      I am perfectly happy with 18s on a car of this wheelbase. Anything larger and, IMO, ride quality really begins to suffer. This is especially true if you live in an area with less than perfect roads. ...

      I'm *really* surprised that the lighting package is not standard on the Autobahn models, considering all they really add is Climatronic and Nav. We're talking $30k and Xenons aren't standard?...

      For the sake of clarification: is DCC available as a standalone option, or must it be purchased with the Performance Pack?

      I think you'll always be best served by going with a dedicated set of snow shoes if you have any form of winter accumulation where you live.

      As to the value of the PP for the 'average daily...

      Did you drive the new 2.0T or the 1.8? I've been in both and I wouldn't consider them to be "wheezy".

      Yeah, no doubt the chassis on the ATS is outstanding. Puts the current 3-series to shame, actually.

      The whole move to Puebla was to allow not necessarily lower prices, but higher level of content. One of, if not the biggest complaint from American consumers of the Golf/GTI in particular has been...

      I'm impressed that we get DCC with the Performance Pack for a whopping $800 additional in the Autobahn package. Very nice.

      Still sad that the cloth seats are only available on the base model....

      +1 - the worst time to purchase is March - June: tax returns infuse a lot of cash back into the economy. Used and new car prices both hold very strong during this time. July-September usually gets...

      Audi made a last minute decision to make dual zone climate control standard across the board - but cars were already on the boat to the US by that point in time. As a result, US-spec cars without...

      Don't know the franchise laws in Canada, but in the US you cannot be denied warranty service if you perform your own maintenance or go to a third party.

      They're dedicating the media coverage right now to the 2015 Jetta. The product announcement for the GTI was last year and the market launch for the GTI starts in a few weeks. No sense in chewing up...

      I've had a decent amount of seat time in the ATS 3.6 as well as the 2.0. I thought the 3.6 was a heluva car. My only complaints about it were CUE (I really dislike haptic interfaces in automobiles)...

      Keep in mind that the guide that was posted may not be the final. Last minute changes are not uncommon: case in point is the new A3 where at the last minute Audi changed their minds on the climate...

      It's a commodity once the initial surge of interest fades. Until then, were I the dealer, I'd be charging MSRP all day everyday until the market no longer bears it.

      DarkSide -

      I'm so sorry to hear about this turn. Best of luck to you.

      So, I now have to make the jokes:

      1. "Great, now all fifty of TCL members who have been crying about this for years can buy one!"
      2. "What a joke! Volkswagen won't sell it to me in brown. No...

      Chris -

      That's for localized production. I suspect we'll see similar contracts awarded for the Q5 being built at the new Mexican facility, slated to open in 2016 as well. There are two timelines...

      I've heard that too. I would also suspect there's another big reason: torsion beam is less expensive. TDI drivers on the whole are more interested in fuel economy than anything else, so they're not...
