Really?

6-speed LA owner checking in. Not an issue at all.

I'm so happy with my 2012 that if I could score the right deal i'd trade it in for a 2013 to start the odometer at 0 again because it's going to be my last vw for a while. Basically the whole made in Mexico ruins it and the only ones that really understand are those that have owned Mexican made vw's.

I'll be purchasing my leased MK6 when it comes off
lease late December.
My intention is to drive it for about a year, and get back into a MK7 through a lease roughly this time next year,
Of course, once the MK6 is mine, who knows?
I may decide to keep it.
I will want to tune it.

Of course leasing a MK7 will get me back under a full warranty again, plus the monthly payments will be less...

I am amazed at the amount of discussion. The solution seems incredibly simple to me. You bought the Mk6 because you needed a car. Now simply wait for the Mk7 to show up on dealer lots and go decide if you like it better. If you do, trade your Mk6 for a Mk7 and problem solved. The new cars are not here yet, nobody really knows how the differences are going to manifest themselves.

They are cars... rapidly depreciating disposable assets. I have owned over 50, I do not become attatched to them or worry about having the newest or best, really good works fine for me. My '13 GTI certainly seems to be a really good car, what would there be to regret?

That's funny.. I said the same thing about the MK6 when it was launched. Same can be said for MK4 vs B6 etc etc

I'm thinking the same thing. By then it'll be 2016 and hopefully Mexico will have figured out what the hell they're doing by then.

Also, thanks all. So stoaked I found this forum.

Yeah, I'm in a bit of an odd situation of timing.
With my lease ending Dec. 23rd, I could lease another MK6 - but I don't want to lock into another 3 years in one with the MK7 less than a year away from my lease termination.
If the MK7s were to have been here by Dec. '13, I would have just rolled into one.

Now, when I purchase my MK6 - I could just keep it since I'll own it and my mileage is ridiculously low.
Plus, I can tune it which is something I wouldn't do to a leased vehicle.
But leasing a MK7 will cost me less per month than buying my MK6.
Plus, I love driving a car with a full warranty for three years.

Just bought a 2011 MK6 Autobahn and tbh, I love it. Coming from a C350 I wanted a "hot hatch" that was fun, easy to maintain (big diy'er here), and can tow my road bikes to races.

Love it and have no regrets, especially after seeing the price estimates for an MK7 without the "AutoBahn" package. Not gonna lie, Im pretty jealous about the LSD but Im sure aftermarket tuners will have one out for us soon(if not already done)

a few of the new parts sound nice. but I'm quite happy with the Mk6. still looks better to me for now (but then again, I haven't seen the 7 in the flesh yet...). and then there's the money side of things.

Staying with the 6 for the foreseeable future.

Tune now if you're planning to buy it!

Look at all the issues the 2010 GTIs have compared to the 2013s…. I would never get the first gen of a new car. Too many issues that may come up that will eventually get fixed a couple years later. Plus at that point there should be a lot more modding options.
