I’m waiting at the VW dealer, so I walk around the lot. Aside from the Golf R with aftermarket exhaust in service in front of me, there are really no cars I want to look at. Anyone feel differently?

The Rabbit pickup survivor is by far the most interesting. Manual, of course. I like the aftermarket hood locks, this thing has been places.

The Dune trim on the new Beetle looks nice. Double head old Beetle bonus.


And before I got to post this, went for a ride with the tech working on my GTI, and we seem to have traced my door rattle to the sunroof. Sound can be so deceptive.

Happily the rattle showed up before we finished the drive, or I would have had it appear on my drive home!
