The :baby: :baby: :baby: chronicles

Why would anyone get autobahn over se ? Weren’t those 37-8k? While I'd prefer the cloth my kids would destroy them, plus :tits: would be driving the car a fair bit so the memory seat option with the leather seats make sense too. A SE with leather is about $2k less than an Autobahn. Autobahn still g...

I'm sure many go for MSRP, but the dealers that actually have one or more available, at least in my small sample size, have all been asking for a markup of $3k-$5k. The others I've asked about have been presold.

:wub: This just got listed on C&B. The last Mk8 sold for $43k with the same miles and was also a 20th anniversary edition. That's :notbad: at all. Probably worth keeping an eye on. https://carsandbids.com/auctions/KmN8mRee/2023-volkswagen-golf-r-20th-anniversary-edition?utm_source=pd&utm_me...

Car needed

I am under an immense amount of stress right now. These are the easy button. That’s all. Normally I’d be totally fine with wasting days playing foursquare and rejecting scotchguard but I have no time or mental capacity for the games. It’s worth inquiring to the local dealer. I’ll see what they can ...

That does look better. I think it's a good looking car. I actually think the Golf styling is amazing. They are such a simple, basic hatch, and yet they've always looked great and they've always looked new when launched but still like an evolution of the car. I feel like it's probably easy to make a...

I think the MK8 has fugly wheels here which make it look worse, but it's very similar. I actually like the MK6 looks more than both but you're really splitting hairs, they're very similar. The wheels on the Autobahn do help IMO. https://vehicle-images.dealerinspire.com/dcb8-110009957/WVWVA7CD4RW205...

Cross-reference from the general OT thread, I just put my name in for a 2025 Civic Sport Touring Hybrid hatchback in boost blue. 3x per week in the office is going to mean a lot more driving.

Old car shit. The original duct was hard as a rock and had developed a 3" long tear in the bellows. No bueno. Tearing it completely in two made it easier to get out. :lol:

Reasonable suggestion, I just want a hatch for the doggo. The hatch in the Golf is barely suitable for that, but at least it's a hatch.
