Converting to the da.:Rkside

My plan was to keep my 2006 GTI until 2016 when the MkVII R (hopefully) debuts. But then I stumbled across a VWoA built big turbo MkV R32, and I couldn't resist! The fact that the OEM built it, maintained it, I put it on the lift at my dealership and that its number 2 of 5,000 sealed the deal.

I've sold my GTI and am registering the R32T tomorrow morning. I am going to daily it, so if you see it around NOVA flip me the Vs. Look for the plate "2 OF 5K".

AWD dyno is happening ASAP, will post results later

Did Mercedes make the lightweight pistons and does it throw down 30 lbs of boost?!
