  1. That is great news! I am disappointed it will be manual only though…

  2. Jay, I’ve seen a few estimates on U.S. horsepower ranging from your listed 256 to upwards of 270. Is 256 the final word?

  3. Hi Jay,

    I am very excited to finally see this coming to the USA. Do you know if it is going to have the RNS 510 instead of the RNS 315 in the GTI. I don’t think it is reasonable to put such a small and low res screen in a $35,000 car.
