    Looks like a Japanese car. Looks about two feet longer than the current Golf. No thanks.

    I can understand the MKV being a sales failure, but that has more to do with cost than the product not being good. Would you mind referencing where the MKV product received criticism? Not being a fanboy, most everything I've read about the MKV GTI is that it is an amazing 'jack of all trades' car. 7 years ago, if you told me I'd have purchased a new VW, any VW, I'd have called you a crazy person. I liked the MKI and MKII, but the III & IV were severely lacking. That is what shocked me so much after test driving the MKV. My friends where amazed that someone with so much criticism for VW would go out and buy one. While it hasn't been as reliable as I'd have liked, I haven't had a nightmarish ownership experience that I so often hear about from MKIV owners. Really, I love the car. If they could just get reliability to a Subaru/Toyota/Honda level, they'd have a real winner.

    They forgot to put the rear wheels on it.

    Jesus! I no-longer want to design cars. But I did bookmark the video for the next time I can't sleep!
