      Out last night in Washington D.C.'s Chinatown I spotted the bright green GTD below (not easily missed), it is property of VWoA which is headquartered now not too far away in VA- Guess they just had it out for a spin...

      Yeah, looks like a real one. Euro Spec as well, No side markers on the front bumper, and it's got both front and rear parking sensors.

      No pic to prove it but my wife spotted a TDI 4 motion Tiguan here in Cleveland with NY plates.

      It was during Marine week so I wonder if a serviceman had it shipped over.

      The diesel version of a GTI.

      Looks like it has headlight washers as well. I want a GTD, not that color, but a GTD.

      We all have the cutouts for the headlight washers (or I do at least), but I also spot some parking/distance sensors

      negative. its 170 hp, idk the torque. higher than the tdi.

      its like this:
      GTI is to Golf, as GTD is to Golf TDI.

      if they had it over here for consumer purchase, i'd have a GTD instead of a GTI any day.

      mileage + fun? hell yeah. plus you can do alot to get good HP/TQ out of these. 250whp+>310wtq would be so awesome, and probably not too hard on these. im jealous someone gets one haha.

      definitely would get it in black imo.

      If they offered those in the states, (especially with the real color choices) I would sell my TDI and get into one of those without thinking twice about it.

      Or if they offered a scirroco tdi.

      VW really needs give us a better selection of colors in the US, but what do they do? The drop one of the best.

      Dear VWoA,
      Please bring back colors to the US. Also, the GTD would be nice as well. But don't forget the colors.
