      One thing you must understand about automakers is that model year changeover points are closely held until *all* of the ducks are lined up in a row. At best, from an executive, you can expect to...

      Golfs in Germany/Europe won't get those features until the model year changeover in June. I highly doubt we get it until that same timeframe.

      I'm actually one of those oddballs who would prefer that DCC were a standalone option - I can do without the LSD, horsepower bump and uprated brakes, but drive comfort is more important to me as I...

      That's surprising considering that assembly of Performance Package models doesn't start until this week. It may be a pre-production unit used for media drives and dealership training.

      Interesting comment on the 550 - it echos my sentiments exactly. I drove a 2012 550 and found it to be completely underwhelming with the exception of freeway on-ramps. Holy cow, that thing hauled...
