      None of this is surprising. This is VW/Audi SOP. The North American market gets cheaper cars so they spend as little as possible to stay competitive here. EU country buyers are will to pay more...

      Adding another gear will not necessarily mean the character of the S-tronic will change.

      Not likely at all. That generally doesn't happen with cars. The manufacturers offer updates to fix problems, not to make older cars match the output of new ones they are trying to sell today. ...

      Yup. They put a great deal of effort into mapping controllers. After that, anyone can app their way from that point. I doubt there would be a less expensive app if users and Ross Tech were not...

      Current grid maybe, but not the current grid and the current generating capacity. You are aware that California Edison is currently working on capacity project right? They are making forcasts based...

      And somehow Teslas (and more) represent 100% of the market.

      Stats from 2004 and 2005 are not material considering there was virtually no EV demand on the electrical grid back then. As you displace the vast amount of gasoline demand to the electrical grid,...

      Rare earth elements are used in motors and regenerative braking systems.

      It has absolutely nothing to do with US Government regulations. The fuel economy difference between a 6 dsg Golf R and 6sp manual Golf R is small and not going to matter in the slightest in meeting...

      European market penetration of manuals far exceeds US demand so they get (and pay for) more powertrain options. We get fewer combinations and what shows up in Sweden means nothing here.

      I bought in December and took the 2.9% rate since there was another grand from AFS in the deal if I finance thru them. I figured the $1,000 makes up for the 1% and the car will be paid off years...

      Promotional rates are generally not negotiable. Non-promotional rates tend to have room for play. In a non-promotional financing situation with Audi Financial Services, the dealer is given a rate...

      The same thing can happen (and has) with metal pans. And you're right. The dealer will make it your fault. Anytime you strike something with your car, it's your fault and not the manufacturer or...

      Unfortunately, my head unit does not allow me to stream bluetooth audio instructions and listen to my head unit's media or satellite radio. It's an either or proposition. Also, downloading maps in...

      Not everything is for everyone. I don't spent my time wondering why other people's choices don't match mine.

      I have built in GPS in my cars and a Garmin for when I'm in a rental or another...

      Audi has stated that they are done with manuals. Sadly, they don't want to cater to those who want them. If you want a manual, you're not the customer they are looking for.

      The Golf Alltrack is more than rumor. A plant in Mexico was upgraded to produce it so it will be built there. The only logical choice for that upgrade is to sell Alltracks in North, South, and...

      Well why in the hell are you asking us since you know all of this. Get to it. Don't see or forsee anyone else wanting to do this. This isn't as simple as a Mk 4 or Mk 1 swap. Those are easier.

      Being that I own both a Mk7 Golf and a A3 8V, I can tell you that what you suggest is ridiculous in cost if you couldn't afford the A3 in the first place. Look at the hood latches. The A3 has two...
