    Hey all, TGIF!

    Anyone know anything about importing equivalent cars into the US? Like bringing an HSV Commodore using the SS as an equivalence?

    depending on where the car in question is made it might be cheaper to just paint a US VW

    ~42,000 @ 2.5% is like what 15k but I'm bad a maths and never imported a car so I could be 100% wrong lol

    Yeah, that's brutal. I think my 2013 Golf was the last of the Wolfsburg Golfs to come to the US. Not sure where US mkVIIs come from.

    Even if it were a US option it's a $3000 paint option so you are halfway to custom paint already and don't have to get bent over on pricing because you are special ordering the car. I like the originality aspect of the colors, but having a 3rd party use the paint codes would be IDK....95% as good?

    But seriously, how awesome are these!?
