    Any hope for eventually de-lobotomizing the driver assistance package?

    So, basically on a US 2015, the only thing your $800 or so Driver's assistance package gets you is part assist, which is actually not bad, but does anyone know if there will ever be ways to enable some of the other stuff (in particular, adaptive cruise and maybe automatic emergency braking) via...

    Question about stalling a Mk7

    So, I'm (probably) going to be buying a 3-pedal Mk7 tomorrow. This will be my first manual car, and I have about a 100 mile drive home from the dealer. It's almost all highway though. I remember reading that the mk6s were a bit annoying in that even with the clutch depressed they would not...
