I do love it to pieces though, so robust so nice to drive... I just cant justify parting with hard earnt good money, its me that will loose out...but i suppose there in it to make hard cash as well !

I was just gutted when this thread opened, where is the justification

Standard US price $24,000 = 14,500
Standard UK price $37,100 = 22,400

For the same dam car !!
Although most Americans are probably oblivious, it is pretty sweet for us on this side of the pond in that regard. Of course, we don't get half the fun stuff the rest of the world does, so that may balance some of it out. I do know that I'm glad to be back in the US (was in Frankfurt recently) when buying fuel. Although prices in Germany have dropped significantly over the past year, it was still 1.388 Euros/L (which is USD$5.25 per gallon if I'm doing the math right) for 95 octane. Let it hit $4.00/gallon here again and maybe VW will finally give us the friggin' 170 bhp 2.0L diesel and/or the GTD. Or maybe the current generation Ford Focus??!!??

Hey man it looks like were getting the crappier seats. Look at the interior shot of the seats on the website.

The mk6 i had out with cloth had the heavy polstered seats similar to our mk5 GTI in the UK not the small sided ones like the americans got in there mk5 GTI. The leather ones in the mk6 GTI in the UK were exactly the same as the cloth ones.
xgstq you would be totally mad to change your mk5 for a mk6. The cars are so similar were it counts that there basically the same.
