      How bad do you want it? Start saving now, cut expenses and put the money saved into an account for the car. Cut cable, hold off buying a new phone, tablet, game console. Stop drinking (alcohol is...

      Oh by the way! If you do decide to go ahead and purchase a Wrangler (or any Jeep), get a membership with Tread Lightly:

      This is the boat I'm in. I had some money difficulties last year, so I had to get rid of my Golf R, but still went for a vehicle I always admire & lusted after when I see them around town: a Wrangler...

      Yup. Both had the same tails as the base model golf, I believe. Hideous on the Mk VI, and definitely worth upgrading to LED tails, whether aftermarket or OEM.

      For the Mk VII, I think the US...

      This was going to be my main suggestion. Also I agree that the music was too loud later in the video when your car was in motion. We wanna hear the exhaust!

      Interesting that they say there are no plans to produce the R in Puebla. I had assumed that was a longer-term goal after the first model year or two.

      Maybe the R will remain German-manufactured...

      For a lease that seems horrible. I was paying $500/month to purchase my Mk. VI Golf R.

      I was gonna ask the same thing. Those look like the LED tails to me, not the halogens that the NA GTI has.

      Based on my experience with going APR Stage 1 on my Mk VI R, software is typically in the neighborhood of $500, and the place you get it installed shouldn't charge more than like $40-50 for the...

      Good find!

      What's the box in the grill below the license plate? Is it a plug for a cold weather engine block heater?

      Yeah, that video is heavily (and fairly poorly) color corrected. The greens are shifted a little towards towards blue (grass and trees in real life have much more yellow than that), and the white...

      I'm going to be car shopping in the fall/winter of 2015, with the GTI and R at the top of my list.

      I'm definitely going to check out the new Mustang. It's been my favorite muscle car out of the...

      When I got my Golf R in summer 2012, they were doing 0% on all gas-engine vehicles. I got my R at 0%, so I assume the GTI would have also qualified.

      That's why I'm happy to be patient this time. I'm not going to start seriously shopping for probably a year and a half. It gives me loads of time to save up for a big down payment (or mods!), lets...

      And your first "FACT" is not a fact, but an assumption. Probably a pretty safe one for now, but still, we don't know 100% for sure. And some users like Jamie do have inside information, or at least...

      You're correct that VW has not explicitly stated that LED tails are coming on the US-spec R or GTI.

      HOWEVER, they also have not explicitly stated that LED tails are not coming to the US, so I...

      Since you have the company car, drive it (most of the time) in the winter. Keep the miles & funk off your R, especially since you say you want to keep it...
