      I'm baffled by it too. I'm sure there's a venn diagram of outback buyers and VW buyer demographic and I'll bet they overlap quite a bit.

      I know people that buy outbacks here because of the non...

      CSB Alert:

      I was changing planes in Frankfurt on April 6 and saw two of these sitting on the tarmac on air cargo pallets. I wonder if they were the ones heading to NY? The cover was partially...

      By looking at the photos above - that rear seat is different than the current one? The current one is 2 separate seat backs with a gap in the middle. Doesn't mean it seats 5 - but it sure looks...

      We have a 2006 v50 2.4i and the 2010 R-Design v50 and both wear rear pads faster. In fact my 1999 Passat did too. I can't find the article right now - but the way I understand it is that in many...

      Hate to post stock pictures - but I don't have any here and the car is a salt-covered mess.

      Looks identical to this (plus GIANT roof box for the skis :D)

      I guess that makes mine even more rare: V50 T5 + AWD + manual + facelift + R-Design :D

      JAplin - Nice score. Mine is also black and 6-speed....but a wagon! I've had it for about a year and am...

      CA --> Basel? Biotech or Pharma? ;)

      Basel is a nice place, been there many times. Lots of people bike to work. Don't discount the idea of living across the border in Germany or France...getting...

      Google "Dutch Disease" and you'll understand why manufacturing in Australia is having such a hard time. Their success in mining had made the Aussie dollar so strong that anything made in-country is...

      I'm debating about these or DWS. I'm waiting for some real-world feedback on how they are in the snow. I'm sure DWS will be better in snow - but if the A3's are not truly awful in the snow I may...

      My memory is playing trick on me... they own some of the names. They do own "sprite". Nanjing now owns a lot of the old names since they bought MG. I've read on other sites that BMW owns all of...

      Apparently they own the several of the naming rights to the Austin-Morris vehicles.

      Make this concept in coupe and convertible and call it a "sprite"

      Wow, that unicorn is about 1/2 mile from me right now....might have to drive by.

      I have my own sort-of unicorn wagon ... Volvo V50 R-Design, 6 speed manual. Not much more passenger room than a 4...

      We are looking to get rid of our v50. I was looking at 2010 and newer xc70s but couldn't get my head around 14-15 mpg in the city. I hope I can wait until they announce pricing for the v60 - looks...

      Any new transmission news? I heard rumors of 8-speed automatic at some point. That would help fuel economy ratings....especially for the V70, XC70, and S80 especially.

      Turbo replacing the 5 cyl - that's cool. Any news on potential tuning potential for new 1.8? I wonder if it is a flash away from 200hp?

      More trunk space and I would have bought /leased it.

      Loved my test drive - but a more wagon/5-door like design would fit my needs better.

      Until recently you could buy the car however you wanted too (finance, lease, pay cash, etc). I was just at my dealer discussing this with a very experienced OSD guy - as of right now he was not sure...
