07 Model is what I believe the promo was about.. I bought an 07.. You remember the commercials with Slash and other rockers playing the First Act Special Edition Guital?

I remember Slash doing a commercial for a car but didnt remember it for our Fast. Was it the one he opened the trunk and plugged in somewhere in the trunk or glove compartment? I asked about the Fast coming with the car but I didnt know about the guitar. Caught me by total surprise.

They plugged it into the iPod adapter in the glove compartement - you can play the guitar through your stereo system.

I emailed VW about the promotion, since it was supposed to be for 2006 & 2007 GTI's - I didn't receive one (yet)

Ah ok Vegas FH. Then I was close and thinking of same commercial. I'll have to look next time in the car. I've got the iPod adapter in that mid arm rest.

On the box, the guitar's numbered and mine is 1094 of 1234. Guess these are limited but mine didnt match the car. BM car with a blue guitar. Oh well, Im not complaining cuz its still in the box. Would have been nice if they color matched it for what you purchased.

I picked up mine last weekend, so I don't know if I will get one or not. The dealer never REALLY answered the question when I asked. I don't think they know or care. I will wait a month or two, then call VW Canada.

I was told that the Fast does not currently meet/exceed the import safety standards in Canada. >:D ;D

Nice one. :D

As far as I know, the DRL's are the same, as is the ride height and number of air bags. The little prick still comes with that little smirk.

Guitar? Fast?? At least you guys get stuff... mine is an '06 and I still haven't gotten my fast... I called that number, but the car is in the name of the Wells Fargo that financed it, and it's in Cali, and I dont know the address. They would have to call and order it for me, and for some reason I think they have better things to do.

Oh well, at least I have the car.

I live in Canada and bought my car in October 06. I tried for like 5 months to get it but VW kept giving me the run around about getting my fast. Finally they said that they couldn't ship it to Canada due to border issues (I think they just didn't want to pay customs or something). So I gave them the address of a friend in Michigan and he got it 3 weeks later. Maybe try that if you know someone.
