      Eeeehhhh IDK about that. There's been bastardization of "blue", the color blue, and things that are typically blue, all to the end of implying some sort of eco-friendliness and not referring to DEF....

      Yeah pretty much.:thumbdown: Why they couldn't keep the same shape rear pillar window as on the SWB model I don't know.

      The SWB has great "stubby but muscular" proportions. This looks too...

      I wouldn't count on that being retained for US production. It's a bit tough to tell but the front of the car doesn't appear to have USA-spec amber side reflectors, so I would guess this prototype is...

      The 02B manual transmission was bolted from the factory to both 4-and-5-cylinder motors, yes. The bellhousing is dual-drilled to do so.

      However what I can't confirm is if the 1.8T is one of them. ...

      Mk7 Golfs are available with the 1.4T across the pond. If MQB is as flexible as it claims to be, the should get some 1.4Ts up and going out of Puebla. Given Dieselgate, why there are no Mk7 Golf...

      However, the road was clearly marked with the thicker broken striping that indicates that the lane exits and is not for through-traffic. It was clear that the lane was for exiting.

      EU/rest-of-world OK yes since no side marker light or reflector, but UK? If that's the case (UK), they are made for RHD/LHT vehicles and are 100% *WRONG* for US roads in...

      The factory lighting package is of course ideal but Volkswagen has chosen to make its availability spotty depending on trim level. You can go up in trim levels but then you put the other...

      Even if you do a buyback, you have quite some time to do it (1-2 years from now, right?). Since I still had my Dieselgate "don't hate us" $1K money, I did my 60K service and new Conti tires all...

      It's much ado about nothing.

      For infotainment and instrument clusters, they're almost always farmed out to external suppliers (thinking along the lines of VW and suppliers such as VDO, Bosch,...

      Kinda thought about that. Still is kind pricey though for factory HIDs to get everything together.
