Was on this forum years ago, moved to Germany and had to sell the Impala....kept coming around at first then I really started to think selling the car was a mistake and kicked myself more and more so I had to stop checking in.


Woke up this morning to find an email about a post that I subscribed to had an update and was like damn, still in the system.

Just picked up a 2012 VW GTi Autobahn edition and love this car. Just wanted to stop in and say hello, might bring myself around to stop in more often and see what is going on in the Impala world.

Guten Tag! What's the price difference on the GTI versus the Scirocco? I had an '86 Scirocco 16-valve in college. I loved the car, but it wouldn't start in Chicago winters. On my last trip to Portugal, I thought the new Scirroco was awesome, and should be imported to the U.S.

I sold the Scirooco to buy a loaded 2000 Impala LS in Galaxy Silver. That was my first car with a working air conditioner and power windows! The 2000 had transmission problems, so I traded it in after September 11th for a 2002 Impala LS in Galaxy SIlver. I was paying a 7.2% interest rate on the 2000, and the 2002 had a 0% rate. Unfortunately, the 2002 had the dreaded "Security" lockout error that the dealer refused to fix. I found a private mechanic who fixed it himself. Although I love how big and quiet the Impala is, the bad experiences I've had owning new GM products leaves me skeptical about their current lineup.

that and I think the 20k members vs 4,300 has something to do with it.

Its hard to find an Impala enthusiast but a GTi enthusiast is almost standerd
