Back in late 2011 my company asked if I could help them out by moving to Germany for a few years to help grow the business. After I said yes I moved in early 2012 out to Aachen Germany to work.
It took a few months to process all of the paper work and get settled in but one of the requirements of my job is lots of travel, and that necessitates me having a car...
As a kid who's first car was an old VW fox wagon from my older brother and favorite daily driver ever was a 98 TDI jetta I have never owned a "new" car in my life. For me the chance to get a German car in Germany was kind of a dream come true. As the process followed thru I was able to pick and choose between a ton of options and make my very own VW built in Wolfsburg. Ill spare the details for now but I was able to build in my range a 4 door TDI golf with quite a few goodies in it. Basicaly a GTD without the plaid seats.
Last week the deal got even more unbelievable for me when I got this letter in the mail:
So i have been basically hopping up and down for a week because i get to go to VW AutoStadt and get my car out of the pez dispenser thing like a real German!
Today I went out and got my package of plates and paperwork to bring it home, So i actually HAVE euro plates. And they are SUPPOSED to go on my car!
Tomorrow morning early I will get on a train to go to Autostadt and pick up my first new VW. So... I'm excited...
