dealer neglected to remove shipping wedges out of my GTI. Went 500 yards out the lot, realized what was going on, turned around and went back. The service adviser looked pretty sheepish :D

My 2010 GTI is awesome in DC. Fast and nimble enough to cut through Beltway traffic. Gets decent mileage. Ridiculously easy to parallel park. The 2015's have rearview cameras although let's face...
