Any thoughts on whether this car will be DS or GS? Looks like the Mk6 was only a bit slower than the FoSTs, and this car will have more power & much more torque, along with bigger brakes and a mechanical LSD. Will also be lighter. I think it was mentioned that they wouldn't split model packages (PP vs. non-PP), just curious.
VWoA hasn't done such a great job advertising the specifics, the details aren't so well known.
GTI MK7 with PP gets 10hp, 10mm bigger brakes, and an electronically controlled limited slip, haldex style. This is in contrast to the base XDS+ which brakes the spinning wheel and supposedly doesn't work as well as the FoST system. There is reportedly no torque increase, the extra 10hp comes at the very top of the rev range.
