      For those that care* (*haters, please stay quiet), the video is in the city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Very southernmost part of the island. The tall building in the background that you can see at 1:02...

      I'm not intimately familiar with the exhaust design of the 991, but I had the baffles modified to "always open" on my PSE-fitted 997, and it took very little time (no more than 2 hours charged to...

      :thumbup::thumbup: Nothing more to add, than what an awesome thread! Thanks for sharing, OP!

      Ha, fair enough. They are certainly not new to the USA market. The fact remains, however, that this company is still not focused on the American consumer when designing most of their cars, with few...

      I'm quoting YTD. You're quoting sales from one month. August, no less, where there are tons of incentives going on to move certain models.

      Not to be argumentative, but that 25% figure seems high. Source? I've read it's closer to 15% here.

      As for market share, well, VW does have their work cut out for themselves; no argument here....

      If that's what you thought I meant then you need to work on your reading comprehension. Let me be more clear: the US market, an aspirational growth market for VW, will probably see a sales dip, but...

      I can't believe how much the naysayers think this is going to affect such a global brand. Strategically, the USA is a growth market for VW, not a core one.

      Cheap gas + the American public's...

      Not trolling/no sarcasm. Not to derail the thread and start having a debate on the interiors, but IMHO, the 997.2 interiors look significantly more modern. Perhaps it's because of the black color,...

      The interiors changed dramatically, specifically the center console. HUGE improvement over the 997.1, IMHO.

      Love this thread. Here's my baby (no filter, just Motorola Startac potato phone):

      I hear ya OP. My folks bought an '03 B5 W8 (MT!) wagon and still have it. 140k and ticking! The car is highly controversial on TCL, but they, and I, love it so much that it forced my hand to...

      If you want PDK I would HIGHLY recommend buying used. In my experience, PDKs are more commonplace and less desirable in the secondary market, so you will take a whack on resale value b/c of it,...

      Great pics! You even snapped a pic of me chatting it up w/ a few fellow 997 owners behind the red turbo. That guy in the Cruze is a trip....what's his deal?
