You also forget the 6/72,000 bumper to bumper and powertrain that would normally cost $2,500 third party to get an “extended” warranty on a 3/36,000
Or you could just get a reliable car where the warranty doesn't matter :zing:

Give the people what they want. Which is clearly a Fit that’s mildly lifted with black plastic cladding, off roadish tires, AWD, and maybe a mild increase in power. It’ll be LIT, fam. You should checkout the new Corolla hatchback. That would be a sensible thing to do though. That’s not very metal.

I interpreted KYJelly’s post as alluding to the base model being thevravbjt Edition. Crisis averted
Regardless. That shit is expensive.

Rudy is saying that VW dropped the "base" model GTI (using 2017/2018 nomenclature) and instead is offering the 2017 Sport trim as the lowest level in the lineup.

yet 87 has more energy than 91 or 93 :bs: Dunno about that. Just higher resistance to detonation, thus moar timing and moar ponies. That. More stable, resists detonation from compression much better, allowing more precise and aggressive spark timing and higher compression ratio in the engine design.

It's not even flyover :doe: , whole East Coast is the same. It's really only CA and a few other Western states that have "cheap" premium.
Up here it's +$0.50 for 93 over 87.

Sad that price of entry has gone up. But that sport diff should be standard anyway, so I'll allow it.

Other fun shit on the 2019 GTI:
-228 HP standard
-GoRf brakes standard
-7-DCT trans optional

Nice updates. With the 7-DCT and extra power it's probably faster than my car.
