When did VW bring all of teh stylists from the 911 team over to the Golf team? I guess they weren't busy not redesigning the 911, so they had plenty of time to not redesign the Golf...

They should stick to cars like this that don't compete and get everyone riled up.

Funny answer:

Actually, the stylists were originally on loan from VW in the first place.

They only didn't redesign the 911 in their spare time, when they weren't busy not redesigning the main product line.





Serious answer: Why do we feel it necessary to constantly change the cosmetic styling of cars just for the sake of change? When did the designers of women's clothing and purses start running the auto industry?

Because, Joe, if they don't do that, people won't feel the need to buy a new car. If you could just bolt on the fixed part, you'd do that instead, wouldn't you?

Our economy is based on selling products instead of services to repair them. Get to Jonesing, Joe.

What if I want to hold it. And smell it. And admire it, before I purchase? Can I press a button and some guy comes out and shows it to me?

Looks pretty changed to me. Why do people expect huge changes in cars. A company is not going to radically change a cars design, especially if it is a big seller. The only cars that make huge leaps are the ones that had **** sales, and they needed to do something in desperation. I see almost no lines that are the same between the two of them. What did people want the Golf the be a truck this time around? I don't get it.

Exactly.

It's still obviously recognizable as a VW Golf, in the same way that an NC is instantly recognizable as a Miata, despite the fact that it shares no parts or body metal in common with one.

Personally, yes.

However I've learned that my own automotive habits are not representative of those of humans. Many people buy new cars at regular intervals simply because they wish to drive a car which is less than "X" years old, or has fewer than "X" miles on it.

Case in point: during the 1960s and 1970s, many people purchased new Volkswagens at regular intervals, despite the fact that the majority of the parts from this year's model would fit just fine on last year's.

In our internal lingo, the process of recruiting a source is called Jonesing. (As in the drug reference, not the consumer culture reference.)

This is a random picture:



Literally, random. As in, I mashed a bunch of keys into the search box, closed my eyes, hit PgDn a bunch of times, then clicked the mouse randomly on the screen.
