I think the first Mk5s here are going to be the Golf-based MPV, with the Golf and variants following about a year later, witht the Jetta shortly after(Get a second opinion on all this
). The R32, the >230hp/4mo one, if it comes to the US will likely be a final edition for the Mk4, like the RX-7 Spirit R, and cost at least $30k.

I'm thinking about ordering an '03 GTI 1.8T (can you believe they've got ESP as an option now? ESP on a ~20k car!).

However, I'm worried that in 2004 or 2005 they're gonna release a new body style with a screaming ~230 hp engine and 4motion. So, does anyone know when this generation will likely be replaced?

Also, I haven't seen the new 17" wheel design for '03..does anyone have a pic of the new wheel design or has anyone seen it yet?

Plus no one knows what the new MKV's are going to look like, from the drawings out there right now (and there are alot of diffrent one's out there) not many people like what they are doing with it.

You are looking at at least 2 maybe 3 years till you see a MK5. If you are looking to get a sporty turbo hatch for around 20K nothing will come close to the GTI 1.8T. Great solid car inside and out with literly thundreds of add-ons and hop-ups to do.

I have yet to see any new wheel style for the 17" VW stock wheel category so if anybody does find this please post for me as well.
