Other than the driver’s seat being crushed, all is well. Even with that, it’s far more comfortable than I imagined it would be. Currently breaking a curse, as the only car that didn’t make a Sheetz run was the GTI.

Got my offer to rid myself of the VW, and am going to take it. Now to find the replacement, as the one I lined up to look at tomorrow sold. I found a back up, that’s an incredibly good deal, but it is black. I really want yellow or blue. I’ve got 1.5 weeks to find one...

Hadn’t seen that posted here, but it gets a turbo direct injected 1.3, with 177hp/200tq. The 2.4 is now standard, with the manual and 1.4 being dropped.
