      That's basically where I'm at. GTI S w/ PP and lighting will be 8-10k less than the base R (with lower insurance and better gas mileage), and probably have about 80-90% of the driving fun of the R...

      Check with your bank, credit union, insurance company, etc. They usually have great rates, and it's very helpful to walk in to a dealership and tell them you've already secured financing at X%, so...

      Haha, holy crap does VW need to get their marketing department on the same page as itself!

      From the press release found here: http://media.vw.com/release/888/

      I was wondering the same thing! The pricing announcement seemed really clear to me. $36.5k for "base" DSG, $39k for loaded (Nav, DCC, Fender), both with an additional $900 or so for destination.

      Sorta. You push the stick to the side to enter manual control. Then you pull it backwards to shift up a gear, or push it forwards to shift down a gear (I may have that backwards, it's been a while...

      On my Mk V and Mk VI, it happened as soon as I started the car every time. It's not noticeable unless the lights are actually on, though.

      I've never seen the platypus before, but I had a US Millworks on my Mk VI R, and I really liked it. Very solid and stable.

      I have a feeling that's going to be the case. Didn't someone post something a while back that indicated there would be 4 configurations for the US R? I believe it was something like manual base and...

      In the US there's a deal where if you join SCCA (Sports Car Club of America), you can get any VW for $500 under invoice. The same deal applies to a number of large employers.

      I'm currently between VW's... can I still play? I'm waiting until next summer when the R and PP + DCC for the GTI are hopefully readily available so I can do some informed test driving.

      I've found similar things for trucks & SUV's in the states, but not for cars & hatchbacks (Go USA!). Hatchbag does ship to the US, though. I had one for my MKVI R.

      Yeah, I have to agree with y'all.

      On the MKVI, the Euro LED tails were worth it. The regular US-spec tails on the MKVI were unattractive and very old-school looking. The LED's were a huge...

      I'd say don't do the gotcha thing with the SCCA membership. Most/all dealerships should honor it, so that's your starting point for negotiations. Be upfront about it and say that the trade in value...

      Why would we want to install this? Sound, power, turbo spool speed, something else? All of the above? None of the above?

      Any video clips of before/after sound or performance?
