Roxanne-My build thread

This is the start of my build thread for Roxanne('13 2SS/RS 1LE)

A little background:

Placed order with dealer on 8 November 2012. I traded my '10 VW Jetta TDI(4 cyl).
Original TPW was 17 December 2012, but was delayed due to the holidays.
New TPW was 7 January 2013, with an actual build date of 8 January 2013.
She arrived at the dealer 22 January 2013, and has been giving me a permgrin ever since.

First thoughts: BIG difference between my 140hp Jetta and 426hp Camaro. Turning is outstanding, acceleration is unreal. Literally the closest thing to a go-kart for a car I've ever seen. Best parts of my day is driving(even to work!).

Clean-Dirty Lady

27-Jan
Was able to give my car her first bath, much needed with all the dust around here. A few pictures after. Installing my first mods this upcoming weekend when I can get into the Auto-hobby shop.

Black Gill Install

Washed her today, installed the black gills I purchased from Roger at EmblemPros. Really digging the black theme that brings out the orange.
