      I was going to wait for a new Golf Sportwagon but stumbled onto a '14 S MT that I bought for $16,200 (plus doc, tax and tags). MSRP was $21,815. It may not be a MKVII, but I can live with 25% off.

      ^^This^^ :mad:

      I really want a wagon but the chances of getting a manual gas car (especially with a sunroof) are looking slimmer. The 4-door Golf was my backup.

      Not a clipper kit; those are Zender rocker panels and the bumpers have been moved close to the body (trimmed brackets in front, compressed impact cylinders in the rear).

      You can install the rails fairly easily, after factoring in dropping the headliner and measuring/drilling 8 holes. You could be looking at close to $2000 to have a dealer do it, though.
