    Yes I was serious , a rumour is "a currently circulating story or report of uncertain or doubtful truth" now everyone knew the story was true and the official announcement was being released this morning , as it was.

    Oh and by the way there is still nothing on the official site , even Hyundai has put out a statement regarding the situation.

    20 years from now we’ll probably be able to look back and see that VW’s dieselgate was one of the last nails on combustion engine coffin.

    Ironically, after sinking the petrol boat VW’s managers are eagerly moving to eco motion land, like frightening rats running for their life’s…the previous VW board was packed with liars; the current one is full of traitors.

    They’re not only rejecting Petrolheads and Motorsport fans; they’re rejecting their own heritage. It’s sad and stupid, because renouncing our heritage is the first step to our extinction.

    Btw, the promised R5 looks like a consolation prize for rally community; they can stick it up on their asses!

    Goodbye VW and good riddance!
