I hate that NA couldn't get it in 4motion (supposedly due to the use of a solid beam axle which was necessary due to the presence of the AdBlue equipment)
That said I've been every now and then trying to see what's available out there for swap potential.
I'm not 100% sure on the iteration of the 4motion system on the newer MK7 Sportwagens (such as the alltrack or 4motion sportwagen) and how different they are compared to something that's more readily available right now (such as a junked MK6 Golf R like in this thread) but I THINK they're roughly the same.
This said, I would think the BIGGEST challenge would be the find a 4motion setup that has the proper gearing to match a diesel engine.
I wonder how hard it would be to come across a Eurospec B8 Passat TDI 4motion and see what could be pulled for parts.
