They sure are "deleting" a lot.
Like "Delete A/C outlet in center console storage bin". Um...that is a good feature they are deleting.

Why is VW dumbing down their cars?
Maybe so there is less to break?
Is this the only way they can begin to compete in quality with Hyundai and Nissan?

Most of these change points are for cost-cutting reasons. Volkswagen has been trying to get a break from suppliers but that has been difficult due to the global economic situation. Not to mention, the exchange rates are not helping the situation.

any confirmation of these changes? i'm deciding b/w waiting for a 07 GLI or getting a sweet deal on 06 and this is relevant.

i like the deletion of window chrome and lowered height but the other changes seem to cheapen things up quite a bit.

any added info is apprecaited...

Deletion of soft-touch is a good thing. It looks crappy when it starts to peel off like dead skin after a sunburn.
