Sorry to disagree but you are wrong. The Bora Variant was offered alongside the Golf Variant in most European markets. However this situation was true in North America where the Golf variany was never sold. Both of these are still on sale in Europe, though Bora saloon and Variant production is due to end within the next few weeks.In the UK the MKIV estate was the Golf.
In Europe the MKIV estate was the Bora.
My guess is that it is a european import.
Glen, don't forget the Passat is available in TDI 130 4 motion guise in the UK. I maybe biased, but in my opinion, it is a much better family car than the golf, and also better value for money.Im toying with the idea of a golf estate(being a family man now)and after spotting this i would love to import a tdi 4mo,it's just finding one
