Here's my new baby! :)

2006 TDI
Salsa Red
Six speed auto transmission DSG w/Tiptronic
Package 2, 17" wheels
Cream Leather Interior
Sirius satellite radio
Factory spoiler
Window Tint
Monster Mats (best investment ever!)
Perfect Fit bra (added in November)
Enfig stubby antenna (also November)

Sorry, these pictures aren't the best. I'll try to get some better ones posted soon.

Here Putter is at the dealership on Friday, September 29, 2006. He was one of 3 TDI's in what our dealer said would almost certainly be the last shipment of diesels until the new CRDs arrive for 2008 (or whenever they get here). There was my Salsa Red, a Reflex Silver with nice wheels and pinstripe, and a Harvest Moon that was in the detail bay so I couldn't see it.

Here's Putter after his first bath. He's not really orangey, as this pic appears... that was actually the sunset's reflection. I was runnin' out of daylight :)

Here's Putter going old school with a friend's Super.
This good man is our local AC Beetle "Bug Guy" who kept our daughter's '73 purring. If we had paid him for all the hours he put into that car, he probably could have bought a new one himself ;) If you look closely you can see the old guys inspecting Putter.

I wanted to get some picutres of Putter this morning while he was still clean. We live on a dirt road, so "clean" doesn't last long. However, the days are getting shorter and the sun wasn't up when I went out to get the pictures and I didn't need to be late for work... so they're a little dark.

Thanks Debbie :) I really, really like the spoiler. It's amazing how such a small detail can make such a big impact on the whole profile of the car. I'm glad I went ahead and got it.

The only thing I don't particularly care for on my new TDI is the 'angle' of the antenna. I guess the satellite antenna base is what makes it sit that way. I think it distracts from the line of the car.

I wonder if a stubby antenna would look better? I don't want to have crappy reception, though :(

A good antenna ball will pull the antenna down when driving. ;)

Still, your long awaited NB is awesome. :D
