Hello from Bahrain!

Recommended Posts

I've been lurking here for about 3 weeks now and WOW, i am overwhelmed with the amount of useful information available here for new owners like myself; especially the What to check for thread and the tips and tricks thread. So for that, i decided to join and thank you!

 

My name is Khaled and i am from Bahrain. Had my car for a little over 2 week now and i love it! This is my first VW ever, i remember my dad had a navy MK2 cabriolet at some point; but i was probably 5 at the time lol. Of course it is long gone..

 

So what is it? It is a 2018 Lapiz Blue fully loaded, GCC spec. so there might be a few differences from the Euro or US spec ones given the heat we live in 🌅.

 

Only 2 options available at the stealership at the time were:

  1. 2x fully loaded (one on display + one stored) w/ DCC, ACC, 19" spielberg (😭), Digital cockpit w/ nav & 9.2 display, Nappa leather, DSG (not many manuals in this country except by order; unless it is a toyota Hilux lol), Dynaudio... umm can't remember if there is anything else missing - The one i got.
  2. 2x lower option (white silver on display + Indium Grey stored) w/ no DCC, no ACC, 18" Cadiz, digital cockpit but no nav in it, the smaller display with the knobs (not sure what its called), Vienna leather, DSG, w/o Dynaudio.

 

I was torn between the Lapiz Blue and the Indium grey, and i had to go with the Blue! Because... my other car i have is blue too lol. Many criticized me for it, but i just love blue, what can i say! That and i thought it was pointless getting a digital dash with no nav in it.

 

I took a few pics for you guys hopping to have a small peice of Bahrain in there. I'm sorry it was not washed that day 🤦‍♂️. Now if i can only figure out how to upload them 🤔.

 

Well, thank you for having me and it is a pleasure being here :). Also i'm sorry for any bad English as it is my 2nd language.

Allah ybarek fi 7yatek, ma tg9er yal '3ali!  What are the odds of running into you here lol. I came across the Instagram page, very impressive but hesitated because i deleted my facebook account a long time ago 😅. I will get in touch with you soon though, thanks!
