      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.

      like everyone else- awesome whip- wish they put the 170 in- but the torque is ridiculous

      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?

      Thank you VWOA for bringing something cool. You are showing that economy can be fun! Plus with sport suspension you can hold your speed in turns better give you increased mpg from not having to slow down and have to waste energy speeding back up again!

      agreed they should put the motor that they used in the TDI cup cars... 170 hp and like 223lbs. if i'm not mistaking.
      Also they should keep the Audi R8 breaking system on it to!!!
      it would be SICK!!!!!!

      The TDI cup cars have 170hp and 300 ft.lbs
      The 140hp cars have 236 ft.lbs.
      There's so much aftermarket tuning available for TDI's that I don't think the fact they have 140 hp stock should be a breaking point for anyone.

      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.\

      So you guys want them to federalize a different engine for how many cars? Would this make sense to you of you were running the show? Sure, I'd like more horsepower as well, but I sure as hell wouldn't expect them to shell out a couple million to sell a couple thousand cars... and you can just chip it for additional ponies.
