As you all know I traded in my CTS-V a month ago on what was supposedly a brand new 2009 GTI. After I found out that the "brand new" Gti had hidden body damage on it I brought it to my local VW dealer to get checked out and found that it had already been sold to someone else and repod. Apparently in Illinois this is legal and you can resell the car as new as long as it was never titled.

Long story short the dealership that I bought the car from claimed ignorance and the sales manager said they couldn't (wouldn't) help me. After about a month of back and fourth with them I finally had a sit down with the owners yesterday. The owner is a GREAT guy (car enthusiast and race car driver sponsored by APR and VW) and quickly offered to put me in a brand new 09 GTI. He was also VERY enthusiastic about my CTS-V and said that he would probably just keep it for his private collection (it was already parked in the service garage next to his 3 other race cars). In the end I ended up with this Black Magic Pearl GTI with the Factory Thunderbunny Appearance Pacakge:















If anyone is in the market for a VW, Mazda, Subaru, or Nissan I would definitely recommend the Autobarn.

Wow Ted... I didn't know you were dealing with all that on the red one. Bummer

I am still trying to wrap my arms around "thunderbunny". Is that a good thing. ;) What comes with that?

Congrats on getting it straightened out!!! You sound happy, so all is good!

I already regret the black but it was the only brand new 2009 they had left and it has a lot of "pearl flake" in it so it isn't completely black.. I also had a small meeting with a truck retread on the highway and i need to get some touch up paint for her :(

So no plans for 19x10s with 215 tires on 'em like the VW crowd seems to love? :rolleyes:

I imagine the KWs should be sweet on that car.
Hahaha considering some 19x8.5 xxr518 wheels since they were what came with the original thunderbunny package. 245s should fit..I would like something a bit wider then the 225s for track days.

It would look better with a Tau Kappa Epsilon license plate frame. :bouncy:
TKE got kicked off Purdue's campus a few years ago for dealing cocaine in the house :tisk:
