We picked up a fixed Golf TDI SportWagen yesterday. Our first blue car ever. I'll be transferring the BBS VZ wheels from the Passat that we'll be selling.

How are you liking you GSW? I have about 3k mi on mine now. Getting 43mpg. I don't know about your car, but my dash states I'm getting 51mpg but in all reality its 43mpg. (I reset my odometer at every fill and then divide out he gallons.)

I also learned not to keep the key fob in your pocket while hand washing the car, or every time you brush up against the drivers door handle it will be honking and locking/unlocking the car! (Just annoying as hell!)

Loving it! We got 46 MPG on a recent trip with 75% highway miles, but some of that was stuck in traffic on RT 95 in Connecticut. The MFD on that tank said 50.

Ha! Yes, the same thing happened to me, so I just tossed it in the cup holder.

Yeah, love to hate that part of 95 through Connecticut, but we have a lot of friends and family along the coast, so I have to bite the bullet...

The blue looks awesome! I purchased mine in July 2015 and the only "local" choices (i.e., within 300 miles) were red and white. I got red.

Do you get a lot of good use out of the extra space under the hatch? I had mine packed to the gills for a trip to Cider Days craft fair in Topeka, KS (probably 500 lb of gear), couldn't even see out the back. I could definitely "feel" it was loaded, too, when pulling out in traffic. I really had to put my foot in it between shifts.
