Americans won't pay the price premium for a luxury nameplate on a hatch... Given how good the GTI has become, there's even less of a reason to do so.

Had a manual, petrol 1 series for a week and found it to be a pleasure. Stable at high speeds, pokey and comfortable enough. It’s unfortunate that premium hatches don’t make it to the US.

ask one of our resident md's if they'll prescribe us all some. I wonder what my insurance charges for copay on a prescription...
