See you in 2016
Yeah, read the same article today. My calculation equates 290 HP to approx 216 KW, which is firmly into STi territory as far as engine performance goes, wrapped up in the refined VW interior and chassis. Golf R expect 2013, probably towards end of year.

The Golf RS with the 360 HP, approx 268 KW is expected to be a tuned version of the 5 cylinder turbo in the Audi RS3, which should prove to be a missile.

Bring it on, I will be placing order number 1.
