      Lots of late model Toyta/Lexus, Honda/Acuras drive around with no lights on at all around here. This is mostly due to poor dash design where the cluster is lit up bright all the time and makes...

      VWoA are the ones who would be causing issues with warranty denial. The dealer would submit a claim to have the warranty work done. They get reimbursed by VW. Now in most cases VW approves, but...

      I had dedicated winters on 2 of my WRXs and they don't prevent you from having fun at all. These cars have more than enough power to slide around even with snows on.

      He's not. I felt the interior wasn't any better, but this was from only a few minutes spent inside. I think what threw me is the steering wheel, it's a better design in the mkvi imo. It is...

      Building a 3 door autobahn dsg on vw.ca with tech comes to $40,211. So $37,800 is $2,411 off msrp? :confused:
