Damned shame about the 2010 JSW lineup. Guess mine is now a limited edition or something.

Right. I was originally going for the TDi JSW till I realized you couldn't get a handful of options that I felt were necessary selling points, for me at least. So then I eyed up the SEL 2.0T and then heard of the 2010. After I saw the 2010 was dropping the SEL lineup all together I jumped into the 2009.
VW seems to be having a hard time with their pricing. They seem very close to stepping on Audi's toes all the time. The MSRP on my wagen was around 29K, w/ nav(if I got it) was closer to 31K. You're right into base model A4 Avant territory at that price, even base model E91 3er range as well. As of now with them dropping the premium trim lineup I would have no choice but to move up if I want to continue having the options that I enjoy. Not really a big deal, instead of getting a new car every 3-4 years well have to wait every 4-5. Their shooting themselves in the foot the way I look at it.
