    Eagerly awaiting a driver's eye level POV shot to get an idea of the forward visibility. Hood POV shots are all well and good but they give no sense of what it's going to feel like being in the driver's seat.

    I think there are some videos on YouTube of journalists driving it with some POV shots but I'm not 100% sure.

    I think I am going to request off work and head to the Detroit auto show. Plus, it gives me a good excuse to leave Alaska in the dead of winter. Who all is going?!?!

    I'm not sure it would qualify as mk5 meet if there is only 1 mk5 there and none of the attendees own it lol

    Where is this road? Was the whole car unwrapped? Was it just the bonnet? Why are there no spy pics of this marketing shoot? Someone is slacking.

    I dunno... Magna Steyr is in Austria... and that road looks sorta Alps-ish. Maybe they had a guy throw a pre-production hood in the back of a van, drive out to the country and snap a few pics with his phone. Because from the standpoint of image quality, framing, composition... that looks about like what they've done.

    I’m thinking about going to Detroit’s NAIAS too. As far as some of you know I live in Germany and preordered one. I won’t buy the car without having some “personal contact” with it. Second and last chance before order window closes is Geneva in March. Flight to Geneva seems to be at nearby the same cost as a flight to Detroit or Chicago. :D

    What I’m wondering about is the Dates: World Premiere should be January 14th and officially the NAIAS opens that day. But “normal” visitors are only welcome from January 19th. Is there anyone who knows how to be part of the show on 01/14?

    You'll have to apply for a press/media pass. You can do so on their website but of course you also have to submit various examples of media work and an assignment letter and stuff haha.
