      Car and Driver broke a story that the US is getting the "R" golf w/ 270 hp turbo 4, awd, available in 3 or 5 doors, dsg or manual.

      This isn't news to vortex, I'm sure, But: THIS IS GREAT NEWS! So if VW is serious about the US Market this is the perfect type of product to bring.

      I'll take a black-magic pearl, 5-door, manual (not dsg), black-leather sport seats (with black headliner), sunroof, xenons, heated seats, and I'm set. Thank you VW!!

      I passed on the mkV R32 to wait for the mkVI GTI... now this comes in the picture, fantastic! Wonder what the price point will be....

      Good find! I like the front of that car a LOT more than Car and Driver's version.
      The wheels are fugly but that's an easy fix.

      The Rear Diffuser looks really good. I hope it is functions as good as it looks.

      I'm ready to buy one....

      It's a rendering. The car won't look anything like that one. Bet on it.

      the rendering has a kernel of truth... it looks like it is meant to directly compete with the Focus RS in the UK market. I think the actual car will look like something in between the C&D and the new photos....

      I just hope they bring a 5 door manual to the US. I have zero interest in a DSG trans and need the two extra doors to make it kid friendly.

      As it is, there has been nothing to entice me out of my 2000 GTI-GLX for almost 10 years now. And I have been a loyal customer for over 30 years.

      Not even a 4dr GTI with leather and a manual tranny? You have to admit that is a pretty nice car right there. Or do you just prefer 6 cyl. cars? I believe your GTI is right?

      I was just about to say the very same thing.

      Actually VW had stated a while back that the new car would have a trick diffuser on the car.
