    The NostraJackAss make a reality wish thread.

    Have a wish or something you really needed?

    Make a wish here and describe why you want that wish in brief request or detailed.

    You never know maybe someone will grant it.................

    I'll go first..............

    I think it would be neat for everyone to get together worldwide from this forum and have an epic VAG event...... I wish that could be possible.
    The event would be totally free and only permitted for private RT members and their family of this forum.
    Nothing would be sold and lots of free food, so no underlined agenda.
    I would even teach a brief technical class as have others paid to teach, so guys could write off the expense as an essential training in the automotive field.
    Call me crazy but that is what I want after I keep thinking of this "operation cupcake" idea.

    Yeah amendment ..........

    I want to be able to retrofit the MQB platform as easy as it was on the B6/B7 platform.

    If a certain couple individuals at a certain company would throw out a couple possible dates this fall, I would find a way to get there.

    With no 6-speed manual gearbox available anywhere in the world? Am I the only person who feels that putting an automatic slushbox into any performance-oriented vehicle is a bigger crime against humanity than dieselgate?

    The only VW that I would ever seriously give consideration to owning right now would be an eGolf, or maybe an AWD TDI 10-cylinder Passat with a 6-speed gearbox and clutch pedal if the Easter Bunny were to drop one on American soil. Yes, the eGolf comes with an "automatic" transmission...but it's a one-speed and I cold live with it knowing that the tradeoff was made for technical reasons and not just customer laziness.....

    No you're not, IMHO ALL performance vehicles should have manual shifters as one of the main pleasures in driving is coordinating throttle, clutch and shifter to make shifts smooth and seamless - letting either a slushbox or some mechatronics do it just isn't right.

    What's different about a the Golf R sold in Germany? OK, you can probably order with a sunroof there, but aside from that?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
