It'll probably be simpler to just pick up a 2006 TDI and add GLI cosmetic modifications.beranpeter said:well the GLI has really nice options... interior, exterior, and suspension.
I haven't....but I also haven't been looking.quadcomm said:I think there was a genuine MK3 Harlequin with a TDI swap a few years ago.. I can't really remember though. Have you heard of it?
Agreed the most GLI stuff can be retrofitted into the TDI. And retrofitting the TDI into the gasser would be a pain to do and get registered.kcfoxie said:I think you're going to run into real issues with trying to put an older engine into a newer vehicle.
You'd be better off to get a TDI and then add the GLI trim package items to it; seriously we're talking a lower valance, springs, wheels, a spoiler and that's about it. The interior isn't special to the GLI (real leather? maby?) its just some minor, and I mean minor, tweaks to the exterior and suspension.
