    Yay! A diesel rabbit. That...should...should be...(snore)

    Heh. In all fairness, assuming we're talking about a TDI and not some crappy 5hp euro city car engine, then it can't be too bad. The review might just have been written by a 1.8t fanboy. Like myself. :big grin:

    isnt the new common rail TDI like 140hp/245tq or something like that? That and 45-50mpg would be mint for a daily driver.

    its a nice car for the price, without anything toget excited about. that includes the gas mileage (since the 2.0t gets better despite 50 more hp)

    That sounds about right. Europeans don't drive diesel because it's sexy, they drive diesel because it's practical. That said, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it has lots of subtle "hey cool, I never noticed that before, that's really nice" features in place of chrome dubs and a samurai wing.

    nice car, doesn't really compete with the Mazda 3 - however A Class, 1 series, A3,...are all up there :dunno:

    as said it's nothing to get all excited about, but if you want a solid car go for the TDI - basically this is what Average Joe drives over here :)

    friend of mine has a grey one. it moves pretty nicely. it almost sounds like a VR. he's got intake, exhaust, suspension, and spacers. it looks great. he's going to have some 18's on it in the spring. i would buyone if i wanted the monthly payment, but i really don't they will be cheap in a couple years when people trade them in. i'll get one then and turbo it. for now i love my MKII.
