Just tried to find pics on the net but to no avail, There was plenty of talk about it tho. Anyway does that mean someone wants to sell me their .:R to me cheaply ??? No didnt think so.

Not sure about the rear end.

Seems a bit strange that VW are toying with a mk6 when they have only just released the mk5 not long ago. I was under the impression VW left each mk of Golf run about 5 years?

Dont get to excited it is afterall from that magazine that loves a photoshop and if you look at it it has exactly that audi rear lights the VW eunos front lights etc.

The reason they have brought forward the mk6 is due to the awful sales of the mk5 and spiralling costs of the mk5, apprently I have heard that they actually lose money on the mk5s due to excessive prodution time, 50hours per car vs 20hours per car for a focus.

The mk6 was due a 2010 release so expect now in 2008.

From what I've read the production time and cost to make the mkv is very high compared to rival manufacturers and this is hitting VW's profitability. I guess the mkv will be the last Golf to be engineered without cost being the main factor.

Agreed. I much prefer the mk4 R32.

As for the mk5 costing them too much money on the production line, lets hope that whatever they do to get this figure down doesnt affect the overall quality of the finished product.

I like the look from the front, but the view from the side just screams Alfra Romeo 147! I still think that it is way too early for a new golf, it'll ruin the image and the name "Golf". Plus it'll mess up the Anniversary models in the future!

A geezer told me the other week at the Audi garage that the MK6 isnt to far away.

The front grill detail looks very much like the new audi's

Looks like an Alfa to me too. Dont think I like it, plus its too early for a new Golf, i'm still coming to terms with the MK5 (sorry mk5 owners)

Sorry to pee on the mk5 owners club but i personally think that the new
mk6 should of been the mk5 from the beginning. But the mk5 gti is a
work of art though so i cant knock the whole mk5 range [:D]
