I stopped by the VW and Audi dealerships in Helsinki with high hopes of seeing a MK8 GTI and R along with some RS models.
They did have a few cool Audi’s but no GTI or R. One thing that was interesting and surprising was how high the CO2 tax is. I knew there was some sort of tax that countries in the EU participated in but I had no clue the impact.

Closest I go to an R was a Tiguan R. Not an r-line but an actual R.

I sat in a MK8 GTE which was cool and I like the interior. I like the new seats a lot. There is also a cool embossed Volkswagen on the APillar

So, not even 12 hours back in the states and about 10 minutes into a cruise this morning in the GTI and I got a ticket. It was literally the first WOT. Unmarked car sitting who knows where at 6:30 on a Saturday morning. Been about 15 years since I’ve received one.
I hate the unmarked cop cars. The only ticket I've had for 10 years was an unmarked SUV going the opposite direction.
