I plan on buying a new Golf this year and I feel that the 1.8T should definetly be an option on the GL for 2003. The Jetta GL and the Beetle GL get this option, so why doesn't the Golf. What do you think?

The GL is the bargain-basement VW model. I do think it should be back on the GLS model, so there is a non-Jetta 4-door turbo in the lineup.[HR][/HR]
I agree. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
In my ideal world, I would like to see...
Upgraded 2.0 with 16v.
Golf GL 2 or 4 door with 2.0 or TDI. No other options.
Golf GLS 2 or 4 door with 2.0, TDI, 1.8T or VR6. Optional leather, sunroof, alloy wheels, etc.
Golf GLX 2 or 4 door with 1.8T or VR6. All options standard include Climatronic.
GTI exists as a PIO trimline with upgraded sport cloth seats, foglight, smoked taillights, alloy wheels and suspension.
This will not fly in US because not enough people buy Golfs to justify the tooling cost.

It was never on the GL nor will it ever. A 2 door turbo Golf is called the GTI, a 2 door turbo golf non-GTI just wouldn't work. I do think they should have a 4 door Golf GLS, but maybe it wasn't selling
bleh, i meant a turbo 2 door. Yes, I know there is a GL 2 door.[/edit]

1.8T will be an option on the GL Jetta for 2003, it will be an option on the GL Beetle for 2003, why not offer the 150HP 1.8T on the Golf. That version should not steal sales from the GTI and it would be a step above the 2.0.

Where do I begin? Perhaps that 2-door Golf GL I've been driving the past two years REALLY is a GTI after all!
Get the facts straight before you post, Junior![HR][/HR]
