      Disappointing, yet not terribly surprising. You'd think there would be more info by now---however guarded---if it were a "go."

      Okay, maybe I'm a dope or something, but how do remote starters work on cars with manuals? Or do they at all? I always leave my manual in gear, and use the emergency brake, even on level, flat...

      Is it me? My eyes? My sense of proportion? My ever-fading memory? Or has this thing swelled to the size of our B5 Passat wagon from 2001?

      I know everything tends to get bigger with each rev. ...

      The secondary problem, if you live in a hot, bright climate like here in Florida ( aka, "God's Waiting Room" ) is if you don't garage it or keep it cleaned / waxed, the paint has a tendency to...

      With small kids, you'll probably do better with a wagon / estate / variant / whatever-the-hell-they-call-the-new-one-stateside. Hoping they have a GTD version available like they do overseas.

      Oi, those GTI numbers are pretty painful. A few observations:

      1. Canadian taxes are pretty steep relative to the US, so that's not helping the OtD pricing;

      I'd REALLY like to believe that, and hope it does still come to fruition. Unfortunately, that article is six months old as of tomorrow, so things can change, for better or worse.

      Add a manual tranny, and I'd be in as well. Heck, I could live without the 4Motion. GTD engine & suspension? Even better!

      Well, in the States, it's pretty much exclusively been black, white, and red, right?
