I find the RS7 violently ugly, the RS5 SB just seems like a good looking car that was stretched to meet some weird demand for a long car. But I love the RS6, actually I like the RS6, but love the RS4, if they'd brought that over instead, I might have finally succumbed to the stupid automatic thing.

seriously. When I say value, I mean the combined package. Does an Alltrack or GSW 4Motion perform like a GTI or R? Hell no!!! Are they as good looking form the factory?? Maybe the Alltrack is, but the GSW definitely isn’t. But, considering half the guys who get GTIs and R’s upgrade their suspensions, brakes, and even turbos (GTI IS20>IS38, R IS38>Hybrid/BT), you could literally do the same mods on a wagon Golf and end up with a car that performs nearly the same and has more utility, while ultimately costing you less money.

I was referring to the town and country as ugly. lol

I am with you on wagons, I wrote a few angry letters to VWoA when they decided not to give us the R Sportwagon. The economic A-bomb from 2020 and upcoming fallout is putting my RS6 Avant dream in risk (still holding onto my order spot in hope lol), but I'll likely end up with a B7/B8 A4 Avant. I actually prefer the GSW over the Alltrack (hate the Subbie fender flares) but the Audi front end is just IMHO the best offering for wagon porn.

Not sure but something id buy for 30-40k and out the rest of the $ into it.

Example new golf r and 35k worth of mods
Right there with you bud! I figured there would be more VW love, given the forum, and what we all drive... I’d buy an MK7.5 Golf R, preferably Racing Green, from the Spektrum Paint Program. I’d do the dopest Recaro aftermarket seats, and reupholster the interior in Camel Leather. I’d keep my IPA (Satin Bronze) 19” HRE FF01’s off my MK6 GTI... Then I’d have $25k - $30k to tune the fu€k outta it. HPA engine/turbo/exhaust build, H&R full suspension, and StopTech Big Brakes. Alpine stereo equipment with any leftover, though unlikely.

It was I, and I’ve yet to find another vehicle as versatile. I can safely tote my kids, 3 large dog crates and a bunch of camping gear at the same time. Simply pointing out that a minivan holds it own in value for the space it provides. I agree they’re ugly, but slammed on Airlift and rolling on 20”s it can be a head turner. It’s a wagon with more headroom 😂

That is a nice looking minivan. Can't get a more practical vehicle then a van for moving kids, pets and stuff.

Thanks. And all of that is without using the roof rack and 3500lb tow capacity. We want to upgrade and it keeps pointing to another van. Likely a Pacifica.

I’ve honestly never liked vans. This is the exception.
