      Wow, what are the other details there? That's slightly less than I'm paying on my used Wrangler right now. I'd be all over a MkVII R for the same payment I've got now!

      Ah, I hadn't caught up with that thread yet. Thanks for the clarification!

      Like others have said, the missing storage wouldn't necessarily bother me too much. The only think I ever put in there in my Mk VI R was my phone when it was connected to the MDI, and maybe a pen....

      I personally don't prefer the longer door. It's been my experience w/ a 2 door MkV and a 4 door MkVI that the shorter door is much more practical in real life parking situations. I can get the...

      So in a lease situation, what's the best thing to do with my old vehicle, for which I have a traditional loan? I've got probably $5k in equity in it right now. Would the best bet be to sell it on the...

      I had one on my Mk VI R, and it was a fantastic addition.

      I haven't driven a VII yet, so I can't make any direct comparisons.

      I live in Texas, so I'd be way more concerned about it being too hot to touch in the summer time! It can be a challenge shifting a manual car that's been outside on a 105 degree day...

      Depending on what state you live in, you get a break on sales tax when you trade in a vehicle. Basically, you only pay sales tax on the difference between the trade in value and the sale price of the...

      That's basically where I'm at. GTI S w/ PP and lighting will be 8-10k less than the base R (with lower insurance and better gas mileage), and probably have about 80-90% of the driving fun of the R...

      Check with your bank, credit union, insurance company, etc. They usually have great rates, and it's very helpful to walk in to a dealership and tell them you've already secured financing at X%, so...

      I was wondering the same thing! The pricing announcement seemed really clear to me. $36.5k for "base" DSG, $39k for loaded (Nav, DCC, Fender), both with an additional $900 or so for destination.

      On my Mk V and Mk VI, it happened as soon as I started the car every time. It's not noticeable unless the lights are actually on, though.

      I've never seen the platypus before, but I had a US Millworks on my Mk VI R, and I really liked it. Very solid and stable.
