Thank you. The limited options available in the US surprised me when I first started looking on this site; though I understand wagons and manual transmissions never will be as ubiquitous in the states as they are in Norway/Europe it surprises me that you have only one engine option, and no LED/Xenon option. You're a BIG market, and even if only 10% of the market was interested in wagons/manuals; that would translate into a hellofa lot of cars in absolute terms.

I'm also surprised that basic models in the US make do with drum brakes on the back set of wheels, that would never cut it here on any model.

It drives wonderfully smooth (not as smooth over speed bumps as the airsuspension Merc in the background, but really wonderfully balanced in most situations). And the adaptive cruise control is a thing of wonder. No if I only could get the crappy Samsung Galaxy S2 bluetooth drivers to connect ....my wife's much simpler cell works beautifully.

And it's built in Germany (unlike a lot of cars considered German).

I think you might mean Velkommen (welcome); "Ha det" means Goodbye (as in "have it good" or rather; "be well"). But nice try!
