Hideously expensive compared to what?!
What competition is the WK2 more expensive than? In fact, I find the WK2 one of the better automotive values available on the road today, especially when you factor in what you can actually pay for one vs MSRP. I paid ~$42k for my loaded $49k sticker Overland, where else can you find a vehicle this solid, capable, and well optioned and appointed for $42k?!? Believe me, after my experience with my 2011 I tried, I drove *everything* remotely comparable and I came to the conclusion that one had to spend at least $10-15k more than the Overland to get a vehicle as capable and nice.
What "really nice european sport coupes" can be had nowadays for the price of a WK2 without being smaller engined or reduced in options?
