    I'm really not surprised by the jump in appeal for VW.
    ------
    VW with Audi's influence has really moved upscale.
    ------
    Case in point...
    Last Summer, I bought a new Touareg TDI Executive Edition over the Audi Q7 TDI mainly because I preferred the size and better proportioned look of the VW over the Audi. Add to this, the more tangible facts that the VW costs much less (about $10k less and had 0% financing) yet still possesses a high quality feel, meant that the Audi struggled in almost every way to convince me of changing my mind.
    -------
    Final words...
    To me, the VW Treg is the "under the radar" luxury vehicle provides all the appeal but without the costs that go along with the "badge."
