Ahh, since everyone else has done it...here's our new arrival, all 2 hours old. Our saleslady was nice enough to swap the Scotia's for the Sculptor's for no charge. <br>I pulled into a gas station for the first fill up and some kids were asking questions about the car, albeit in French, which I had no idea what they were saying. But a thumbs up was good enough. <p><BR><BR>

Re: Our new arrival (benjr)

Here we go... I was just in London over the Easter holidays, spent some time in Berkshire with wife's family, and the usual tourist stuff..Was great being in an English speaking place again, even though I don't speak nor do I always understand the Queen's English... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img68.imageshack.us/img68/4425/127small8km.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img81.imageshack.us/img81/6338/128small2fd.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>

do a lot of people really not like the Scotias? When I picked mine up, I thought they looked a lot better in person than in the pics I saw.

Re: Our new arrival (tomi22)

Premium pkg, audio, DTP, and it's a US spec'd T5..<br>I was a little weary about the wife's choice in colors, the beige(which is more gray than anything), and the silver metallic, but it all looks good together. <br>We had sold both our cars prior to coming here, so its great to finally not have to depend on public transit all the time. <p>

Re: Our new arrival (benjr)

congrats on your new wheels ! but 2 hrs old and the only mod so far was swapping the wheels? I used to hate the scotias until I saw them up close now it's my favorite stock 17 " s40/v50 wheel. plus they're rare, as like you most people perfer the other ones. enjoy your ride. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I wish the inlaws had a place like that, I might enjoy going there more... probably not. The pics were taken in front of the Royal Palace which isn't to far from the US embassy.<p>The wheels are not so much a mod as much as an option, the military sales rep managed to change them at the factory FOC for us. The scotia's are ok, personal choice I guess. The car is fairly rare around here as it is, yet to see any sculptor wheels let alone many T5's.
