man, talk about insult to inury.
My wife and I both have Gen II Sciroccos and we've have been lusting after the new gen since concepts started showing up. Then it comes to fruition and VWoA says they don't want it here. Now an even better version comes out and we still arn't getting this car. WTH VWoA
However, Forge Motorsports brought their Gen III Scirocco to SOWO this past weekend so my wife and I finally got to see one in the flash so to speak. Pictures do no justice. The car is drop dead sexy in person and looks far better then any golf/gti (sorry guy's, everyone has their personal preference ).
My wife even got to sit in it for a bit as we chatted with the folks from Forge UK. Great blokes by the way. They don't even understand why VWoA has their heads up their arse when it comes to this car.
I've even tried speaking with some VWoA reps at Bug-A-Palooza last month and they couldn't give a direct reason. Just that some high up's feel it would compete too much with the GTI in sales. I don't really see that since I would think the Scirocco would have more Audi Styled pricing (An I would pay it too) which will not fall into the range of the average GTI buyer as they still want some change left over for aftermarket bitz.
I really hope VWoA changes it's mind. I'll be sending them nice e-mails begging for this car till they bring it, or I can afford to have a pair of them imported.
