Want a rear view camera for your Golf or GTI?

I get a lot of mail from people looking to add a rear view camera to their Golfs and GTIs so here is all you need:

– Make sure your radio is compatible by following the Radio compatibility guide fond here 

– Follow the instruction to the DIY found here

 

You can source the parts from places like Futrell and other after market parts retailers, happy modding!

Sunroof vents. Why I love them

June orders start today

Those looking to place an order for a 2012 car today is the day! . Keep in mind  that dealers can no longer ask for “custom” orders.   Cars ordered today will be built in August and delivered in Sept.

A few notable items:

– Touareg executive can not be ordered at this time

– 2012 Jetta orders wont start until next month

–  First order for 2012 Routan

– Tiguan, Passat and Beetle join the new MBO  ordering system based on overall dealer preferences not individual cars request.

All orders MUST be in by close of business on Friday, June 24, 2011.

Want to drive the GTI 35? There is an app for that. No we don’t get the real thing.

Rumor was that VW considered bringing the special edition GTI 35 to the states. Today VW of America said that there is no way in hell that car is coming here! Ok maybe they weren’t so harsh about it but yeah, it is not coming here.  VW’s excuse is that the GTI sells well as it is, the Golf R will be out soon and the curbs in the US will destroy the front bumper ( 2004 GLI 1.8T ring any bells?).

As a consolation price they have released an app for iOS devices featuring the GTI 35 and all 6 GTI generations racing around a track. How unfair would it be to put a MKI up agaist an MKVI? if you want the App you can get it from this itunes link.
