      Pretty good prices, but then again you have to consider what was left out. I would strongly consider a GLI if it cost $26-27K with 6MT, HIDs, LED tails, 19" rims, fender, and synthetic leather, but without the sunroof, navi, kessy, chrome window/grille trim, or hideous chin lip. Or around $29-30K with everything (to keep the packages/options to a minimum which is what VW is aiming for).

      Now with official prices/specs out, the GLI is off my shopping list and the .:R still at the top. Best thing about the GLI is that it's actually coming out soon!

      Price is comparable to the GTI pricing....I am surprised multi-function wheel is standard as it is no longer for GTI

      Something to think about when my lease on the CC runs out. Do we know if the drivetrain is interchangeable with the GTI? i.e., my suspension and swaybars will work?

      No, I don't know if the suspension is interchangable, try asking Bud on his parts guy thread, he can look up parts and see if they match.

      The prices are lower then I anticipated. My 2011 SEL Sport manual w/ nav MSRP was just over 24K (with all charges and extras) so just about a 3K difference between the SEL sport and the GLI. In particular terms, from a leasing perspective, my guess is the GLI will be $100-$125 more a month. I still think the SEL will be a better value.

      So you can't hold out basically 1 more month? And because of that you will buy something else?

      I'm surprised about the cooled glove box... another MkV goodie that remains, at least in the GLI trim. A few good surprises along the way.

      It's not too bad. The original plan was late May/early June. It's about a 5 week shift.

      Is there any chance of going with the Autobahn trim but keeping 17" wheels? A dealer option, even?

      The order guides do not ever show curb weights, and neither does the GLI brochure. We don't have an training material yet that may show the weights.....

      Nope, not unless your dealer was willing to switch wheels with a non-Autobahn GLI.....

      I have a Dodge Ram with a Hemi, the brakes are warped, it's past due for an oil change, it costs $80+ to fill up the 26 gallon gas tank that will take me 280 miles, 300 if I baby it.

      So...I'm anxious like hell to get rid of it...especially with the recent gas hikes. I fill up once a week.... $80 X 4 = $320 a month. FML

      Not in my book... for $3k you get.

      2.0T over the 2.5 (worth $3k right there)
      DSG over Tip
      Soft touch dash
      Full MFD
      IRS instead of twist beam
      GTI like flat bottom steering wheel
      4 wheel disks

      In my book its the deal of the century.

      When I bought my MK5 GTI I never understood why people bought optioned up 2.5 Jettas that was close to my GTI sticker. Obviously it makes sense for some folks because they sold a ton of them.

      These items I will give you represent a significant improvement in vehicle performance over my SEL Sport. To be honest, I don't really need these thing in my daily driver. If I wanted to race, I'd go buy a proper race platform, I wouldn't mind scraping against a guard rail with. I can appreciate the tuner scene and the value they may have for this upgrades but I think they are in the minority. Really, who races brand new cars?

      These items are cosmetics. Maybe you like them better. The truth is they don't get you better gas mileage or performance. The "hard" dash, limited MFD and sport steering wheels are just fine for the cost savings. Nobody has refused a ride in my car yet because my steering wheel doesn't have a flat bottom. The SEL comes with 4 wheel disks, so I've eliminated that.

      If value to you is better 0-60 times, race-car like handling and better tuning options I can see how you see the value in the GTI. Value to me is getting me back and forth to work, taking clients out to dinner and not emptying my wallet when I fill up at the pump. For $125 more a month I fail to see how the GTI improves on these needs versus the SEL Sport.

      What's nice is that VW is giving you the choice.

      As long as you are happy with your purchase then it doesn't matter what others think but a car that is $3k more expensive doesn't cost $125 more per month to lease. Same logic would have a $33k car ($9k more total) car costing $375 more per month?

      Honestly the soft touch dash is meh.

      However the steering wheel is the only surface in your car you touch 100% of the time.

      Its amazing what a thick contoured steering wheel can do to your perception of luxury or sportiness.

      Just recently I sold my 2007 GTI... jumping out of my car and into my wifes golf with a plebian steering wheel illustrated this to me. Before we got my wifes Golf I never noticed my GTI's steering wheel.

      Plus the MFD is in your sight line... its hard to miss.



      Its hard to equate $100 a month to this.

      Honestly I never lease so the cost difference is just $3,000 spread over the length of ownership 5, 7, 10 years... it isn't so bad. Plus you get more at the end when you sell so you recoup most of that. Leasing is diff though.

      Every $1000 more is about $30/mo given similar residual ratios and money factors. So yes, a 33K vehicle would cost about $270-$300/mo more then a 24k vehicle. This is on par with what I am paying to lease my Tiguan, which was around 33K new, versus the Jetta at 23.5K.

      To show how important the residuals and money factors are, I was considering leasing a Jetta TDI, instead of the SEL Sport, which had nearly identical buy prices, but the TDI was $50/mo just based on weaker MF and residuals. I am sure the GLI deals will be more similar to the TDI then the SEL - which may make it more sensible to buy it then lease it.

      I do agree the flat bottom wheel is nice. But the SEL Sport wheel is no slouch, albeit no flat bottom ... have you seen it ?? It's certainly and upgrade from the base S steering wheel.




      OP: Any word on the MF and residual for the GLI?

      IMHO there are many, many reasons why to choose a GLI over an SEL.

      In the options list, don't forget to include other GLI-only goodies such as upholstered pillar trim, upgraded electronics, cooled glove box, electro-mechanical steering, etc that are currently only available in the GLI.

      Beyond that, I strongly believe that VW will be updating the Jetta's standard features within a year or two to address Consumer Reports' dropped recommendation of the Jetta; in essence CR thinks that the new model is just too cheap. If VW were to go so far as to even just to upgrade to the Euro dash in SE/SEL trims and update the grain of the door panel plastics, the 2011 and possibly 2012 non-GLI Jettas would become highly, highly undesirable in the resale market.

      Now, pair this with the rumors we've heard about things coming down the pipeline: replacement for the 2.Slow, possibly the 2.5 as well, a Hybrid version, possible HIDs, etc, etc.

      If any of these things happen, then the first one or two model year cars with crude interiors and dated, limited options will become dinosaurs on parking lots that no one wants. It's kind of like shopping for a used MkIV... anyone who knows anything about those cars knows to say the hell away from 1999-2000 because of an increased risk of electrical problems. The same will be true of the 2011-2012 non-GLI models if VW updates those cars.

      It breaks down like this... if you buy a GLI, not only will it have a lot more punch for your dollar, but it will retain its resale value because it already has many of the features missing from the standard versions. If you buy an SEL, you run a much higher risk of having a poorer resale value in the event that VW addresses the CR recommendation by adding more options and features.

      Thanks Paul, numbers are exactly what I calculated. Waiting until July, I'll wait.
