      So this is really dumb, but in a number of cars there's ambient lighting or gauge illumination you can change, right? A number of cars are now coming equipped with 'Soundaktor' type audio engine note...

      Poor man's Charlie Day?

      Also, am I the only one that wants to pronounce it 'cassKAYduh' and not 'CASScahhduh'?

      I'm surprised VW didn't use the Heritage wheels for the Generation Six model:

      It's amusing to me to think that this model's been available for 65 years and it's only on its 6th generation.

      We obviously won't agree on the 4 door thing, and there's nothing wrong with that. :wave:

      I think they need to let go of the GTI *OR* Beetle internal 'argument' that they're having. Why not offer...

      But the Mustang and the Corvette are a pony car and a full-on sports car, not what is (essentially) a 4 person hatchback. I agree with you that it is an icon, but icons have to adapt with the times....

      Or an animated gif where the car stays the same, but the wheels change. :laugh:

      If I remember correctly, only black Heritage wheels came to the U.S. Folks in Europe could order white or silver Heritage wheels, but we didn't get those. Well, until the "Classic" model came here...

      I'm almost certain I read that manual transmission will be available on all TDI Sportwagens. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm not remembering correctly.

      Bolded turbo's point above: definitely check out another dealer and go with the tech on a drive. For years I took my misc. VWs to my closest dealer and they always blew me off on the first visit. It...

      YEP! This ^^^^

      You may also want to buy the chrome trim rings through your local dealer. They really complete the look.

      Here's a gallery of photos that shows how the Heritage wheels are set...

      Some information:
      - Beetle "Heritage" wheels only come in 17" sizes
      - These are an alloy wheel with a hubcap that fits into the hole for the centercap
      - There are also chrome trim rings that snap...

      I'm watching it a second time and I'm picking up jokes I missed the first go-around.

      I should edit my post: I think 'IMMEDIATE future' would have been better to say than 'foreseeable future.' Jamie has said they're working on it (AWD and TDI) to get it in MQB GSW, but it's not an...

      THIS. I'm not sure why they ignore the (sales) successes of the MKIV models. They sold like gangbusters because they were stylish without being garish and stood out from the pack. Too bad the...

      I've got to agree with you on most points. VWoA really needs an American at the helm, but we all know that isn't going to happen. VW is just now realizing they are far too conservative with their...

      I'm not sure what they are worldwide, but here in the U.S. the Golf (and GTI) and the Beetle have had similar sales over the past few years. I'm sure there will be substantially less Beetle sales...
