Hi everyone, I'm new around here, so I'm still learning some stuff
Anyway to get on with things:

7/30/14:
Found the car on Autotrader and took the hour drive to go look at it. 3 hours went by and I was now the proud owner of a 2011 Deep Black Pearl GTI. The car was a base model and in DSG, because I never had a car to learn how to drive manual with.




Picture was taken at a gas station due to the fact that 15 minutes after leaving the dealer, the TPMS light came on...

MTBFL1's 2011 Black GTI

8/6/14:

Put about 200 miles on the clock so far and I have 0 complaints. First fill up today too - does anyone recommend premium over regular on a completely stock car?

Also applied some red 3M trim to break up the black on the bumper a little, got the idea from mygtimk6 on instagram, not sure if he's on here or not
*EDIT: removed as of May 2015*

Welcome! I like the red trim! And 91 octane or above is strongly recommended by volkswagen. You should only use 91 or above.
