    I have not. My second car was an '82 Rabbit and I loved that car. MINI has taken over the top spot from it and my BMW 330ci, tho.

    My biggest thing with the VW is how much they want for the things... They quit being the "car of the people" sometime in the early '90s... :rolleyes:

    I just saw this quote on an article about Best Buy by Larry Downes and thought it was fitting:

    As the head of a major automobile company told me at the dawn of Internet commerce, “Sooner or later, the last stupid customer will walk in the door.”

    Seems like "sooner or later" is now.

    MM... You have an eye appointment on Monday. Be there. :D

    That one is pretty cool, but instead of sleeking that up and making a newer version, they went the other way and made it sillier...

    The Golf R is not a bad ride......but yes it is not as connected as the MINI is to the driver or the road. And at better than 34K for one.....:eek6:

    I like the look of the 500, but the wagon version just looks strange to me. I think it is because the door outline doesn't seem to flow with the rest of the side view.
