I see a volume and tuning knob!
Wow, I like that set up much better.
This car has a splitter on the front end too, which really helps tighten up the look of the front end.

I'm surprised. I figured the terrible ergonomics would have knocked it out of running.
Yeah, I did notice they "only" gave a score of 9.5 this year, while the Mk7 always got a perfect 10. But apparently it wasn't enough to take it off the list.

Hideous wheels and the terrible front should have earned more deductions.

It would be pretty funny if VW USA gave us volume knobs. I’d have to eat a lot of crow, and buy a Mk8 R.

All the reviews are reviewing the higher trim levels with the 10-inch MIB3 Discover Pro system
I believe the 22 GTI S gets the 8.25-inch MIB3 Composition Media infotainment with knobs

I'm slowly warming up to the Mk8, which is good since who knows when we'll see one at sticker or lower.

Will probably keep my wagon for a couple more years. I'll try and stick to mods that are Mk8 compatible from here.

I've grown to actually like it above the intake.
I like the headlights, hood, the body...
I'm even finding the intake of the GTI to be less jarring. It looked like a shapeless, gaping maw to me.
I don't quite see it that way now, and I like the fog lights.
I really want to see what it looks like in the flesh.

If it gets real steering wheel buttons too, I'm in.

Yeah. Knobs are a step in the right direction. The S trim is where I’d be looking. Front diff, LED lights, cloth, and no sunroof.

I’d like to see a R with at least no sun roof though.

with 8700mi on my 19, I’m not going to be in the market any time soon.
