That would be awesome. Unfortunetly, I have an automatic wagon. Not as rare but still rare enough for me. And yea, flooring it is one of the best feelings

The dealer was able to get the light off by flushing the ATF. So I am going to go with that for a while and see if it comes back up. If it does it will be covered by my warranty.

So happy, it only cost me $293 to get the car to pass inspection so my purchase price for the car is now down to $6,693!!!!

Check and and purchased it before I purchased the car. I can't believe how smooth it is at high speeds. I am used to having "more used" cars so they would always give me some shake or shimmy before I got to 80. Radar detector with active live alerts connected to my phone is going to be my life saver

I just love this car so much. It is just such a nice place to be.

Hey Ken, just out of curiosity, where did you get the figure of only 36 W8/6MT wagons? I have a build spreadsheet from VW that shows 105 were made and delivered in North America. This was obviously a long time ago, and counts Canada. So, your data may be from a lot more current source.

Does the count represent all the cars currently in existence?

I think I like having 1/36th of all the cars in the US.

It was logan that said that there are only 36 W8/6MT Wagons. That is awesome that it is so rare. I however, have an AT.
