Strong VW is actually willing to deal if you're out of their area. I would have had to finance it, though (through VW, at some ridiculous rate, and I had to keep the loan for 6 months). Total interest wasn't that much if I paid it off in 6 mos, but just on principle it annoyed me. Cash=no discount... I originally thought the R wagon was my dream car. I have R seats in my Alltrack, and was going to put a bigger hair dryer in there (IS20) and up the power. What I learned from the GTI, though, was that 1) I actually liked driving the slightly smaller car better, and 2) for my own needs, the space of the GTI/R works fine. Part of this is that I started carrying bikes outside vs inside, even on the Alltrack.

If they ever offer a Sportwagen R i will be in some serious debt as i would be powerless to resist buying.
