2012 GLI gets different wheels at the last minute.
2012 GLIs were supposed to be in route to dealers in May but a last minute decision to change the wheels caused a slight delay to June.
VW planned to use the “charleston” wheels used on the 2007 GLI Fahrenheit and 2010 Jetta TDI cup. They went as far as using those wheels for the brochure and Marketting materials. At the New York autoshow they showed the actual 18″ wheel that they will use and I gotta say they look much better! Pic below
