I hope they bring it, no one knows for sure. If they are going to make the difference between a golf and gti greater, in the mk7 ie lighter weight materials and greater horsepower jump then this sounds like a benchmark jump from the gti to an R or RS that could be feasible given that all the components are on the shelf right now.

The somewhat curiously named sunroof and nav package also adds KESSY and Dynaudio. It's quite a feature upgrade for just $1500. I think the base R only exists to bring the starting MSRP under 34k.

2017 is the earliest I'd be looking to trade my R, so if they time it for then, I'm in.

I doubt we'll see it in the US at all, though.

great point on the base R / MSRP issue.

agreed on both points, and yeah, by then I should still have the GTI with a nice other German bred race machine in the garage, which will not be another VW...

make that 25% more expensive and Euro pricing too
You Americans make me laugh...

Would you like to explain your statement "not so many Europeans can afford a 30k golf". A $30k golf in Europe is a very ordinary one. The GTI/GTD over here will easily run in excess of $50k without trying too hard but still they sell them in huge numbers. It is a very ordinary car over here.

Do I understand from your statement that you understand us "Europeans" to all be on the poverty line? Oh how we all aspire to be wealthy and sophisticated like you Americans!

p.s. I'm not trying to provoke a European - American war (I like you guys) merely pointing out that it is statements like that which tarnish Americans as ignorant.
