      the pics of the white one posted by jaegervw2 are soo much better, that cars is sick because its actually a fast back like the scirocco, not a ghey hatch back.

    2. 05-21-2009 05:09 PM #107
      I hope they have a better re sale value than the old ones. Mine 88 scirocco is in good shape and I can't even get rid of it for $500.

    3. 05-21-2009 05:13 PM #108
      well if they bring over a limited number and they sell well (like the 04 R32) then they will hold their value

      at this rate I may be driving my '04 R32 for the rest of my life, sorry VW, but you haven't given me an excuse to trade up yet....

      Please attach the picture of the civic your talking abut. I never saw an agressive style 2 door hatch by honda that is out now. I must be missing something. POST THOSE PICS UP ASAP because I might go trade in my GTI

      Here is the current style.....


      Notice...Im just posting the pic he asked for...Im not saying the rocco looks like an civc or anything.(Thats what the mk5 golf was for)

      And as stated earlier.... This Scirocco or the Focus RS would be pushing $40-50k

      Can't they just offer RWD or even AWD for once??? I no the car would be fun to drive even in FWD but come on, just one car.

    11. 05-22-2009 02:09 AM #116
      This car definitely makes me want to reconsider getting a GTi.

    12. 05-22-2009 05:26 AM #117
      Can anyone repaint it in black?

    13. 05-22-2009 07:00 AM #118
      VWoA back in 2002 this forum pushed hard for the Euro 25th GTI and you gave us the 337, 1500 copies that had a internet presale and nearly half of the sold online the rest sold at sticker the second they hit the dealers books. The car went over so well that the next year you gave us the 20th which also sold well and has one of the best resale values of any VW. So why can't we go that route again, make it a very limited edition high priced decked out version of the car. Put it in all the US auto shows, and generate some excitement for the VW brand. Everyone will want to come see it, the die hards will buy it, and everyone else will be in your showrooms so you can show them how great and inexpensive most of the rest of your line up is. Generate some buzz, please your fans, sell some other models.

      The process of bringing us the 337 required no federalization costs; chassis/engine/trans combo already existed here.

      The Scirocco is an entirely new chassis and requires extensive testing before making it to US showrooms. So just getting the car to market already puts it in a big hole, financially speaking, and low sales volume predictions make it a losing proposition as far as VW is concerned.

      Finally, it's VW's position that a relatively large percentage of US Scirocco sales would equate to a relatively large percentage of fewer GTI sales.

      This car should of been put out instead of the GTI by far the hottest new addition to the VW lineup.. Now please bring it to the states so i can sell all my cars and just have one sweet Scirocco!!! I also back the statement that they should at least put out a RWD model i mean seriously just 1 that isn't air cooled pleaseee

      Let's not get our hopes up as the US will probaby NEVER see this car

      Very true.


      Regardless,... this car should have been a fastback - like the original Scirocco and Corrado. As a hatchback, it just looks like a shorter Golf.

      who cares, never coming to the usa

      and plus, if is a stock VW, it has 0 balls and is so whimpy it drives like a grandma's car. I have a 04 gti and it is like a anyother stock whimpy car available.

      Unless it is modded to the extremes, all cars are *****. Maybe a corvette or a porsche is an exception, but a VW? hahah

      First off, this car is sex on wheels. Period. With the Rieger front end... O M G !

      VWoA,

      I was one of the many that responded to the official poll in '02 or '03 to please bring the MK4 R32 to the states. You asked me if you could bring a few thousand over, and it was around 30K, would I actually buy it. I gave you my word, and acted on it once you did so. This is the FIRST car that you have me REALLY excited about since that time. I now outright own my MK4 R32. However, I would look to sell it, and again give you my word, if you bring this car over to the states for around 30-33k, you'd have a pre-sale order from me. The US has a market for this as well!

      Please and Thank you!

      IMO, I still they need to make it a true fast back like so:

      Is this a recent concept, or is this pre Scirocco3 pics? Those lines are off the chain! ^

      I do believe that a 6spd will be available, look at the part in this article that mentions the (...opt for the DSG box) in this article. Evo likes to get the jump on info like this even if it is only a day ahead of everyone else...

      which is even more pathetic and shows how stupid you are.

      So, as you say, everybody in the world should be driving a car on the level of Corvette, Porsche or Ferrari, and that everything else on the road is a piece of ****. And anybody who buys a car that costs less then 40 grand is stupid and pathetic. By your wonderful logic, every car that costs less then 40 grand should be taken off the market. Because, of course, everybody needs to be able to get to work going 170mph, right? So why haven't you bought a Porsche yet?

      who is this 'fluxburn64" and why is he on this forum , other than to flame? comments not on topic and no less short of threats of giving someone aids should be banned for life

      it's one thing to just say you don't like the car, it's a whole 'nother thing to call everyone (including yourself by your own 'wisdom') a moron. 'nough about that.

      back to the real topic. The Scirocco_R HEY VWOA if "its' vhat da people vant" as your new slogan, then quess what?
      This car "IS VHAT DA PEOPLE VANT!"
