Picking up the Golf R (cousin to the true Oppo car of the year if you discount the obligatory Miata) at 10:00 AM tomorrow. Aiming to be in Capitol Hill at 4:00 PM, on a route whose primary goal is to not be I-5.

Here’s the route as seen from, oh, 200 km up?

At the end of the day I should know if the whole German car aura is legit or not, right?
