Looks perfect by the way :-)

Either GTI or nothing. I don't get this whole MKVI nonsense - it's suggesting the very obvious to anyone who gives a shit.

Manual transmission is definitely not a dying breed. The choice of gearbox is inverted in Europe - probably 80% of folks have a MT. The US has always been a country where the auto tranny is...

I was thinking of just welding up the suspension and getting an air ride seat from a John Deere. I could just add the cutting deck and have a multi-purpose vehicle!
