Since we got the 337 I figured this might be worth a shot.

Would you seriously be interested in buying the R32 if it was produced for North America with most of the following?

1. 4-motion
2. 240hp VR6
3. Climatronic
4. A 190 mph speedo & brushed aluminum trim
5. Sculpted 3-spoke sport steering wheel
6. 6-speed manual
7. HIDs + washer jets
8. Navigation system
9. Body kit
10. Carbon fiber dash
11. 18" wheels
12. Jetta air vents.
13. Sport seats
14. "R" badges
15. Dual exhaust tips

I don't really like the wheels but that is a very impressive list of features but something like this would probably be out of the price range of most young people hehe

Whats the difference between that and the GTi 337 that is coming out?

Starting with a 180hp 1.8T GTI GLS, the following extra equipment and changes have been made:

- 18" BBS RC Wheels with 225/40-ZR18 High-Performance Summer Tires

- greatly improved sport suspension - 1" lower overall ride height

- Votex body kit with front valance, side skirts, rear hatch wing and rear valance with 3" chromed exhaust tip

- 315mm (12.4") diameter vented front and 256mm (10") rear vented brakes with red powder coated calipers

- All-new six-speed MQ350 transmission

- Recaro front seats in special "LeMans" red and black cloth with custom GTI embroidery

- Brushed aluminum interior trim accents

- Red stitching on steering wheel, shift boot, handbrake knob and seats

- Special golf ball shift knob

- Aluminum pedals with rubber inserts

- Stainless steel exhaust with mild sound tuning

- Red trimmed floor mats

- Special exterior retro GTI badging

- Monsoon sound system (U.S. only)

- and more

So the biggest difference is in the features... like the engine HP... the navi. system, Xenon, etc, etc, etc, etc!
