Everyone please note that the OP is from The Netherlands. The new Scirocco will not be available in the US. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Lame VW always does that they produce a cool looking car with a weak engine.. Why don't they put out a 400HP Golf now that would rock <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> They did make that 600HP W12 GTI but never into production.. sadly.

I took a look at the classifieds on the vwvortex the other day and there were several turbo R32s going for the low twenties. Those look really nice.
