    Let me (re-)introduce myself

    Hey all, back and active after a hiatus.
    Just picked up a 2013 passat v6 wagon. 900km yesterday to get it home to Brisbane, super comfy, may have launched every on ramp. Haven't tested the handling too much yet, but I'm coming from a ranger so even a commodore would be an improvement, and its not like I'm tracking it. Yet

    As far as VAG cars go I've had a mkv gti and an fl mk3 octavia rs wagon.

    Looking forward to getting back around the dub. Have a few things I want to do, maybe not as many as @MIG though.

    Al..

    Your Passat V6 FSI Highline looks great mate! You have the "full fat" 220kw V6 engine!!!
    I love these models, I used to have a 125TDI and a 130TDI Highline also.
    Both mine had Driver Assistance and Visibility Package along with Sports Pack.
    Love Reflex Silver also!!!

    Yep, 220kW through all 4 wheels.
    Mine didn't come with the dap, and there are some features of it that I really want, after some essentials...

    Hmmmm… that username caught my eye.

    Former GT Forester owner by any chance, from back in the GTrydaz days?

    Also love the Reflex silver, I miss my Bora which was the same colour.
    The engine bay is also looking super clean, how many KMs are on it?

    Trust me when I say you will love every minute of that car

    I actually looked into importing an sg9 sti, but even with the favourable exchange rate it was pushing up towards 30k for a decent example

    @MIG cheers, its got 97k on the clock, that's after the drive home. I'm missing carplay the most, so that will be high on the to do list. Discover2 install maybe...

    Cool - it's a small world!

    Yep, SG9 STIs aren't cheap, that's for sure... and they are getting on in age.
