      I know the advantages of the 4 cal but IMO the point to why people love the MK4 is the sound and the stick shift. Frankly if VW would of taken qualities of the MK6 R and used either a 3.2 or the 3.6 motor, Euro Seats etc, it could have been a nice upgrade to the MK5. if staying with the 6 Cyl.

      It could of been cool. My 2 cents.
      Damn right. It could've been cool.

      The delta 6 looks the same as the factory radio, but the screen is larger, the adjustment buttons are recessed (pop out when you press them), no tape deck (WOOHOO), shows radio station and song names on the display and sounds MUCH better!!

      I'll be selling mine shortly if anyone is interested. (not cheap)

      What about the radio that VW made for the mk4.5? It had Bluetooth and a USB built in? There's a for sale thread in the R forums I believe. And I think it looks better then the oe ours came with

      I think I'm going to get one, but if i could get an OEM iPod adapter for it that would be better, IMO. I like how it looks as if it shoulda came that way. I don't need a screen for NAVI, although it would be nice. not too bad for 400 bucks

      The fastest colour is Reflex Silver.

      I considered that one as well. I actually use the disc changer though (I may be the only one). Keep us posted. Supposedly in that thread its been reported that this OEM+ headunit sounds better than the Monsoon..

      I won't be getting this for a few months. Need to finish the Supercharger first.

      I first went from the stock crap unit to a Pioneer Avic-D3 and now I'm running a Kenwood DNX 6980. Both massively improved the sound, the Kenwood even moreso. I would just go aftermarket double-din touchscreen, it looks very clean and OEM+ overall, I think you can pick up the Kenwood for $700 or so on Amazon, but if you find a nice aftermarket unit without navi it will be much less.
