      I think you just stepped over a line, even tried hard to do so, but still tripped to fall into disgrace.

      Spicy hot results.

      A couple of years ago, we went to San Diego, passing everyone on the Grapevine with ease and at high speed with three people and tons of luggage for a one-week beach trip. With...

      I doubt it, since after getting into first, upshifts can be quite fast with very little clutch slip (or virtually none, at all). I bet your timing is a little off. Either you are getting off the...

      It actually is, here, if you mean "regular" by gas - for about half of the year. And either cheaper or roughly about the same, averaged over the year. YMMV.

      And that is a good thing, since the majority of European Taxis that are financed for long life and low maintenance costs have those.

      I guess her virtues are that she is rather unfazed, in Teutonic tradition.

      Try accelerating late and briskly up-hill, and more-or-less coasting downhill. Diesels love (and work most efficiently) under load, so it is important to concentrate you car's work there - where it...

      About +-.5 mpg difference, here, either way, between the displayed mileage and paper and pencil. So, in my case, the display is very accurate.

      Manual transmission generally gets about 10% better...

      That's the DSG, which has a very low rev limiter. The MT is quite different, and as I mentioned. revs very freely to about 4,600 rpm and even works up to 5,000 rpm (although that doesn't gain you...

      I have seen a couple of Macans recently in real life, here, and I think the styling is really well-executed. Looks good - although I doubt I can afford one even if it is available in AWD Diesel MT. ...

      Yes, sorry - I did misunderstand s0l0ma.

      I think that twin turbo TDI engine would be absolutely great with the electro-mechanical LSD of the "Power Pack" GTI, though.

      I do think there are fuel...

      4 1/2 years and > 40,000 miles, here, and zero problems.

      I have the manual transmission, so I routinely get 50-53 mpg highway if I stay at 65-70 mph and drive at least ~8 miles (the DSG gets about...

      If by "regional" you mean most states around and west of the Rockies, you are correct.

      My stock MkVI TDI was measured by Edmunds to have better slalom and g-force circle numbers than the contemporary GTI (likely because 17" wheels are better for the platform than the GTI's 18").

      It's about $3.50, $3.70, and $3.80 here, now - for regular, premium, and Diesel. That means, Diesel is finally (winter is approaching) a whopping <3% more than premium - and about the first time in...
