2011 5 Door GTI
DSG
Black
Leather Luxury Package
Technology Package

I told them not to drill the front bumper and not to put a dealer sticker on.

I can not wait! It is going to be a slow 2-3 weeks!

Congrats man!! I should have told them not to drill in my front bumper too lol since I don't need a lisence plate for the front in Indiana(bought from IL). But I would love to see your pics of when you start modding your car. Hopefully when you do get it the tune for 2011 gti's will already be out. I'm planning on going with an apr stage 1 tune and intake when the tune is released then go stage 2 after I buy the downpipe.

Might want to remind them a few times about not drilling for the front plates... Better off to be a pain in their ass than to get stuck with holes.


2-3 weeks sounds painful... good luck! :P
