What do you all think? First I didn't like it, but then I heard that a 2.0T with FSI and DSG was an optional powertrain and read that apparently some of the Euro's had been chipping the 2.0T's to be quicker than a stock R32.

After that the appearance grew on me. I think it'll be around $27-28 for the new 2.0T. Not sure about the VR6, but some of the Euro's said the 2.0T is nearly 300 lbs lighter than the 1.8T and a lot lighter than the new VR6. I'm beginning to think the VR6 is a bit overhyped or at least wouldn't be worth dropping the extra coin for a VR6 in the newer MKV. If the 2.0T is quicker and more agile, why get a bigger engine?

I think a nice drop, black out the headlight housings, some BBS rims and shave the trunk emblems and perhaps a grill would make it look sick.

I heard it's supposed to drop early 2006, but some people say Canada will get the GTI before the states because apparently we love hatchbacks up here.

Real ones....Slammed:




Not a big fan of kits, except the 337 stuff, but nonetheless:




Photoshop (Shaved Emblems and did away with the lights on the hatch. I think it looks better)

The mk5 2.0T gti is gonna be about 150-200lbs heavier than the mk4 1.8T gti.
I don't think the VR6 is gonna be offered in the mk5s, execept for the r36. 3.6L, 280hp.

newsflash... all new generation cars are heavier then the old generation.

More features, mainly safety features, etc is what usually accounts for the extra weight.

just take a look @ the car from the 80's and compare it to one from 2005...

No actually it isn't "gonna" be 200 lbs heavier. Because the Europeans have had the MKV's since 2004 and they already have acknowledged they are in fact 200 lbs lighter.

Personally I think it looks like . I think it's a car they could've done a lot better on had they really tried to work on the style.. this seems half-assed to me. It'll probably grow on me a bit, but I'm still disappointed. I was hoping for something a lot nicer out of the next generation of Golf.

Sir_Romp_Stomp is an unknown quantity at this point
I agree with midnighter, it is half assed.
all they did was round up the curves a little bit, and slapped on some different rims.

Lol... this is a compleatly NEW car... the frame is new, everything..

The frame in itself is 57% STIFFER then compaired to the MK4...

I think it looks pretty good in stock form... once they're modified they can looks really nice.

and now they finally have IRS, a new 2L Turbo a good gearbox that won't blow up...

The GTI is playing all good cards this time around..

:thumbsup
