One just arrived at my local dealership so I went to check it out. They don't even have a price on it yet. I didn't get to drive it (it literally just got there, but sat in it and fired it up). Didn't think it sounded as cool as a stock Wk1. My initial impression is that I would buy the thing based on the interior alone; it makes my '07s interior look like garbage! I also love the front end, very cool. The rest of the exterior styling just doesn't do it for me though (YET). And I say 'yet' because often when re-designs of new vehicles come out I find myself holding on to the preference for the older models then as time passes the older models look dated to me and I start to like the latest models better (I hope this doesn't happen too soon because I have decided to keep mine for a while!). The odd thing is that when it comes to the non-SRT models I think the Wk2 looks WAY better than the Wk1, just something about the rounded lines on the new SRT that takes some getting used to. Anyway, I really like the new rig and can forsee a time where I'll feel like it might make mine seem dated. At that point maybe I'll consider getting one, but not yet! The Wk1 looks like a Hot Rod, the Wk2 is nice, but I am not sure how to describe except that it is cool and luxurious.
