No news on the VW R36 then, the Yanks are raving about it and say theyve heard one is being released sometime in late 2006.

VW better not make us europeans stick with the lowly mk V R32 and make do.

We'll all do what VW uk tell us too, because thats what we always do and nothign will be done about it - so i guess we will get whatever rubbish they want to give us.

I believe the R32 was never originally going to be marketed in the US but when enough people cottoned on to the idea they raised enough stink to make VWoA sit up and listen and get some over there.

Now if we dont get the R36 then we just have to do the same and hopefully we will get some 169144-ok.gif

I would love to see this happen - the Beetle for example has the worst gearboxes every - at 70mph on the motorway mine is at 4k rpm - what kinf of crappy design is that - OH, that woudl be because they can fob this off in the beetle because its a lifestyle change - if I thought they would do anything about it with enough people kicking up then I'd have a go, but I dont belieev they will.

R36 - they will just claim no market for it.

Are you serious? 4k revs at 70 mph?

Is this on a tdi or is it petrol? 'Cos our 130 (6 speed) is at just under 2k when doing 70 mph.

thats on a 1.6 petrol, but the 2.0l petrol is pretty much the same - dreadful gearbox, engine pairings - fuel economy on the motorway is pants - althogh I imagien you guessed that.

***MORE NEWS***

Aparently VW have binned the idea of the new X3 rivaling 4X4 on the Golf platform (like a mini Touareg) and also the Microbus will never go into production but this will be replaced by "something else", I haven't got a frickin clue what they mean by that, but aparntly it will be something to replace the (sh*tty - IMO) Sharan.

If you mean this one...

...then I am truly gutted about this. After having a split screen bus when I was younger, this was going to be the ultimate replacement for my wife's Passat estate... frown.gif

Is there something called a 'Veyron' coming out soon? 1000bhp, or am I the butt of the joke?

Speaking to the sales manager at Wayside, he said that they will build a microbus but it will be classed as a commercial vehicle UHOH7.GIF
