My MK6 is long ago paid for so now it's like driving a free car. I plan on doing that for a long time. It's one of my favorite cars that I've owned. When it's used up I'll cherry pick a nice MK7. Don't think I could ever get over the glass dash & all the nannies on a MK8.
for some reason (bmw lights aside) front end reminds me of the Beetle.. the shape is both rounder and crisper.. pass.
I'd take the MK7.5 at this point if i ever gave up my MK6 (doubtful). Like some already said.. paid for. works for me.
I don't like a digital display. They tried that in the 80's & 90's (Not VW i don't think) Buick i think had the most extensive.
