Was shopping on a budget, and the TDI's are quite a bit more. I have read how in the long run the return would payoff, with the greater efficiency, the power, but I don't plan to tow with this one. It's intending to be road tripping machine with a serious backseat for the dog. And if some friends want to ride back there, they won't be cramped.Very nice car! However, I'm curious about what made you choose the VR6 over the TDI (I'm the guy who would never ever consider a petrol/gasoline SUV).
- The 1 option TireRack.com has for winter tires in the 275/45/20 size, $1,061 (Dunlops) - yuck.
The MINI Cooper's are fun cars, the suspension is harsh, the steering is go kart like, the turbo had lag for days, and the upkeep is extremely costly for what your getting (ref. 2007-2013 years). I just realized I was a VW guy.
Where does one start looking for anti-roll bars with green dots? :grin2:
