And it's not just about cost vs. savings, IMHO the TDI engine is what makes the car."I see posts on how a TDI lasts forever but it doesn't matter if you sell the car by 100,000 miles. In that time you've paid the premium for the diesel engine but have you gotten that value back?"
I'm taking delivery of a 2010 Golf TDI soon (wish I had a firm date) as to paying off the premium for the diesel, I've already done it with the 1700 Fed tax credit, and the $0 state (CT) sales tax incentive. Total tax savings $3200! Of course I couldn't get a basic unit like I could with the gas Golf, nor could I negotiate anything...
