    You could try the steelies, but 17" Amarok alloys are really cheap (with tyres even) on gumtree and FB marketplace, so I' go there 1st.

    Won't fit I'm afraid.

    Its not the width that is the problem, its the diameter. 16" wont clear the brake calipers.

    It will actually improve the sound a little bit. The GTI exhaust is 2.5" whereas the TSI is 2.25", so a little bit bigger. No performance improvement.

    Yup, unfortunately despite any assertions by VW, the inherent DSG issues (on the 7spd dryclutch fitted to Golfs and Polos) have NOT been fixed. It still is a ticking timebomb, you just have to hope...

    Yes, it works as expected. Supposedly (according to independent flow tests) its the best flowing combination there is.

    The 16" rims (steel or alloy) won't fit over the calipers of anything but the base models of the T5/T5.2/T6. You need 17" plus to fit.

    Agree, and I like it. But the price will be the determining factor. At just under $100K you can have a RSQ3, so a Tiguan R would have to be less than $75K to be worthwhile.
