    Is black on black ok?

    I'm thinking about the spec of my MkVI, about to place order. Currently in a MkV Silver and thinking of going black this time. Super keen to stay with the leather as the heated seats have been addictive but concerned the black on black may be too much. Opinions, esp. those with a Black/Black...

    What's under your hood? Not what's in the brochure...

    Has anyone gone through the process of researching the best option for integrating a bluetooth handsfree into the GTI. Is the control on the steering wheel with the phone icon, for future integration? I had a motorola bluetooth in my last car which worked well...any suggestions?

    Anyone sailing on the Don Juan?

    It's due to hit our fair shores Tuesday in Fremantle, anyone else have GTIs on this ship? Has to be a form of torture up there with anything used in the military for it to finally get to Australia and you still have to wait another 4 weeks or so before delivery. :eyebulge:
