So i went and test drove a MK6 and MK7. Honestly i did not notice a ton of difference, aside from that they felt worlds better than my 04 Passat. I am leaning towards a MK6 because they are quite a lot cheaper where i am looking.
I consider myself more of your average consumer than a diesel nut. Easier maintenance is very important to me and i think alot of the handling benefits noted in the replies above were lost on me.
All in all, both felt like great cars!

In partial jest, maybe a 2003 ALH is the better TDI for you?

Although I'm a MkIV loyalist, we now have two Mk7's in the family. I purposely skipped the Mk6, but (she) got a zero-miles GSW when the stop-sale ended. I waited a year because I was dubious, but the car was so good, we now have two (both stick). IMO, the Mk7 is a better engine, in a better platform, and as an aside, I prefer the styling. My guess is that long term, the maintenance comparison between the 6 and 7 might be a wash, but the initial problems/complaints about the Mk6, and enough anecdotal stories from talking to owners (intercooler icing and HPFP concerns) made the transition to MQB worth the wait.

The mk6's are definitely bargain basement prices. If I had planned my buyback a little better, I could have bought another mk6 golf tdi for about the same price as I paid for my mk6 golf 2.5l replacement. About $5k.
