      The new WRX interior is actually really nice - I drove one last week. I could easily live with it and I'm used to VW interiors, having owned 15 or so between my wife and I. I'm pretty much down to a...

      It's all speculation at this point since we in the US haven't gotten our hands on the GTI yet. it also depends on how you define "better driving car". Based on past experience, I think the GTI will...

      I agree that the window thing is a little weaksauce as is the stereo that looks and sounds like it came straight from the 80's (and the nav is totally chintzy too). Also the fake carbon fiber trim on...

      I posted this on a thread in the car lounge, but it might help people here too so I'm copy/pasting it:

      I'm very interested in the new WRX as a replacement for my 2012 VW GLI so I stopped at my local dealer and drove a black limited with CVT this afternoon. I was very impressed.

      The thought has crossed my mind, but I'll most likely be going for DSG and I think the Golf will have a "regular" automatic so GTI (or Golf R if I decide I'm willing to drop the extra coin) for me.

      The leatherette in my '12 GLI is immaculate and looks as good now after 30K miles as it did new. It's one of the only things about the car that have held up over time.

      I guess "force" is the wrong word :laugh:. Basically I want to be able to buy on my schedule, not VW's. It doesn't seem like too much to ask considering the cost of these cars. The way they do things...

      I'm not as offended by the 4 door thing as you are (though my preference would be for 2) but I think you're spot-on about everything else. I've always wanted an R car but for whatever reason I...

      I read on Autoblog a few days ago that the next-gen Audi S3 sedan will be here as a DSG-only model. Since this car has essentially the same powerplant as the Golf R, I think that would make the case...

      Sure - if you drive it in manual mode using either the paddle shifters (which is my preference) or the up/down stick selector it's just as much fun and is as engaging a driving experience as a manual...

      I used to be a die-hard manual driver until a change in employment had me driving in heavily trafficked city congestion every day. All of a sudden my beloved manual wasn't so entertaining. I...

      In for info on the R - this will most likely be my next car (provided pricing is acceptable, of course).

      Fixing squeaky watch bracelet?

      I picked up a Seiko Kinetic SKA553 over the weekend which I like a lot as an everyday daily use watch. I've noticed that the bracelet squeaks a bit as it flexes. Before I break out the WD-40 and...

      I was very close to buying a pair of their Verus Grand towers this week for my 2 channel system but I found a screaming deal on something else instead. From everything I've read, they are a great buy...

      Not a chance - the current Jetta is a big step down from what I'm used to from VW. I'm really hoping the MKVII GTI will get the VW build quality back where it should be.

      I've had problems with (non VW) first year cars in the past, but the one time I had bought a first year VW (my old '06 GTI) turned out to be pretty much the best VW I've ever owned and I'm on number...
