    Photos up - Opulent Blue CTSV Wagon w/ painted wheels and red calipers.

    Cellphone pics only - didn't want to inconvenience the Mrs. and the child while I try to take designer shots. Needless to say, the dealer did a nice job of cleaning the car (they hand-washed it after I asked them to not auto-wash) and shining up the tires. I've seen OB CTS's before, but IMHO I really made the right call going with the painted wheels and red calipers; even though the latest fad is blacked out everything. Defintely says "V" to me, and of course the titanium interior was made for this color.

    I will try to take some better shots later on in the week for posterity.

    I was going to order a wagon, just because. because it's different. But I think the sedan looks nicer. It was hard enough finding a used 6MT sedan. Can't imagine how hard it is to find a used wagon.

    I spent a lot of time looking for used manual wagons... which is why I ordered this one new.

    Beautiful car man!

    Though, I don't think your dog approves.

    Beautiful car man. The painted wheels go nicely with the red and the blue. And the titanium was a good call. Enjoy it!

    Looks good, myself I kinda like the black satin wheels better on that combo along with a black out grill option, but everybody is different. That must have been a good wax they put on the car, it really shines.

    That color on that car is stupendous, especially in that light. Congratulations.

    Aw come on the black diamond looks better , I keep trying to tell myself this!~ I had a Opulent blue on order, but it was taking way too long and let her go, oh well at least I've gotta Opulent blue VW now, haha.
    Tomorrow she will have a red pinstripe and red calipers soon too, plus better sound system than the V and more comfortable Oh did I mention 50 MPG outta the TDI. I still love my Vagen though.

    That is a great car. I think the wagon is the best of the bunch. Enjoy it in good health.

    Yeah yeah yeah - you win, because I totally bought the Vagon for the factory sound system!

    Doesn't the VW come with something like 170HP? So are your mods akin to... ahem... putting lipstick on a proverbial pig?

    <zing!>

    I keed, I keed!

    I saw two TDI wagons yesterday, and I was surprised at how dimensionally big they looked overall. Still decent looking for a wagon, but bigger than I would have expected.

    Yep, it's a lot bigger than I thought, holds more than my V wagon. It's a good combo owning both cars. Sorry did not mean to detract from the thread.

    It was a welcome change - what good is the internet if you can't give a perfectly anonymous stranger a hard time? I posted over on the Corvette forum to tease all the hardcore Z06 guys about my solid exhaust valve "conversion" (ie the V); and of course you get the expected "but it's not a Z06!" responses where people have to defend their own choices and preferences.

    I might as well post over on the Mustang forum and expect them to tell me how much better my car is than the GT500?

    It's all in good fun - don't take the internet too seriously, or Al Gore will win.
