      A $20k car is not going to be $7k after just 5 years unless it's been damaged. My $13k car (used 1 year) I bought 7 years ago is still worth $6-7k. I don't know how much it was new, but I do know it...

      There's retail, then invoice, then what the dealer actually pays. Retail is what you see on the dealer's websites or the national advertising from the brand. With a limited supply release like the...

      Agreed. Luckily, I'm not getting a GTI anyway, but a Golf.

      Interesting bit of info from that last video. The autobahn package has the red stripe through the headlights, the S and SE do not. The red one in the video seems to be an SE.

      That's kind of odd, Drew. Shouldn't you be able to sell as many as you can and get them delivered as supply can be met? Seems like you are being limited by your own dealership?

      If you did go aftermarket, you'd find you could easily spend about the same money and end up improving ride quality, performance, and fuel economy by getting high quality light weight wheels. A heavy...

      Problem with the TDI is that it will likely be packaged like the MKVI where it was basically a GTI with a diesel. Upgraded interior, suspension, etc, and of course price. I nearly bought a MKVI TDI,...

      Correct, but looking at pictures and videos, the 5.8 seems to be well proportioned for the dash.



      Mechanical. You can option to summer tires. Not sure if that is different wheels or not.

      Pretty similar. Only differences I spot are the perforated surrounds, the flaps on the L/R of the digital display and the hashes being more numerous on the dials. The super up-close picture makes it...

      Golf here. GTI costs too much and most of the improvements are in tracking, which I don't do. Fuel economy should be better by a few mpg in the Golf, too.

      Well that blows. I was considering Xenons, but don't want a sunroof. We'll see how things turn out, I suppose.

      Where's the Golf/TDI option(s)? This isn't just a GTI forum (and the R is a different forum, but I'll let it pass).

      Will probably go night blue. Hoping that is available on Golf as well as I won't go GTI.

      @chipe

      You could always go with the standard Golf instead of GTI, which is what I plan on doing. The 1.8T MKVII Golf isn't too far from the 2.0T MKVI GTI (especially if you go manual instead of...

      Not really. Some things standard on the GTI may be options on the Golf and some options on the GTI may not be available at all on the Golf. I'd love to get a Golf page as that's what I will end up...

      Ah, I should have paid more attention. I assumed they were speaking about the stock GTI wheels, but I guess not. I did look through the Tirerack database of VW wheels and saw almost all were within...

      I'm not a racecar driver (going Golf, not GTI), so I'm not terribly concerned with performance characteristics, but if I can get good looks with good ride quality it might be worth getting...

      Is it true that a lightweight wheel, say 15-17lbs vs the standard MKVII wheel of 28lbs, will make a significant difference in ride quality? The argument I see made is that the suspension is more...

      Cars like the Chevy Cruze already come with a 1.4T and that car sells quite well. The Eco version gets great mileage and drives alright for a gas sipper.

      Sucks to be you, almost every station near me is ethanol free. There are some that offer both, but most are 100% gas, and hardly any that are only ethanol added.
