It's a great series that's very exciting, but I do agree with Dents that they over dramatize some things. Just watch it to get interested in the sport and take any interpersonal conflicts they present with a grain of salt.

Drive to Survive makes them look like soccer players rolling and crying on the grass after tripping on a ghost.

Yeah, that's nuts. And it's the worst color offered. Eeewwwww.

Lots of people don't like those wheels either, but I kind of like them.

The wheels are definitely growing on me after seeing them in person. That being said, I saw pretorias right after and still think those are the best looking.

I like the car, but the price is shocking, and that is in US dollars too. Dude - my baby momma purchased a GLC43 - it was $90K CAD. This was in Sept - car has not arrived yet. Yesterday, sleazy shitbag salesman calls and is like, yeah, we have people offering $115K for that car, so that's what the new price is, let us know and "we'll keep it for you". I lost my shit. I drove 45 mins form Toronto last night to the dealership, met with the GM - threatened them that I am a journalist and that I am going to blast the dealership about their unethical practices all over twitter; long story short, price remained at $90K and I got free winter wheels and rubber; the car, however is delayed again and is most likely coming in Feb - original date of arrival was supposed to be mid Oct.

EDIT - I am not a journalist and I don't use twitter.

I know they're very different cars, but at those prices, if I wanted a DSG, I would just get an Arteon. Bigger, nicer inside, IS38, 4 motion, and way better looking. Plus they still go at or below MSRP.

Just makes me so glad I got my car when I did. I considered a mk8 back in 2019 when I thought they'd be 2021's, just to keep a pattern going. I had a 2001 mk4 GTI, then a 2011 mk6 GTI, so I thought having a 2021 mk8 GTI would be pretty cool. I'd much rather have my R lol

When I was looking at Rs at the end of 2019 Lakeland VW had some of the best pricing in the state. All of their Rs were like $38.9k-40.5k. Now their GTIs are at R prices.

They were the cheapest when I was looking for the 19, but I ended up buying at St. Augustine, because that's where I would be getting service and any warranty work. Builds good will and sometimes that's the difference between them going to bat for you on a claim or not.

51 grand and it needs new wheels immediately.

Embarrassing.
