My thought on it is simple...
Why doesn't VW bring it across the pond, and call it a MK6 GTI??...:iono:
Correct me if I'm wrong but it's based on the same platform as the golfs/rabbits, so why not?...then we'd get the sexy new styling, the power and price it deserves, and they wouldn't have to worry about sacrificing their precious "GTI" nameplate... :wink:
On a sidenote, while on Vacation in Cancun for the last week I spotted 2 1-series...the 1 I got a a good look at it, it was the Hatchback, and I must say the hatch version wasn't nearly as fugly as pictures lead me to believe...the size of the car was good too...the coupes are gonna niiice when they get here
