    not a big fan of the front end of the mk8, both the mk6 and mk7 are good.

    just saw the ad that Northland VW has a bunch (over a dozen) new 2019 Rs on-sale for >$6k off msrp. Seems pretty decent. Why are they sitting on so many Rs!

    Probably because they had them all priced at like 48-55K range the last while or so which is some pretty heavy markup. Combine that with what I would assume is insanely low sales in general the last 3 months and well now you get the discount/0% to dump off the 2019s that have probably been sitting on the lot for 6-12 months easy

    They bought up as many R's as possible before the end of the run thinking they would be sitting on a gold mine and wouldn't budge on pricing so rather than sell cars they sat on the inventory and are not having to discount them. I don't understand dealer methodology at all as it seems like they are the only type of distributor in this day and age that doesn't understand how to properly balance sales and overhead costs.

    New golf is coming in summer of 2021 and GTI/R shortly after. Current Golf and GTI will be made until that point for Canada.

    Golf R and Alltrack/Sport wagon will not have a 2020 model year. This is why VW Canada ordered a ton of 2019s and that's why you see 2000 Golf Rs in inventory. They intend to keep selling them for next 2 years as 2019s (or until they run out).
    With the virus hitting this plan obviously has to change a bit. So VW Canada is helping dealers by putting an incentive on them.

    I am the same but also the interior with all of the touch screen buttons instead of physical buttons
    At least it keeps me happy with my mk7

    VW is again having Mk8, software problems affecting its launch, and production.

    So my 17 (7) R lease was almost up, and with the Mk8, a least 12, but likely (18-24?) months away, I grabbed a black 19 from 5th. They treated me well. I'll grab an 8, in 24.

    Anyone ever compared a 7 to 7.5? Clutch feels heavier. Did they upgrade it?

    I did. Worked with Craig over at 5th. I’ve know him and Derek for quite some time. Start with Alex though.

    Not sure if this applies to Canada, but tuners have been pulling out of the market because of EPA rulings. APR for example, doesn't sell Stage 2 tunes anymore for the MK7/Audi S3
    @schocker is right about VEX being a Cobb dealer though. GTR Auto also sells AccessPort.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    USP or APR. They look way nicer

    Whats up with that price? Are these going for a premium already? I saw it posted in a group and it has 16k claim on it.
    (I paid less than that new)

    At first I thought that was new, then I saw it had 25K on it and a huge accident claim. Wow. With the full GTI overhaul right around the corner too, who would buy that? No DSG either. Also that might be the worst sales page I have ever seen haha.
