Picked it up late so didn’t really have time for a ton of pictures. And if you want the full set, head over to the other thread.

2016 GTI S and basically no options from what I can tell, and that’s what I like about it. Manual transmission, nice plaid heated seats, and Apple CarPlay.

What is the GTI starter kit? Do I get shocker stickers? Some fruity vape thing? More V necks?

Mook tells me to do things all the time and I don't do them.

I mean those seats alone are a reason to buy it. Then I see that man pedal....

I've always coveted the plaid seats

Also, I can totally understand the complaints about the clutch. It's doesn't have the best feedback, but my C30 was worse...but that thing had absolutely zero feel. The actual shifter is very nice and smooth. I haven't really gotten into it, too much, but had a couple quick sprints, and the shifter and clutch responded well.

Is there an "assist spring" like in the Focus ST? Taking that out makes it feel much better, but I left mine in because I was scurrd of it doing anything to the clutch :io:

[MENTION=102]DanJoy[/MENTION] has dabbled with shifter and "clutch feel" stuff....I'm sure he can chime in.

Sweet jesus those are some lumbersexual seats. Do you have a beard? Skinny jeans? Size 14 brown leather shoes?

Skip the vape and go straight to $11/pint craft beer and a pipe

JK, i bet that thing is a blast to drive. Good choice
