Hmm, maybe the ships go to Houston then. It's quite possible since it is the busiest port in the US.

Normally mine is produced last week, and within 2 weeks I'll get it

Yeah I was playing with the UK website and saw the Carbon Steel Grey color option. I'm curious to see how that looks in real life. You wanna take a picture of yours once you get it?

Hot Damn!

I like that a lot! It seems like the perfect level between Black Magic and United Grey.

I wonder how much dust it'll show. That was a big complaint with Black Magic (well any black car really) is that it gets dirty really quick.

Carbon Steel wont be available in America right? I find that United Grey looks really nice in the show rooms, but when ever I see one on the road it looks rather dull, and a bit green-ish.

I just made a post in another thread. The article I found says Carbon Steel should be coming to the US.

The Carbon Steel is coming to the US. The first cars to arrive at US dealers will be VWoA spec'ed like the MK V was and I believe they're all Carbon Steel. 2 Door, stick, HID, sunroofs, Dynaudio I believe (check with Turbo Paul on vwvortex.com ask a salesperson thread). 4 doors are all going to be DSG loaded up except for Nav. Due date for them to hit is October. Each stealership will get 1-2 of each according to what I've read. Allocation units (the ones the dealers can custom order) will arrive in November. VW's biggest intake ports on the East Coast are Baltimore and Newark, NJ I believe. Don't know 'bout Houston or anything out on the left coast. All MK VI GTI's (and Golfs for that matter - including the 2.5L and TDI for here in the US) will be manufactured in Germany. The 4 doors at Wolfsburg, the 2 doors at Mosel-Zwickau. Jetta's continue in Puebla, Mexico. Not sure about the JSW (a.k.a. Golf variant in the rest of the world). Can't wait for my MK VI GTI to get here in November.

Friend of mine got his 3 door VI GTI already, and his one is build in Wolfsburg?
