    Is there an AWD version of the RS in other parts of the world?

    Is that true?

    Is there an AWD version of the RS available?

    Does it also have more power out of the EA888 engine? Perhaps something to rival the 206kw Golf R...

    Would that model ever come to Australia?

    If so, I would certainly buy one!

    The closest thing you can get in Australia is either a Golf R Wagon or Skoda Superb 206TSI Sportline.

    I know they did a Diesel AWD RS, not sure if it ever comes to Australia though.

    Apparently neither is as lively as the RS or GTI equivalent. The AWD must have dull the driving experience a bit (bigger body in the case of Skoda).

    If you have axle tramping issue, upgrading the subframe mount(pendulum arm, dogbone insert etc) reduce this significantly.

    For more power, there's always stage 3...
