Re: Plans for Skoda coming to SA

I think I understand what Tander is saying. If Skoda's sell for less than a comparable VW, but is similarly specc'ed, then those sales could come at the expense of VW sales. Why buy a Polo if you can get a Skoda with similar specs for cheaper. That's exactly what I am saying. And I agree with you f...

Re: Golf 7 face-lift indicative pricing

Not bad considering the difference in market size, poverty spec they get and zero service/maintenance plans. Is the GTi a full import now, or is it manufactured in SA? We make Polo's here, nothing else, every Golf is an import. Ah, so the price diff. between the US and here includes our exorbitant ...

I agree. I always love when the Mk1/Citi debates come up and you see each person's justifications.
I just learned something new on this thread regarding the C pillar being the definitive reason a CITI can't be called a MK1.
