hello!

checking in from the pacific northwest corner of the u.s.

mine is a mkV, reflex silver, bpy, stage 2+... not a daily driver but i go out and toss it around whenever i get the chance... not much stock on it anymore besides the body panels and interior.... i don't wrench on cars myself anymore... but there are several highly regarded vw tuners in this part of the country... and my shop specifically does amazing work.

thanks for having me!

they never sent the GTD over here. we never get the good cars. when i go to europe i can't believe all of the different models and engine choices we never see here in the states. it's infuriating.

Weirdly you are getting the Mk8 R with a manual box though.

Which many here would love!

i got to stay at a hotel way out of my league, gratis... and i was using a cane after surgery... so i got to park next to the big dog in the hotel driveway... ordinarily they don't let mere volkswagen's anywhere near the front door!

I hope you’re better now after your surgery.
Both hotel and parking lot companion look mighty impressive!
