The SEL seats are amazing. And worth it.

As of now (in the USA) the only GSW that needs 16" wheels is the Alltrack

AFAIK rear brakes are same on IRS and torsion bar GSW.

I don't think the 12 lbs of weight difference between the jsw and the gsw had anything to do with the smaller (and cheaper) brake components. I'd chalk that one up to the bean-counters.

12 or 100#? either way agreed, the engineers fought the bean counters and yeah the bean counters probably won.

I like 15" winters as much as the next TDI wagon driver. But I'll take the bigger brakes any day.
