      i'm no expert, but i'm highly skeptical about a 80 hp bump between generations. base hp in the gti went up like...60 hp in 4 generations (mkiv to mkvii)? I could MAYBE see this happening for a...

      the paint on the roof looks awful. but otherwise it looks pretty clean. i would definitely check it out if i were still living in socal. that model g35 was my first long term car, and i still have a...

      They have a new CUV slotted below the tiguan in size and price set to be released within a year or two. I think it's called the Taigun?

      Increasing the Tiguan's size makes perfect sense. It's...

      I'd be more than happy to cross-shop the wrx with the golf r if it: 1) was available as a hatchback, and 2) came with a dual-clutch transmission. until then, it is unfortunately far off my radar.

      Practical car #1/Wife's daily: VW Tiguan (current), to be replaced in 2016 (likely with VW Golf Sportswagen or Mini Clubman)

      very interesting. a few thoughts/questions:

      - What happened to the rumors of a 2.0T base engine? it seems odd to have a 400hp base unless they can price it similarly to the base-spec 3, A5, ATS,...

      This response seems to make the most sense. For the MKV golf, models with navigation had their CD changer placed under the center armrest. You could still lift the armrest (to access the cd changer)...

      The RS is undoubtedly a compelling package, but I told myself (and my wife) that my next daily would have an automatic transmission. So unless Ford plans on making an RS with an auto, I'm going with...

      eh, we'll have to wait and see about that. when the focus st was released a few years ago, it was supposed to be best in class, on paper at least. yet, in most tests it was outperformed by the msp3...

      yup. pretty sure the golf r was "at least 290hp" for quite some time too. 315hp is an impressive number for a hot hatch, no matter how one spins it. no dual-clutch option makes it a harder sell,...

      as a second vehicle, i would go with the Z hands down. it's lighter, faster, and has a naturally aspirated v6. and if you're willing, you can always go the CPO route and get one for under $30k.

      i'm fairly certain this is a common occurrence if you leave your car parked outside in cold weather. as others have mentioned, the snow from your boots melts onto the carpet or rubber mat. Difference...

      This is absolutely not true. California law states that only AWD vehicles with snow tires are allowed to forego chains in mountainous areas. This is pretty strictly enforced from my own experience.

      interesting how the torque numbers for a stage 1 mk7 gti and a stage 1 mk7 golf r are nearly identical, but the hp numbers are not.

      more like yuppies, given that the R costs almost $40k and because VW expects their target demographic to have a significant amount of disposable income.
