of course they won't be getting it.. they produce the r20 now.. i was talking about getting a used one.. you could find some 2008s for much less than that i think.. and they won't look too "dated" compared to the mk5 gti if you see what i mean..

Perhaps...but not in this area...considering only a handful of r32's were sold in this part of the country, I would have to get one from Toronto or Montreal which are 16 and 12 hour drives respectively from where I live.

Its do-able...but for the same price id rather get a new 2011 GTI...sure it doesnt start with anywhere near the performance...but you're getting a new car with loads of potential if you want to invest in mods.

I've a FSI, and I love the new 2010/2011's. I don't know if I'd pay double the price for a very similar car just because of cam follower and oil consumption fears.

Properly maintained, the FSI is fine. I've 82k on my 2008 and no issues. I've changed my follower twice ($40 a pop) and top the oil up.

Don't get me wrong, the mkVI's are lovely, and truth be told I'd lean towards a new one. But 18k for a fully loaded 07 is a sweet deal.

I'd probably go for a R32 if I lived where it snowed anyway....

id take the tsi over the fsi any day. yea it is a great car regardless, but there are many many fsi owners who are just sick of the cam follower issue, and would rather have a tsi.

But lets not get to overboard here, the TSI has problems of its own, not as major as the fsi, but it has them. Starting to see TSI's with some mileage on them now, 30-40k and the some issues im noticing are misfires and clutch issues.(both of which i have experienced)

Again, id go for the 2011, get the warranty and the 3 yrs of free service
remember its just my opinion...

Not in Canada. Canada gets the 4 year/80000km comprehensive warranty which is longer than the 3 year US comprehensive warranty but there is no free maintenance.

Thanks for the info on the FSI vs TSI engine...much appreciated.

I am leaning towards a 2 door Black 2011 GTi....i may opt not to get the 18 inch rim package for $975.00 and instead opt to buy aftermarket 18 inch rims with better rubber and use the 17 inch rims for winter tires or sell them seperatley on kijiji.

Anyone have tips for buying rims/rubber....any good sites that ship to Canada? Thanks.

contact Phil, he can hook you up with wheels and he lives in GTA iirc.

Im actually very close to purchasing a 2011 CSG 2-dr 6-speed for about 2 g's under invoice...
09 was a limited production year for the mkv, so theyre a bit harder to find.

No, 100% stock I will probably get a stg 1 chip though. It is my general impression that the TSI cars run slightly stronger than the FSI's?

I had my MkV for 3 years and never had a problem beat it every day and night and nothing ever went wrong with the car. It also spent 2 years at SII+ and I had an FSI. They can be flaky though 08+ is what I look at IMO.
