      seems like it... probably to commemorate their running in the 24 hrs at nordschleife.

      and GLI/GTI brakes
      and GLI/GTI suspension
      and Interlagos interior
      I see a lot more than just a body kit and stickers (though the kit is nice as well).

      Agree. Everyone complains we never get anything cool here, then when we do... they complain about it.
      Great idea VW. Thanks! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I love the idea...I already have one TDI transplanted GLI, so this could fit right in. Are these going for suggested retail or some crazy markup?

      Oh, it is a good idea, and I appreciate VW bringing us some cool stuff, but if they had read the pages and pages of input on the Tex about this concept they would have seen we wanted the 170hp version most of all.
      Even with the 140hp version, I may shop it when it arrives. I want a Golf R, but may need a 4-door. I'd look at this over a regular TDI for sure.

      vw brought one of these and a mk6 tdi golf out to the east coast r32 track day. The TDI's weren't doing to bad in a field full of r32's. I wouldn't be too disappointed about only getting the 140 hp version, 236 torque works quite well and the car looks great. I'll have to look to see if I took any interior pics.

      Cool car, but that front bumper is hideous. There's more plastic mesh than actual front end.\

      Seems like a Jetta "GTD" kind of...
      but.. I still like the one they showed at LA two years ago that never appeared I think it was called TDI Sport:

      It was a GLI with the TDI motor and externally just looked like a sleeper Jetta.

      I think it looks cool, but really wish VW could have seen to fit the 170hp version of the engine as opposed to the 140hp version.

      Ditto... I would have a hard time *not* buying this if VW had decided on the 170HP TDI engine instead. Talk about having your cake and eating it too!

      I agree, if they brought over the R8 brakes & the 170 bhp version, it would've been an 'even more' special edition.... but even as it sits, it's a nice little piece - and it could easily be modified to similar TDI cupcar specs.
