      The lease factors and finance rates for the Golf R will be higher than we are used to seeing advertised for much of the new product in the market. Just as with the Golf VI R, I am not expecting...

      That does not seem to be the case. In fact, the current days' of on the ground inventory supply is healthy for Golf TDI, but on the low side for Golf 1.8 TSI.
