      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.

      In the US there's a deal where if you join SCCA (Sports Car Club of America), you can get any VW for $500 under invoice. The same deal applies to a number of large employers.

      I'm currently between VW's... can I still play? I'm waiting until next summer when the R and PP + DCC for the GTI are hopefully readily available so I can do some informed test driving.

      I've found similar things for trucks & SUV's in the states, but not for cars & hatchbacks (Go USA!). Hatchbag does ship to the US, though. I had one for my MKVI R.

      Yeah, I have to agree with y'all.

      On the MKVI, the Euro LED tails were worth it. The regular US-spec tails on the MKVI were unattractive and very old-school looking. The LED's were a huge...

      I'd say don't do the gotcha thing with the SCCA membership. Most/all dealerships should honor it, so that's your starting point for negotiations. Be upfront about it and say that the trade in value...

      Why would we want to install this? Sound, power, turbo spool speed, something else? All of the above? None of the above?

      Any video clips of before/after sound or performance?
