Talking My 2010 TDI Golf 2dr 6speed manual has Arrived 12/21/09

I don't think I'll get much sleep tonight! I got a call early this evening saying my TDI has arrived and I can pick it up tomorrow! (I couldn't wait to see it so I drove over there tonight to sneek a peek before it went to PDI) I am so giddy I feel like a kid at Christmas! ..and isn't it ironic that this is just in time for Christmas! Best Christmas present I ever got myself.

I ordered it Oct 8, 2009.... had a delivery date assigned of Jan 18, 2010 and then it got moved up to Jan 4th 2010 and THEN it showed up TODAY! WAHOO!!!

Oh.. I was keeping it sorta quiet but I got an offer I couldn't refuse on my 04 R32 VW back in September (I was the original owner)... ...and then I fell in love with the new TDI from a visit to the VW dealer (on a whim mind you).. then shopped around and City Volkswagen in Chicago gave me the best deal (Easily recommended dealership BTW) ->The best part is I'm not out any money because thanks to the tax incentives for the TDI I'm doing an even trade (yeah I know the R32 is more rare and all that stuff but I had it for 5+ years and did enjoy it.. now time to enjoy better mpg, a new warranty, etc.!) I was just heartbroken my R32 was sold and now I have something new to get excited about!

Some sneek peek pics before PDI and delivery from earlier this evening to share ( I just couldn't wait until tomorrow to see it... lol):

Very nice I've had a bunch of time in an 09 TDI Jetta and it's a super impressive powerplant. I'm curious how it feels in the lighter Golf.

Nice, I was looking at the audi A3 diesel. I want to know how your mileage is in a few months. I think we are going to see a nice combination of direct injection and diesel cars and trucks in the next few years.

Yes indeed I am a woman.


Today I just hit 10,000 miles on my drive into work. (Since Nov 15th last year I ended up with a 28 mile commute 1-way so now the miles are going to add up quicker than when I was unemployed!!!)
