While the R is far more practical and easier to get the kids out of the back, I love me 600 HP and RWD.

Even after my drip tray fell off on the way back from Milwaukee last night. I did average 20.2 MPG for a new highway record!
Makes sense. 600 is pretty wild.

On the highway with no traffic doing 75-80 mph I can get up to 20 mpg or more average on the dash.


I daily drive it now so the dash average usually stays between 13-15 mpg during the week.

Would be a cool car when fixed. There was a solid tiguan with 4 notion near me I almost traded the mk7 in on. They are sweet rides.

Old Tiguan. Might as well put a lift kit on the gti. Newer Tiguan seems worth it.

This one will cost you less by the time that other car is running, and be worth more in the long run with the clean title. Plenty of low mileage 4motion cars out there for under 15 grand or less.
