READING your June issue (again) I found the PR piece by Tony Weber informing us of how wonderful the Australian car importers all are and how private imports are bad for us.

Given I have only just purchased a new VW Golf R and I donít get the full engine power, donít get the large touchscreen and have to pay the importer $20,000 more for the same model car than either Europeans and Americans do, I believe his article is at best facile nonsense or outright lies.

Iím not singling out Volkswagen, as some of their models are fairly priced, unlike other German brands.
