In no particular order..
I've personally put my $$ where my mouth is, I said I would buy a 25th AE/GTI 337 when it came out and I did, I also said I would buy a MKIV R32 (and championed that cause since 2002) and did.
I would've bought a Concept R if VW released it here.
I would've entertained the thought of the GX3 if they brought it here.
I am still hoping that they will bring the Bluesport out over here.
I like the Golf Cabrio especially in the GTI and R versions, I live in South Florida and wouldn't mind a nice quick convertible, and would consider one of these if they were to bring them over, but considering VWs track record I'm not holding my breath.
2008 Lux Wagon, 2.0T with K&N Drop-in, H&R Sport Springs w/ Koni Sports, Badgeless Grill, LED Interior lights, Hella Smoked Headlights w/ DMM HID Kit, Custom tinted tails, Votex front lip, hatch spoiler and side skirts. 18" VMR 701.
If VW will produce a golf cabriolet and it will be accesible in comparison to other brands, then it will be a succes for VW......

All that its missing is the slight raise in the back like in the Cabrio, the roll-bar (it just isn't a Cabriolet without it) and to shave a few pounds on the sides. A manual-everything model would be pretty cool, and gives it a lower price. Talking about manual, I prefer a manual top over power, but if it isn't that much of a $$ difference then... sure I'll take it. Other than that, freaking nice
I wish they'd kept the rollbar too. Its what set the Cabrio apart from other convertibles and the new one looks naked and boring without it.
As an aside, I don't think of Cabrios as "girlie cars". If you want a compact convertible with some utility, its the only way to go, and I'll take one any day over the Eos. I'll just mention that most of the Jeep Wranglers I see are being driven by ladies, yet they avoid the girlie label.
