    Agreed. Someone has to design nice cars. Toyotas and Hondas are ugly as shit, and they don't match VW/Audi performance. Yeah, they cost more! Those of us who buy them know that, and we're fine with it.

    They're not passing out sexy awd v8s which every other car company copies for design but other than that, I agree, I guess?

    I have yet to own a VW but I did grow up in a family with VWs.. my parents had them when I was a lil kid, also my uncle was a VW engineer and I remember him having a couple of Super Beetles.

    Hmm I sorta want one now.. maybe a simple classic Bug from the 70s or 80s.

    Kia is doing a fair job of copying the A4 & Chrysler jumped all over those headlights

    You need zero skills to keep those air cool motors running. Cool cars.

    so it is. news to me. That bites.. I sorta liked it having my Dodge coming from the same stable as Ferrari

    hah! googled it and Ferrari is now technically a Dutch company altho their factory is still in Maranello.

    If you really want have a good time, get the new Turbo Beetle R-Line. Not cheap, but faster than shit and tons of fun. I know, I keep getting speed camera tickets.

    Not the same soul.

    VW is dropping that turbo in more cars these days. The S4s went from a v8 to a supercharged v6.

    They are with the 1.8, but not the 2.0 TSI, which is what goes in the R-Line models. And I'd much rather have the new car than the old. That's just me. What I'd really like is the Scirocco R. But of course, you can't get one here, only in Europe. I keep begging my dealer nonetheless.
