    Seems quite possible given how 'untaxed' the engine is and the general reliability of stage 1/2 GTIs over many years.

    I don't get it, the front wheels can't handle the power now if you nail it at low speed and that's with the tricky diff.

    I'm assuming they're continuing development on making the whole thing work properly.. which is likely why there isn't a 224kW option now.

    The fact is the front drive hot hatch market is playing in the 200kW space now.
