I'm not a big fan of sedans, but I like this one (I think it's partly that beast of an engine). It looks like AUTOart did a good job on this...nice interior, the front end looks particularly good, and I love the color. Congratulations, Jeff!
As for the 1:1 I just read on Tuesday people can order them thru next February and they will be gone from the US in May of 06. Sales were down 52%. They are still going to keep it in Europe where sales are very high.
Now that's one of my favorite models, both in 1:18 and 1:1. I have the AUTOart in silver, and I love it! As for the 1:1, I'm very partial to the diesel (might be a lil' subjective here, as I'm currently driving a 2001 Passat TDI), that packs a very impressive torque at low RPM and overall excellent performance at the expense of lower fuel consumption.
Awesome pictures of a gorgeous model. :nicejob I have the silver one, and it's one of my favorites. Your interior shots are great. If you don't mind me asking, how do you take those pictures? Are you using macro? In a lightbox? Thanks.
All I do is using the macro mode and a mini tripod. I select the "A" function and adjust the lightning from the camera.
Mox: I'm not a big fan of sedans neither (well it depends which) and especially this VW, the engine and the fact that I got it on sale justifies it's presence in my collection....maybe I'll get to like it as the time go by....
Mattdesign : I don't understand neither who would buy a $80K VW. I don't even think that VW sell this model here in Quebec...if so...never seen it!
....to everybody : Thank you for your kind comments :cheers
