For a change, I'd go for mkvii or the golf r if dsg option is available. Vw dsg is a fantastic transmission. The use of material is high quality and comparable to bimmer or merc - if not better.

Well, personally, red has been my first color choice if I were to order one. The last time I check, Porsche charges 3000 for a similar red (crimson red, I believe) for 2013 Cayenne and 5000 for the...
