The dealerships have been no help with this question (and can I just say that by and large, VW salespeople know less about their product than any other manufacturer I've visited? Seriously, Bob) about the upper trim levels.

Is it possible to get an SE with plaid, not leather, seats? Because if you're going to drive a GTI why the hell would you want some same old same old black leather seats when those sweetass plad numbers are available?

When is this car actually supposed to launch, anyway? Local dealers have been getting one a week with no firm date for actual launch. Asking many thousand over sticker, too.
