I wish they would do something similar to the Alltrack Combi Concept. Like an Alltrack R (not just R-Line cosmetics)/poor man's RS6 Avant. Last I heard the RS6 Avant might be coming to the States? I would take that Alltrack in Nardo Grey over the MK8 GTI.

Sadly, wishes from this side of the pond never gets fulfilled in most cases.

All we can do is dream!

I wouldn't say go up in value but definitely slow down in depreciation which I would say MK7.5 have already.... I was shocked how much I was offered for mine at a VW dealership

That's not value retention, it's desperation.

I dont see any slow down in depreciation with MK7.5s. In fact, i am taking delivery of a brand new 2019 with $6700 off sticker this week.

I've made that mistake before on a grand cherokee. I bought the last year model because I thought the newer model looked worse. Two years later and I regretted it, the new ones look grew on me and everyone in the forums had them and all these cool mods for them.

The European ones always get more power.

Gti are weird. Used ones go for what you can get a new one for but that's becuase they are already selling way below msrp. If you were buying a gti at msrp the gti would lose a ton of value, but because it loses a ton of value when it's brand new it holds value really well after the fact. Last year when i was looking you could do one of two things, get a brand new one for 23-28k or get a slightly used one for 1-1.5k less. The only gti for the mk7 that really lose a ton of cash was the 2015s
