Re: New/cool features of the '14 make everything previous obsolete.

Yeah I was kidding. I didn't want one but couldn't pass up the early arrival. It's the biggest waste of space possible. Did you ever own a CTS-V?

Re: New/cool features of the '14 make everything previous obsolete.

People still listen to CD's? This is 2013 right? ;-) If I order a new one it for sure wont that that option.
Although I agree that flipper glass can come in handy, I will say besides that there is not a single thing I like more about the 11-13 WK2's over the 14's. The interior and more specifically the new evic and 8.4" nav is amazing as is the new color of the interior lights. The steering wheel looks twenty times better too. Love everything about the 14's!!!

I for one love the new instrument cluster and display. With the freedom to configure several displays and the fact I can actually see how fast I'm going.
What do you like about your 2014?
I like not cringing when I look at the front end of my car.... because I don't have a '14

You guys really had issues seeing out the back of the WK2? I never had any issues with it, I always found its rear visibility to be very, very good.

IMO, if you're lucky you won't hear it.

Ever heard one of the German diesel SUVs? They sound horrible. It's just an unpleasant chugging noise. The best thing you could possibly hope for is to not hear them at all.



My favorite part is the end where he goes "At least it started".

Streaming Pandora is a plus. Why is there an app?

Re: New/cool features of the '14 make everything previous obsolete.

Boy, that BMW diesel on a cold start does sound awful. An 18 wheeler with a huge Caterpillar sounds much better.

How does your hemi sound when it is 5 degrees outside?

I wouldn't know since it doesn't get below 40 here. And the garage never gets below 55. But that BMW diesel to me sounded awful.

All of mine loved cold weather, as most NA engines do though. Here's one in colder weather
