What part of this do you not get?

Can you answer me on the VW Polo, or the deisel audi engines not making these shores? No? Why, I thought you were working "in the industry"...
I'm probably late on this, but the bottleneck of Mercedes is their transmissions. Particularly the manual...it needs to be extremely needed up to hold power, and for some of those cars that weigh like 4000+? Lbs...that's a lot. Sexy engines though!
