      For some reason, I really like it! I'd be interested if they got the 0-60 in the mid to low 6 second range. Just saying. But non of that matteres since it's not comming here. VW I'm tired of your sh*t! Bring us the models that the rest of the world gets! You can't be #1 in the world without the US market. Apperantly you are unaware of that.

      Im not a fan on MkV and MKVI, they shouldve brought the Scirocco to America(personally). But if they add the roll bar(like the older ones), pure sex if it was stock with bags.

      If VW brought that over I'd race to the dealership, throw a tent sleep overnite, and buy the sales guy breakfast to be the first guy on the list.

      Its sort of great that VW is coming out with all these cars, but the marketing sucks. It is obvious that cars like this, the Lupo, the Polo, the Phaeton, etc are really unmarketable here in the US. The prices that cars would need to be sold at and the perception that VW is not a premium car, is what keeps it down here. Nice VW, but stop teasing us and take a chance on us for a change. Do what the Japanese did with the Lexus and Infiniti, sell at a loss, and get a market going, and stop selling high priced junk.

      Wait... Let's all ponder the fact that this is a 'soft top' convertible! Why didn't they make it a hard top? Space... cm'on. Seems like the Golf Cabriolet is a bit redundant. Keep the EOS and produce a vehicle to compete with the Z4. Why no adapt the TT platform? It makes no sense.

      The old Cabbies worked, this one literally looks like they sliced a straight line and went "yeah ok, lets build it".

      I think its terrible and I dont usually say that about any VW, I quite honestly like their styling through all gen's, even back to the hitler mobile days.. this is one of the only ones that Ill puke in my mouth a little when I see it.

      Why cannibalize Eos sales? Is there room for two?

      No, this should cost less than an eos. Thus it would sell better and in a short time frame probably kill the eos. It's really the same reason we don't get the scirocco. It's just too close to the Golf and they don't wanna take sales away from thier "go to" model. End result, we didn't get the Scirocco and we won't get the GTI Cabrio. It's all just a damn shame that VWoA thought it was a great idea to show us more new stuff that we can't have! I'd rather just not know. Ignorance is bliss kinda thing, ya know.

      Damn dude, 12 years and only 92 posts! Wow.

      Of course they come out with it now. Everyone knows that the Mk7 is on it's way and they need to try to keep people buying the MkVI until then. So they drop this on the rest of the world to try to avoid people just staying in thier old cars until the Mk7 comes out.

      0-60 in 7.3 for a turbocharged engine is disgraceful. VW should be ashamed; all of their competitors have tuned the same size engine with much better efficiency.

      I wonder why they shot it with Detroits and not the new Serrano wheels.

      Dollars to doughnuts, it'll never fly here...

      Unless they deep six the Eos. Hmm. Now there is a thought!

      After all, they killed the manual in the US two years ago

      Anything under 12 is plenty fast.

      Yeah, and they SUCK....

      I would much rather have smooth useable power, than some big number to brag about to the kids in the parking lot...

      What kind of turbo do you have in that SE????
