Okay, it seems that Indigo Blue is the correct color. Are there any others around that I could compare it to? I asked Madigan to go take some pics (thanks!), but that won't be until Sunday...

Thanks everybody for the kind words. I'll be around much more now as I decide the mod path for this thing. Should be fun!!

Schmove,

I was the Eurosport dyno day on Sunday, driving my "work" transporter. Were you there?

Seattle,

I was just in your 'hood this week. Almost bought the W8 Tip Avant at Carter. Saw the ad for this as I was walking out to get it! Phew, glad I did! Thanks for the Indigo pics, they are perfect. I didn't know what it really looked like, so this helps a lot. Great color! :)

Man, you came all the way up here for a :b5: ? I'm impressed :bow:
Carter VW huh? That's where I go for all my warranty work.. I work about 5 minutes down the road at an aluminum boat construction company. Hope that W8 works out to be as sweet a car as she looks. Congrats! :thumbup:

Just got some additional pics! Thanks to Joe at http://AtLastImports.com. The car is scheduled to ship on Friday and arrive in Carson, CA on the 29th. Not sure I can wait that long, so I might fly up one day this weekend and get it...

This first one is sitting next to the V10 Touareg... drool...

Sorry, been a bit busy.

MustMoto, after driving all night to get home I was asleep by the time you guys were meeting. I'll catch the next one!

SeattleReign, no long trips for a while. I went back to Vegas the next weekend, so I'm laying low a while!!

Bump for some little mods...
