Yeah but the GTI already makes 258, the R only makes 280, somewhere in between isn't much of a bump is what I'm getting at.
The Mk8 GTI is listed as 273, so I bet it won't get limited from the DSG. The important thing for me is whether the Mk8 R with a manual is still using the new Conti turbo or if they're just recycling the IS38. If the latter, I'll just keep this car. I don't really have much interest in a Mk8 GTI.

"We tested a GTI with the auto 'box, which had smart shifts and helped deliver the hatch to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds–0.7 quicker than a last-gen Rabbit edition with the automatic.

C/D TEST RESULTS
Curb weight: 3154 lb

60 mph: 5.1 sec
100 mph: 12.2 sec
1/4 mile: 13.6 sec @ 105 mph
130 mph: 24.6 sec
Results above omit 1-ft rollout of 0.3 sec.
Rolling start, 5–60 mph: 5.5 sec"

That's genuinely quick for a hothatch.

The closest I got to a mk8 GTi in Finland was a brochure I picked up. Dolphin gray is an interesting choice for a name. Can’t say I enjoy any of the wheel options either.

GTI wheels, total crap for two generations. A friend of mine had a Dolphin Grey B6 A4. It was actually the car that taught me that heated seats are 10x better with cloth than leather.
