Poor jezza, always making one mistake after another
That's most probably a Golf GTI and I don't think he has made any mistake by buying a GTI.

Yeah, I know, but with all those billions vw has to cough up and pay in several countries anybody would think twice before buying VW cars at this time. Well atleast till all this smog clears. He he

Obvious that jezza ordered his way before any of this happened.

Somehow a bit of the joke is on us Indians as well.
While Volkswagen's emission cheat code saga is being fined heavily by US emission authorities, Chevrolet forged emissions tests for their Tavera in India is being forgotten.

If you recall, a couple of years ago, news was that Chevrolet forged emissions tests for Tavera in India by selectively supplying better performing engines for the tests, yet they faced a fine of only between Rs 3 crore or Rs 11 Crore (which I am not sure is paid either).

P.S. : Guys, this is India. We couldn't penalise a noodle maker, this is an automobile giant !

Well the ceo of Maggi and further the media will twist it like this. The govt gave a bad name to VW as baba ramdev is planning on launching his car. Politically motivated

VW basically did what engineers in VTU do. Get 35 to pass the external and target 15 in the internals. Total 50. Target Pass achieved.
