    Those are NA required. The MK6 was an afterthought. Those look decent

    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.

    * 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.
    If they don't become instinctual then you will despise them at night as they aren't illuminated and you can't see them in the dark. I'm shocked that it made its way to production like that. I would stay far away from these launch cars as I feel there will be corrective action taken and you will be left with the runt of the generation that is less desirable.

    We’re they not illuminated? I thought the temperature adjustments were, but it was also well lit when I was in it. I agree, that a 1/2 gen refresh would be optimal.

    The sliders for driver/passenger temp and radio volume under the infotainment display are not illuminated. Here's a picture of what you see at night.

    People involved with the infotainment system are getting fired or demoted as it's been a disaster and I imagine fixes will be coming.

    VAG is basically just like the Big3 at this point. All bureaucracy and badge engineering.

    Do we think that Spektrum will be a 2023 thing or will it be later model years?

    Your guess is as good as mine. Selfishly, they do it on the 1/2 gen refresh, but maybe to prop sales right before.

    that's nuts! were they willing to work with you to get a lower price, given the long wait time?

    No, in fact it sounded like MSRP or higher.

    How much did they want for a deposit? I ask, as if you're shopping around, 2 or 3 deposits wouldn't be the worst if they're like $500

    I didn’t ask, I once put down a deposit on a new car being told 3 months to build and deliver and at 4 months they couldn’t give me any idea of an eta, vin of build date so I try to avoid those situations.

    yeah, i called southcentre vw and they said that if i ordered now, i'd get it around july. i've never bought a vehicle with such long leads for delivery. i guess covid is really screwing things up lol.

    being unfamiliar with vw, how often do they do refreshes? the only thing i would really like changed is the hvac/audio controls. maybe it's worth waiting a bit longer until they fix it.

    That’s what they told me as well, but every other dealer told me 12 months.

    My 2007 gti I ordered in June and got in October. My 2016 golf r took 2-3 months I believe. My alltrack I picked up the next day. Just the way it works sometimes.

    Like 2-3 years I think. MK7 was 2016-2017 and MK7.5 was 2018-2019 as the most recent example.
