      I wonder how many Rs my dealership (Norden) is being allocated. Once I find out more information I will let you guys know. Feel free to give me a call if you are interested in an R!

      What kind of deposit are you taking.....really considering the trade on my '09 UG GTI 4Dr.....DSG would seal the deal but it is not to be.

      Goddamnit. I wanted 2 door + DSG.
      I could live with the manual, but 4 door... christ on a crutch it's ugly.

      Sounds like every dealer in Calgary has at least 2 or 3 deposits down already.

      It seems like no option will be available in Canada, so if it comes with Sunroof, xenon and climatronic, i'll put a deposit down!!

      The thoughts of the dealers seem to be that we will get a 4 door high end optioned only version. Which is fine by me because that's what I want to order anyhow. Just wish it would come with the DSG and ACC.

      I am not so sure we will get the optioned out car due to cost. Canadian dollar wise the car is going to be around $40K with the sunroof sat nav autobahn package it will be around $45K with our taxes and everything else that gets thrown on Hmmmmm Alot of people will be thrown off by a $50K Golf. This is only my 2 cents I cannot back it up with any facts just my logical thinking. Also anyone wondering about a down payment most dealerships will be happy with $500.

      I'm hoping $45k range full load taxes in, $50k seems too high. If it is $50k i'll walk away. my dealer wanted $500 down and $4500 when I place the order.

      We probably won't see pricing and list of standard features until spring time.

      I was told that VW Canada would only bring it here if the MSRP was under $40,000, so loaded no options plus taxes and fees plus freight and PDI, so ya close to $45,000 all in.
      Just speculating...

      $5000 deposit gets you a seat in line

      $5000 seems like a hefty deposit for a car that's not going to arrive for another 14-15 months....is this standard with new releases? Just askin'....

      Most places for a special order car costing lots.
      Keep in mind this is a probably going to be a limited production run ( 500 cars for Canada ) so the more money down the more serious you are.

      I put down a $500 deposit in Calgary, and I'm first in line to order. $5000? You're dreaming!

      Same thing for me, the dealership took my $500 deposit, I will get the first 1 to arrive, now I wait and organize what I want for mods. There was a rumour that all the Canadian cars will be Blue I dont know if there is anything substantial to back this up as it was originally thought there would be a choice of 3 colours. Time will tell

      I would also like the car to come in around the low 40's thats why I dont think we will get the optioned out model, once again j m 2 c's.

      Price is not really a dealbreaker for me, i'll be willing to pay up to 50K including taxes. But, it must be fully loaded. The only option I really dont care is the NAV............

      But my guess, the R will be around 41/42 999$ +TX........

      The new cheaper NAV is just fine and works great. I hope they put that in as it's only a $890 option and I've done tons of testing with it.

      I've got my prediction in with $43000 base price.

      hhhmmmm interesting talk here. I think I am going to actually wait until I see one in person to decide on a deposit etc. If there is only one color and a 4 door coming to Canada I will not be interested at all.
