      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.

      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...
