My New Fast is outta Control!!!

OK- So I just got my Fast today and I don't know what to do!

When I first got him outta the box he seemed angry at first and then smiled at me... must have been a long trip in a box :-[

The first time he was left alone in my car, the lil fooker chewed off the volume knob and now the stereo is stuck at 75% volume... then he peed all over the leather in the back seat.

Is this normal???? like WTF?

So we are on the way home headed southbound on Hwy 242... the Fast gave me a weird look as I glanced at him... So I slowed down and tucked back in to traffic in the #3 lane. Looked at him again and he grinned with a "F*k you! look causing me to down shift to "S" mode- at the same time, I notice the patrol car neatly tucked between the oleanders and the ivy that was growing up the sound wall.

Fortunately, the CHP Traffic Officer had the LIDAR gun pointed at another 'target' and while during the shift into "S"; the engine revved, the turbo whined and the Fast sitting in the passenger seat growled at me!!!

So, I have a few questions and I hope you can help:

-I installed the lightning bolt tail, does the tail affect behavior?

-Do I have a defective Fast- or are they all like this?

-Should I chrome his legs or bling the grill out first?

-If the dealer updates the flash software will it help?

-Can I feed him 86 octane instead of 91?

-If I have his tailed change to custom part, will it void my warranty w/ VW?

Greatly Appreciate All Your Input,



Frustrated near Fresno >:D

:p

My fast killed my radar detector!!!!! It was fine went I went into Wal-Mart, came out, hit the road, and about the time I hit 85, I looked up, and noticed the radar detector was off! No, it was D E A D !!!! I really think my fast killed it! WTF!? Was he mad that I didn't take him in for pizza a few hours before? Was he mad I didn't take him into Wally World? Do they make armor plated radar detectors? Or maybe chew toys for the Fast? I need a beer.

It takes about two months- but looking at your sig line... if you are recv'g mail at an APO it may not ship... you may want to call 1-800-DRIVEVW.

look what theres a** Holes said to me about my fast


Dear Jeff,

Our records reflect that you have recently inquired about the Fast figurine currently provided with the purchase of a new GTI MkV.

It is with displeasure to advise you, however, that your GTI MkV does not meet the eligibility requirements to receive the Fast figurine as the vehicle was not purchased from an authorized Volkswagen dealership. We apologize for any disappointment this may cause.

While this correspondence obviously is not as you would have preferred, we remain thankful for your loyalty to the Volkswagen brand.

What did you expect?!?

You're only going to get one if the car comes from the dealership; shouldn't that be common sense?

when i called they told me that i was going to get it i just had to change my apo to a state side address than he put me on hold for almost 10 and came back and was like okay all paper work has been processed and is good you should recieve it in about 1 month than the same guy writes be back 2 weeks later and gives me that message


i do not agree with that every where i look for the details on the fast they never said you had to get the car at a dealership to get it. all i have read was you buy a gti and you get the fast. damn it i was the fast.

thanks anyways i guess i will go fast less.
