Talking From ON to BC: A Wolfsburg Story

Finally got my hands (kinda site unseen, and yet to be physically in my hands) on a beautiful 2014 Golf TDI 6MT Wolfsburg edition.

I started my automotive life in an ALH Mk4 jetta TDI which I loved dearly. It was sad to see it go 3 years ago when I moved from Toronto to BC.

The time has come to get a car again. The 2014 Mk6 was the route I went down.

Searched long and hard, found this one an hour east of Toronto for a decent price with low km's (45kkm).

Flying out to pick it up and drive it home to Vancouver in a couple weeks.
Any recommendations on routes? Was thinking of avoiding the states due to diesel quality and potential border holdups.

I didn’t know they even made a Wolfsburg Edition for the JSW. Love those wheels!

Hey Dwagen,

Yea, apparently they brought in some German made models in 2014 and called them Wolfsburgs. Its very similar to the Highline, except I believe it does not have the air conditioned glove box (maybe a few other things?). And, they had a cool 2-piece rim option along with more color options.

No idea what these rims are. Have a feeling it had the optional rims before and the owner put these on and kept the originals.

Nice find. surprised you weren't able to track one down closer to home. When I bought my CPO '14 last fall there were 3 or 4 just in BC alone.

What did you pay? Curious to see what the comparison is to what I paid...


2014 CPO Golf Wagon, TDI, Highline, manual, w/60k km - $22,000. Came with a full set of winters, monster mats and cargo liner plus they paid for my flight to the lower mainland.

Nice find. I just picked up a 2014 Wolfsburg GSW as well. Mine had 34k, manual as well, but grey. Same wheels as yours has. I've got the AC glovebox in mine too, mine came with two sets of wheels and tires, two sets of mats, etc.

One thing though, they're all Mexi built cars. If you look at your VIN, its likely starts with 3 instead of W. I've already racked up 10k on it and it's been marvelous!

Picked up the car today. What a beauty.

Had a serious hang over, wrong size winter tires pre purchased from kijiji, and only 2 hours to find ones that could fit on a tight budget.

Made it all work out! Tomorrow I leave for Terrace Bay. Not sure where ill be staying plan is to be at a cool Farm BNB on Monday night in Winnipeg then a friend's place in Calgary for Tuesday night.

Let's see how this goes!

I was wondering this as well. Didn't think any Golf Wagons came from Wolfsburg into Canada as new.

Hey, I paid around 20k. Still need mats, winters, etc. Sounds comparable. Very nice they paid your flight!

Arrived in Wawa last night. Wish I could easily post pics for everyone. I'll save them for the end and post, too busy.

Almost hit a moose last night. Bloody things are terrifying.

Off to Winnipeg! In a snow storm!

What a ride over the last couple days. Just got to Calgary

So far almost hit a wolf, deer, moose, trucks, etc.

Counted 5 cars/ trailers in ditches and one car flipped over. Serious white outs along the way. Scared the heck out of my friend when I yelped as the eyes of a wolf stood staring at me in the dark as I drove passed it going 100kmh

Drive safe that Polar blast across the prairies is terrifying. Cold AF here, we need more snow to ski though!
