Congratulations! I was in the same boat.....I bought my Mk7 brand new and paid it off. Then was thinking I would never ever get rid of it. And I ended up trading it in....for a 2019 Mk7.5A little over a year ago I traded in my GTI to dip into the world of V8s. They said I'd be back.
They were right. The grass isn't always greener, and I found that I missed the personality this car had (as well as all the practical benefits of a hatch).
Just picked up this 2020 SE with 11 miles on the odometer today, and for a damn good price. Feels like coming back to an old friend.
Merry &^#@ing Christmas to me!

I paid off my Mk7 very early this year; then COVID hit.....and my local dealer had some huge discounts on their entire inventory. So I took advantage and scored one of the last 19's around here. Can't beat Tornado Red!Some lessons are learned the hard way. However, I am fortunate that the only painful part was some loss of equity. I thoroughly enjoyed the Scat Pack; Dodge makes a beast of a car. Its just too much for a daily, and for just being me. The thing is a drought on wheels if gas is water. I think I needed to see that side for myself to realize it wasn't for me, and to remember why I loved my 3 GTI's before it so much.
This is a beautiful photo! I'm looking into a 2021 GTI and I was all set to get the Tornado Red when I saw the Cornflower Blue. Both are amazing. Two questions for you...1. Do you ever get tired of the red? It's a strong color and I'm worried I might regret it later, 2. Those wheels are amazing!!! What is the name of those wheels? Are the OEM VW Wheels or aftermarket. Please tell me!!
