    Boy, I'm glad i didn't say i'd eat my shirt. Yeah, well... you need to place your bet before the game is played ;) Still, I'll bring donuts to my first local TDI fest. Cider donuts are the rage this time of year in Massachusetts/New England. Nice pics. The Blue is a great color. Also...

    Congrats! First question: Do you feel my envy ? (just kidding) There's not a single review on the internet for the TDI MT. Not sure about others, but i'd like to see: Pictures. Ride/drive opinions. Mileage you're getting ? Does the rear-view mirror still have the rain sensor? Is the...

    definitely, count me in if I have it by then, otherwise I'd feel inadequate showing up in a prius. None of this TDI stuff interests folks I know. If I mention VCDS or TDI one more time at home, my wife's gonna leave me. I'm really looking forward to this car.

    I obviously can't know for sure, but I imagine VW production lines run in batches, a batch of TDI SEL, a batch of gassers, ... a batch of TDI SE 6 speed. I believe there will be a substantial (100's) of SE shipping in November. Probably a lot less than 1 per dealership. This may be plenty of...

    Availability is worse if you count Mexico/S. America... It's non zero, but I didn't have any info on either market. I'm just making a back of the napkin "guestimation" regarding TDI SE (6 speed) availability over the next 12 months.

    It's not a stretch to say pickings for TDI SE will likely be slim. :( 596 Volkswagen dealerships in USA. + 133 independent Canadian Dealers --------- 729 Dealerships in North America. Sept 10th. VW biulds it's 10,000 passat, but not necessarily delivered crunching the numbers: 10,000/729= 13...

    Oct 1. Dealer said VW updated my 6-speed Manual status as "production stock". Which apparently means the vehicle is on the assembly line being built! "Woo-hoo". They said it can remain in this state 1 week best case, 3 weeks worse. I suspect the VW plant is building a batch of SE 6 speed...

    Back on topic; I ordered a 6-speed TDI (SE) black on beige. I'd bet dollars to donuts that no on one will get an SE 6-speed on Wednesday Oct 5. I predict that any dealer promising this will have a lame excuse come delivery day. I'll bet they blame the other dealer. Aug 1: My dealer gave...
