When I see a Golf R in public, I always say to my wife, “THAT'S the car I really want.” To which she replies, “But THIS is the car you really need. Besides, you’d just be trading it in for another diesel wagon in a year.”

She does know me well. Golf R is one sweet machine, but with two kids and lots of road trips, the GSW is the right one.

Building a TDI Alltrack isn't too far-fetched of an idea - I thought about how it would be neat too, and they do make them this way in Europe.

The best option might be to find a way to bring one in from Europe once they are 25 years old.

If you can't wait that long look for a way to bring in parts from Europe and get a swap candidate. Starting out with an Alltrack might be easier and get the engine, transmission and tanks from a Euro spec TDI AWD.

Why OH why does the NA mkt which is bigger than Europe get the short end of the stick. Maybe if VW gave us their best they would be making more progress in their MKT share here . All the other major auto producers have rolled over VW here. I also just heard the Beatle is going to be discontinued here, makes sense? I see them all over the place

North America was almost certainly getting a TDI alltrack until DieselGate killed all new TDI's
