LOL I was reading this thread and everytime I clicked the link it would take me to the old GTI page. I couldn't believe no one caught it but then I read the page was taken down. haha

Yes, the US gets screwed as usual. We'll get the 'base' sports seats in cloth as standard. If you want the "top sports seats", then you'll have to spring for leather/Autobahn package. Personally, I think that sucks and would gladly pay for top sports seats in cloth. Ain't gonna happen though. Oh, and "Jacky" versus the current Interlagos plaid pattern. woohoo, be still my beating spleen......................

I hope that they do throw up the new MK 6 website again Saturday. The prices that were posted earlier made me very happy. They decontented but only jacked the base price up by $90. HID's are only $600 and the Dynaudio upgrade $400. Given the extreme pain VW gets put through via recession and the dollar's freefall versus the Euro lately, I think we get a pretty good deal all things considered. Plus VW is going to take it up the kiester over the negative DSG public perception in the US not to mention a lot of very expensive repairs/replacements in the recently announced safety recall.

Bad temperature sensors in the DSG show that the gearbox is overheating when it's not, causing the transmission to shut down, so you're pretty much in neutral when you don't want to be in neutral. It only affects models from 2008 and 2009, I think.

As of now, it is only a USA recall...so it seems like the USA cars got a bad batch of sensors.

edit: Sept 14th.
Transport Canada just issued their recall for DSG equipped cars in Canada to replace the temperature sensor.
