      Some would argue that Moffatt has been on a murderous spree with his direction of the show the past few years....;)

      As a fan of both shows I can tell you that this is not the case. Top Gear draws people in due to the chemistry between the hosts. Without the three of them the show loses 95% of its charm. People...

      JTunhanen -

      Just read that a moment ago and it's spot on. Of course I don't condone what Clarkson is alleged to have done, but I know of plenty of people who have had workplace scraps far, far...

      The only real reason I'm interested in the Performance Package is because it is a prerequisite to the adaptive suspension (DCC), otherwise I would be able to do without.

      My understanding is that VW builds cars in batches - it's not like cars 1, 2, 3 down the assembly line are Performance models, then 4, 5, 6 are standard Autobahn and 7, 8, 9 are SE, etc. They are...

      DCC on an S? I know that there were a few Performance Package models that slipped through with S trim, but I didn't think DCC would be available as well, unless that too was an accident.

      There's a very small markup for the dealer, but we're not talking more than a few hundred dollars.

      Volkswagen (wisely) reversed course and the GTI is now called "Golf GTI" here in North America.

      B9 A4 was recently confirmed for Frankfurt. No word on the A5, but I would suspect that will be 3-6 mos. behind the A4. I could see the A5 debuting at Los Angeles or Detroit in January (though I put...

      Unfortunately, most dealerships are uninterested in catering to people who are not buying a new car today.

      That said, a good number of them will seriously work with you if you walk in, tell them...

      I have a decent amount of seat time in the old 8P A3, the new A3 sedan and the new GTI.

      The new GTI and A3, while sharing 75% of the same components, feel like completely different cars. Both...

      Since the stampings are already built for the MK7, the two door is safe for now. When the stamping forms change for the MK8 I'd put a very high chance on the two door going bye-bye.

      14to9 -

      The standard I Am Not a Lawyer (IANAL) warning applies, but in all of my business dealings, when there is a sale of the business it's generally accepted that existing contracts and...

      If you have a signed sales order, then this isn't legal.

      If you do not have a signed sales order with a deposit, it's at the dealership's discretion.

      Poor business practice, agreed; But not...

      Exactly. The current Jetta and Passat feel like 'penalty box' cars, as though the executives in Wolfsburg said, "Fine, you Americans want your cars less expensive, we'll give you what you're asking...

      Currencies are generally hedged to help avoid major swings; So more than likely, no.

      Unfortunately, your first problem will be that Audi elected to *not* bring the Sportback (wagon) body style to the US for MY2015. We will be getting the e-tron Sportback, and there are discussions...
