Re: Acura EL? (MEIN_VW)
quote:[HR][/HR]The EL sells very well here. For about $24,000.00 you can get it loaded with a CD player, leather, alloys, moonroof, power mirrors, locks, windows, mirrors. By comparison, you'd pay over $30,000.00 for a similarly equipped Jetta.[HR][/HR]
But the dash, the dash!!!
In all seriousness, I don't agree with that. You would get a lot of things on the VW (like heated seats, heated nozzles, gas strut hood, full-size spare, unintrusive trunk hinges, power remote trunk release, and lots of other luxury goodies) that you wouldn't get on the EL. Also, a comparably equipped Jetta 1.8T will not run you anywhere near $30K. The only way to get close to $30K would be to order the sport/lux package and 17" wheels with serious rubber. The EL has puny 15" wheels with meager rubber.... Oh, and there is that matter of the 50+ extra hp and lbs-ft of torque...
