      Building a 3 door autobahn dsg on vw.ca with tech comes to $40,211. So $37,800 is $2,411 off msrp? :confused:

      There's ~ $3,000 markup on them.

      It's the 13% sales tax that really makes the price shoot up OTD in the Eastern provinces vs 5% out here.

      In Canada they are taking ~$3,000 off msrp due to employee pricing and "delivery allowance" without even having to negotiate. And combining that with low rates. Perfect time to order one.

      Exactly. Also I personally don't know many people that keep their cars past 5 years anyway.

      I highly doubt this would be an issue if you returned it after lease was over. They probably wouldn't even notice. I would still take it in though because technically equipped this way your GTI is...

      No, I'm referring to the lease aquisition fee. I was told it was a fee to "register the lease" at the begining of term. The $500 lease buyout fee is still there but at the end of the lease.

      My guess is the 1.8T puts out 200ft-lbs in all applications. All the reviews and tests agree that it seems Jetta 1.8, Passat 1.8 and now Golf 1.8, all feel like they have more tq than they do. ...

      The dealer I go to had a bunch of extras which I can deal with on my own. My question is if you lease what is the deal with the "lease aquisition fee" It's around $400-500. This isn't in place for...

      I can't find the tq ratings in the spec sheet. Everything I've seen says it's the 184ft/lbs rating. It would also make 0 sense for Golf to need premium gas when GTI doesn't need it and has premium...
