And this is why I hate living in the US! I can buy a Jetta Wagon. I can find a Golf R. Can I get an AWD quick Wagon from VW? NO! I have to go for an Audi, Mercedes or Subaru and getting a manual box is as rare as rocking horse teeth.

Those cars make no sense when the socialist states are so determined to slow the traffic down. And you Brits were the first to come up with the idea of speed limit.
