Btw, graphite blue pearl apparentely is different from the metallic. In Europe we only have the pearl effect.

You have no idea how narrow is the sidewalk . The right mirror is just at 2inches from the fence. Thank god for the rear view camera, does help a bit in these situations.

The setup in your picture is stock right? I like it .. I'm not really into the whole lowering thing but if my car sat a tad bit lower + a bigger tire, 17 or 18" max, I'd be good to go. I should look for some sport springs that people don't want anymore.

Also jealous for your back up camera :P

I guess it is normal to park on sidewalks in Romania... that truck back there is chillin' on the sidewalk too.

It's not normal, but it's accepted. There are no parking spaces there and the sidewalk has 0 pedestrian traffic.
@echlon : It's stock, although sport suspension makes the car 15mm lower
A pic with the winter setup

Since I waited so long to post in here I'm gonna whore!

You should have named the thread Official Graphite Blue Golf/R/GTI/GTD Thread. I think there's some Arab gti's that come in graphite blue.
