    For the price, I would hope they would have upped their power output. I've never been impressed by the R, nor the R32 when it was out either. They are very well built cars and very nice. I paid 26k OTD for my WRX IIRC, add 900 for TMIC, add 150 for FP, add 200.00 for DP, 180.00 for CAI, 90.00? I think for 3 port = 320 whp/340 wtq... add 25% or so to that and that's how much under 2 grand got me vs. the what? 35k Golf?

    MUCH more impressed with the new VW GTD at 180 hp and 280 lb ft tq. I believe it is.... and that's @ 45-60 mpg according to a lot of reports.

    I'm with you on that. It won't be exactly a GTI with a diesel engine (won't have the same diff, I believe), but if the current gen GTI is any indication, it will be a fun chassis to throw around, should feel good in the driving I do with all that torque, and will best my current gas mileage by 2 to 3 times. Could be my next car, assuming it succeeds in the states and assuming I can still get away with a car this size with fwd.

    it looks like it will be coming here. My Wife and I have a 2012 LX Accord and we will be trading that one in on a new GTD... what is is? I think 60% stronger chassis? It's bigger, lighter, and those things interiors put our cars to COMPLETE shame!

    P.S. we're still a lot faster though hehe.

    Yeah, it's definitely coming to the states. I'm more concerned with how long it will stay here. I'm not going to be in the market for a new car for years.
