Picked up...

My new '13 TT today.

I had every intention of keeping it stock....until I got it home and was browsing some parts and accessories sites. Yup, I'm in trouble.

Re: Picked up...

We didn't end up doing much to my 08'... but there are a few things I would like to add to this one. My 08' had the second set of lights on the front bumper (dunno if there's a 'technical' name for them) and they were awesome at night so that'll be something to add to this one.

Re: Picked up...

And I told my husband I wanted to put a new bumper on the front w/ a winch and he has decided he wants to make the bumper for me. Luckily he's pretty handy.

Please come talk to my wife, because I have never been able to convince her I could have a more expensive hobby.
