My daughter's BF killed his car so I sold him my 17 Jetta SE and got myself a brand new GLI. I have put 80 miles on it so far and it's a hoot. I would have settled for a Jetta R Line but the seats in the 19s look terrible to me...the perforated leather in the GLI looks and feels amazing. The blower that cools my behind is amazing too.

Nice, you'll love it...It's a GTI with a trunk.

I'm happy to see that you can get them without the boy-racer red-striped wheels.

Awesome choice! Good call on the GLI vs the R-line as well, whole different animal. The new GLI is really a sweet package. And cooled seats are amazing right? Its one of those thing you never think you need until you have them. Half the time I forget I have it until I've reached wherever I'm going.

It looks like it's in position for a launch to the Moon. These sound like pretty nice cars, looking forward to more pictures.

Congrats!

DSG or manual?

How do you like the digital cockpit?

Does VW offer any good discounts on these?

Nice , how convenient for you that you sold your car I bet it was real painful to have to get a new one ! The things we have to sacrifice for family members .

Nice. It's definitely driver centric.

Nice.

Blower in the seat? For like cooling one's backside? That could be sweet--my wife hated the leather seats in my VW but I sure loved cranking up the heat whenever my back was acting up, particularly after a long hike or bike ride. I think she would have been fine had the seat had a cooler or the like.
