      They've dumbed down the mk7 TDI to the point where I'm thinking of going with the Golf hybrid instead. I'm assuming it has IRS since there is no Urea tank to worry about? It will be available in...
    2. Exactly. They already went through this with the...

      Exactly. They already went through this with the Jetta. They introduced it with a torsion beam and people complained and they had to reintroduce IRS.

      I see they also made the Golf's fuel tank...

      All this talk about how the MQB platform and it being made in Mexico will allow more options is complete BS. We are getting less than before.
    4. While you may be right about the quality of the...

      While you may be right about the quality of the fuel not making enough of a difference to eliminate the need for Urea it's well known their diesel fuel is of a higher grade. Our poor quality diesel...

      It's not just the GTD but the regular TDI versions of the Golf, Jetta and A3 that would need to be redesigned to fit the Urea tank along with an IRS. All of these are getting a torsion beam rear...

      It's amazing to me that VW couldn't design a AdBlue tank that could fit along with an IRS opting instead for a torsion beam even on the A3. I guess that means the 2015 Jetta will go back to a...
    7. Maybe those will go back to torsion beam this...

      Maybe those will go back to torsion beam this fall since they too are getting the EA288 TDI engine with AdBlue. Its hard to believe VW couldn't design the tank to fit and instead will use a torsion...

      Isn't there a more strict Euro emissions standard coming next year that will require the use of AdBlue? It was said we won't see IRS on the mk7 until then because it didn't make sense to redesign it...

      The engine in the mk7 Golf TDI is all new and it's also the first time it will use UREA. A leaked brochure for the A3 mentioned a torsion beam rear suspension for the TDI model and if that's true...

      I'm worried about the TDI model. Jamie mentioned that the other Golf models would have more options than in the past except for the TDI which is expected to come in at a lower price which I guess...

      Discover Pro navigation adds a higher resolution 8 inch screen @ 800x480 (vs 5.8 inch @ 400x240), DVD playback in addition to CD, a 64GB SSD instead of relying on an SD card for maps/music, UMTS...

      LED taillights are pretty much standard now. I've seen them on $15,000 cars. Do you mean the actual backup (reverse) lights?

      It looks like we won't be getting the nicer Discover Pro navigation as an option, just the basic navigation. I wonder if we will ever get it, maybe as a delayed introduction. Not holding my breath...

      Ugh. :banghead:

      If the A3 TDI doesn't have IRS then neither will the Golf TDI. I believe Jamie said that *if* the GTD makes it here it won't be until after the more stringing emissions laws go...

      Jamie,

      The Golf Hybrid uses the same setup as the GTE (which we're not getting apparently) and both of these use the same setup as the A3 Sportback e-tron, correct? Do you think we will get the...

      Yeah, I was confusing the e-Golf with the Golf Hybrid which we're also supposed to get eventually and that is identical to the Audi A3 e-tron setup.

      Just as long as they bring the GTD to the US I'll be happy.

      We are still getting the e-Golf plug-in hybrid which has the same performance as the GTE minus the upgraded suspension bits and...

      Have you heard anything about the Golf TwinDrive / GTE plug-in hybrid? I imagine it would follow the introduction of the A3 e-tron.

      The specs they listed for the Golf GTE match those of the Golf Twin Drive plug-in hybrid including the 0-60 time and supposedly they are planning on bringing the Twin Drive over some time after the...
