      Late Mk1s in Canada were also badged as "Golf Cabriolet", presumably from 1985-1993 when the Rabbit name was dropped.

      EDIT: Found a pic of which I speak:

      I wonder how many people who say "OMG! I'M BUYING ONE!! OMG THEY BETTER BRING IT!!!" will actually go out and buy one if they came out?

      Money talks. Bullsh*t drives broken, rusty mk3's
      Easy like Sunday Morning.

      VW's recent history has been show a cool concept, get tremendous (positive) feedback and then wuss out in bringing it to market.

      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.

      I'm with you, specially on the GX3. I still dream about that thing...

      I followed the MKIV R32 for over a year and got a new one, and I was ready to buy a GX3 if it would have made it. VW is a great teaser, but falls flat on its face.

      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......

      VW should dump the eos for this cabby. The Cabrio will appeal to a to boarder market and most of all this cabrio will open more wallets. Wake UP 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

      Ditto! They pretend the GTI isn't a Golf.

      Well hang on there. The Germans aren't exactly stressing the Golf relationship either anymore:


      No "Golf" badge anymore.

      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.

      Although, I'm sure its added cost and complexity to the vehicle - the trade off might have been weight savings?
