      Definitely. I checked Kijiji for any decent 16-17" OEM VW or Audi alloys before I bought ordered my steel wheels. Nothing good was available. I'm happy with the steelies but at the same time, I'm...

      Got my GTI on December 12 and haven't washed it since. There just isn't much point. It snows a couple times a week and the roads are perpetually covered in salt would be dirty again within a day.

      I actually kinda like the look of black steel wheels on the GTI. If it had 16" silver alloys then the high sidewalls would be very obvious.

      I did the cheaper one because we were pressed for time but it was still great. I highly recommend checking it out.

      Is that because it has a stronger residual or lower interest rate or both? In Canada a loaded GLI is a few hundred cheaper than a loaded (non PP) GTI but leases for $70 more a month. Both are...

      I think most performance models are always going to be sort of obscure to the general public though. The GTI has the advantage of being offered for a long, uninterrupted time period. The GLI has been...

      "They don't know how to drive a turbocharged car." That was pretty funny. :laugh:



      Did it consistently pull to the right though?

      Have you driven a MkVII GTI? I wonder how the GLI compares.

      Jealous of your fuel economy. I've barely been able to break 30 MPG but then again it is winter and I've mainly done mixed city/highway...

      I thought there was no ML350 for '15 but it turns out Mercedes is just weird.

      2015 ML in U.S.:

      ML250 Bluetec
      ML350
      ML400
      ML63 AMG

      One thing that Jeep does that VW could emulate for some models like the GTI is the ever changing color palette. Have your mainstays but each year offer one or two unique colors. It keeps interest in...

      I find these commercials incredibly annoying. They're even annoying when I fast forward through them.

      Those cars were game changers. A lot of people like to hate on them now but we have to remember just how crappy economy cars were back then. VW really set a new standard and Mazda was the first to...

      Personally, I really like this idea. However, how many young people (the presumed target audience) will understand the nostalgia of the original Rabbit? VW already tried playing that up with the MkV...

      There's probably a ton of Wranglers out there that never see their hard top off though.

      Yup, even a 320i sport package was hundreds more per month than my GTI. :(

      What kind of specialty models are we talking about though? Golf R is probably considered a specialty model but that's a far cry from a "sticker" model where they can charge a couple grand for a...

      Yup. And the lack of consistency doesn't help either. With the B5 Passat they offered AWD initially only with the 2.8. Okay, whatever. Then they added it to the 1.8T models for the last couple years....
