    You mean a car where my wife can’t endlessly mess with the HVAC controls when they are set to AUTOMATIC?

    Where do I sign up.
    That doesn't sound like a car problem.

    It's a wife problem. Mine does the same thing. I find Auto on most modern cars is fantastic but my wife constantly turns the fan speed up and down like she's cycling through menopause hot and cold flashes. Silly and annoying.

    Honestly I think it is a woman thing. They can't trust auto climate control.

    Sounds like you’ve just chosen the wrong women. Mine handles it just fine.

    Oh, it's everything you imagine.
    Radio breaks and you literally need to be towed home because the windows fog up completely and there is nothing you can do to stop it.
    I heard some of the newest Teslas don't even let you open the glove box without using the touchscreen. There's no handle/latch. ??

    My wife’s truck has the same feature (but a haptic button instead of touchscreen). It’s infuriating.

    This is true. They have removed radar sensor, homelink garage door hardware, etc. Every year Elon strips his vehicles down more and more while raising the prices.

    I'm really liking the Mk 8 Golf R. I've never owned a VW (only owned Nissans, Hondas, Acuras and Toyotas) before, but I'm really considering this to be my next vehicle. What are the major problems that you guys have encountered on these cars? How much movement in price can I expect for a Golf R? Does VW even entertain any offer other than MSRP since these things will likely be in high demand? I thought I remember a member on here working for a VW dealership. Does anybody remember who that is? Thanks!

    Let me know what you discover. I am also interested.
    Conversations like this can be intense.

    I had a 2017 R for 3 years and it was rock solid reliable, not a single issue other than an aftermarket swaybar endlink. My car was also tuned and driven fairly hard. I don't think you're going to get much, if anything, off of MSRP right now. Redlyne MR2 (or something like that) was the Beyond VW hookup at Gary Moe VW in Red Deer, but I don't think he works there any longer.

    Drove my 2016 R for 3.5 years with no issues. Only had a bolt in the door coming loose and making rattle sound but that was an easy warranty fix. The new one looks so sweet but find it hard to justify ~$52K for one when I paid ~$42K for my MK7 new.

    Great lease terms on it though. I think 68% residual on a 36month lease.

    Thermostat housings leaks are a regular occurance with EA888 engines. Mine did at about 14K and it was happening to lots of us on the MK7 FB page. There were so many failures I had to wait over a month to get mine replaced as they were on national back order. It's just something VAG has been unable to solve. Other than that it was fairly solid. I was quite surprised how poor the paint was. Almost as bad as a Subaru or Honda.

    2022s arriving now, happened to drive by a dealer today and spotted a few. Was told I can’t sit in them though and if I want to test drive one I’ll be waiting until early summer lol.

    I saw on the Alberta MK7 FB group that some people have had a chance to take a good look at them. A few comments of the leather feeling really cheap and not resembling real leather. VW admitted they were going to pursue $2 billion in cost cutting because of the scandal but it's kind of showing in this car.

    So I had the fortunate opportunity to check out a new R early in the week.
    Here's my thoughts;

    * The seats felt great. Unibody, akin to the old Mk4 R's Konig's. Comfort, felt similar to my 7.5's
    * Front corner, signal indicator is stupid looking. On the 7/7.5's, the corner amber indicator is integrated with the front headlamps. On the 8's it's lone, and over the front fenders, and look like such a stupid afterthought. Most press photos don't have it. Maybe it's a North American requirement?
    * The spoiler is much more aggressive
    * The manual shifter feels better than on the 7.5
    * Finally, the haptic, touch screen console; heat/cooling & fan speed functions have their own haptic sliders. I can appreciate why Auto reviewers don't love the new way to adjust, but they're given the car for 48 hours. It won't be an immediate ease, but can see it becoming instinctual after a couple weeks of owning the car. After personally getting to play with the controls, I'm no longer dissuaded.

    The picture makes it look decent. Wheels are very nice, personally I love the petoria wheels trying to find a set for my golf alltrack. Like I mentioned in the 2 series forum I think this is a steal even at 50k compared to the bmw at 70k.

    Agreed, except for that stupid amber indicator
