After a wait of nearly 5 months our Sport finally arrived late last week!

So here are a couple of pics from when we collected at the dealer, its a standard 1.4 TSI Sport model, only extras were Winter Pack and Body Coloured Dash and Doortops instead of the gloss black, plus OEM stripes from front to back, these were put on at the dealer as a surprise for my wife!

Not sure how our specs are different from your US specs, but being a Sport it has the Sports seats, front and rear sensors, multifunction steering wheel, RCD510 DAB radio, ipod connectivity and bluetooth, 65% tint rear windows B pillar back, ambient lighting, highline computer, chrome trim pedals etc And annoyingly now the MY14 build year now has the 3 sport dials as standard and auto lights and rain sensor as an option, two things that I really wanted!!! However, we are still really pleased with it!!!

I was worried when my wife wanted to order the body coloured dash and door tops as I thought that the white just wouldnt work inside the car, but, it really does, brightened the interior up and it 'just' works, even the dealer said it was the first time they had ordered in a Sport with the coloured dash and they were surprised how well it worked!

We decided on the 1.4 TSI engine as the car is mainly for my wife and she was happy with the performance on it, enough power to overtake when needed but not so much power that it makes her feel uncomfortable driving!

Overall, the first few days have been really enjoyable and we both love the look, ride and drive of the car!!

Welcome. It looks fast just sitting there.

Your wife had great vision, opting for the white interior pieces really was the right choice :)

Thanks for the comments people, will look better tomorrow as hopefully there will be no rain and I will give it a full 'new car detail' also putting the mud flaps on too, so if I get it done and the weather is kind I will get some more photos!

Managed a day on it today as it was a good working temperature and no rain which is unusual for good old England!!!

So, gave it a wash, clay, polish, sealant on the outside and the inside hoovered, all seats, carpets, mats were given a protector (Gtech I1 to be exact) and then the dash, leather trims etc were also given some treatments too!!

Overall, looks even better now!!! :)




My Skoda decided to sneak in on this picture!!
