I thought I would treat myself.
Not sure if ive made the right colour decision though, I know its all down to personal preference but I cant help thinking I sould get it in black.  Ive got till Monday morning to make a final decision.
Anyway whichever colour I choose Im sure I will be very happy, great forum by the way enjoying all the posts.
It would be great to get any feedback from all you new owners once you have all taken delivery.
Thanks
Simon. :grin:

stick with the grey, black gets to common and shows up swirl marks/scrathces to easily, also longer to clean!.
you will get a nice deep shine from the grey!
Congrats on the purchase too!

My car apparently has been brought forward by one week from week 31 to 30.
With this in mind does anyone have an idea when they think it will be ready to be picked up?
How long does it take to ship and prep a car?
Thanks in advance.
