There has been some talk about a diesel GTI/GTD/GTTDI but as yet, nothing is confirmed, at least that i am aware of. However AFAIK the Passat is getting a 160bhp TDI engine in March, so it sould appear in a golf before the end of 2005, probably November, in some shape or form.
Whether they give it the GTI badge/styling is another thing, but the rumour mill suggests they will.
I too would be very interested in such a beast, even a 4motion 160 TDI.
If thats the case, then why bother buying it? It would be much easier and cheaper to remap the GT TDI's. I was hoping they would use the larget turbo as used in the VW racing TDI cars which would allow the power to be pushed over 200bhp.
Depends who you get to chip it. Most chips are currently in the high 170-180's that ive seen quoted. Most reputable chipping companys (superchips and oettinger) will maintain the warrenty for you. Therefore if anything goes wrong as a result of the car being chipped, they will pay.
