It's like somebody misplaced it on the lot and it just now turned up. Still has all the protectant from the factory

Given the state of the tow hook, I suspect that you're not wrong.

Pretty sure it's a 6-speed. I do think the Alltrack trim & brakes make it a nicer vehicle. You just have to make sure to not get the pano roof.

That's crazy that VW would offer a 5-speed on the mk7. Goes to show how little I know (or how much care I take looking at lukewarm cars).

Maybe they got confused and thought it's a diesel. Left it back there...
