      Canadian article..interesting to note the exhaust system being mentioned as available in Canada..as well as $2,995 for the new colours! Yikes. Almost Audi exclusive pricing.

      Would be nice to know what price for exhaust is and whether it'll fit mk7 and whether it'll be available for purchase from store.

      Yes I guess we still have to move to Mallorca to get that damn sunroof lol.

      I am interested in whether that exhaust system actually makes it to Canada, because it sure seems it will based on this article. Up to this point everything seem to read that it was Europe only.

      I do like the added color choices but I cannot justify $2995 to choose one, if that turns out. If it does though one would be able to have a fairly exclusive R, as I just cannot see them selling many in the exclusive colours. Maybe I will be wrong and we will start to see a bunch of orange and green R's.

      Pretty sure that if the exhaust is coming to Canada, then there'll be a lot of people interested in importing it to the US, myself included.

      Yes I cannot see why it would not also fit 2015-2017s. If it was reasonably priced I would definitely consider it. Nice add on to get me over the lack of sunroof lol.

      What would be reasonable for Akra to you?

      Aren't decent paint jobs and wrap jobs around that price anyways?

      If Viper green is same as Audi viper green, I might jump at it, even for 3k.

      But if it's vw viper green from a few years ago, no.

      This color absolutely speaks to me. I love LSG, but I definitely could have been convinced to pay for this color.

      Yea. A good vinyl wrap is $3k...

      The 7 speed DSG is pretty much a major change that should take a bit off the Turbo/DSG lag and should yield 1% or so better fuel mileage- a great car getting greater.

      $3000 canadian is a small price to pay for a totally unique car. Those are some really great colors on offer.

      A Golf R with a custom color still undercuts the Focus RS by a few grand in Canada. You guys are lucky.

      I do think it is an option to consider for new buyers..I was just surprised that it was $3k considering this is a VW not an Audi. Different price point and I would have guessed under $2k for the up charge. Will be cool to see a few different colours floating around. I am quite interested though for the exhaust as I am fine with my LSG for awhile.

      I would pay the $3k just for this color and the exclusiveness. It's a beautiful color and I've alway been a fan of the British racing green shades.

      3k for Nano Gray- Id do that
