    What are the packages/options available?

    And is that for the 5 door or 3 door model?

    Hey that's weird! The article says it's only available in 3 door version. Is this true?

    Is that Canadian pricing, because that is a pretty good price.

    Typically, US only gets 3 doors, while we get 5 doors.

    Mk4 was only 2 door never sold in Canada. Mk5 was only 2 door never sold in canada. Mk6 was only 4 door and 6spd.

    The price seems comparable to last gen.

    I think he knows what the deal is since he sells VWs. Price is exactly where I figured it would be given S3 price.

    That's CND MSRP, Im reading through the product guide and it appears to be a 5 door, not a 3.

    DSG at $1400
    Special Oryx white paint
    Tech pack with driver assistance, adaptive cruise, lane assist, blind spot, city emergency brake and park distance control will be $2015.

    Those are the only extra add ons.

    Sellout articles are such BS, manufacturer sends the article to the media to post, creates a hype and urgency. If I need more allocation I can get it, if they don't build your car in June they'll build it in July.

    BMW did this all the time with their M cars.

    Wow I like the pricing. Too bad I won't be in the marker for another car for years now.

    That's pretty good with DCC too this time, just under 50 fully loaded OTD. Summer delivery? With my luck, the R may be here sooner than my S3.

    Are these being built in Germany or Mexico? A June SOP will arrive at dealerships in the August/Sept timeframe.

    $40k puts it pretty close to STI pricing.

    Germany for the Golf R. Mexico isn't ready for AWD yet as far as I've read.

    STI with leather and nav is 45k base. Base STI is a decent deal at 38k but for 2k more Golf R looks to be a much better deal.

    Is there a limited number of units for Canada this time around?

    That price is better than I anticipated. Was thinking GTI with PP but this is tempting. Damn house renovations eating into my car budget means lots of arguments with the wife trying to justify another car.
