The TDI does have equipment that's not on the base 2.5 though, including better audio system and alloys. But... $4770? Are diesel engines that much more expensive to make?

There is no stripped-down model of the Golf TDI being offered currently. The standard features are not much different than the GTI, which is about $23,500 when configured closest to the Golf TDI. So a GTI with premium sound and 17" wheels is about $1500 more than the Golf.
Remember, what it costs to own a TDI is always about fuel economy and depreciation, and not about purchase price.
Maybe there will be a stripped-down version of the Golf TDI sometime next year, with 15" steel wheels, basic sound system, and no sunroof. Then look for a price around $19,500 or a few hundred more.

2010 Golf TDI pricing
Apologize for the incorrect link earlier, and thanks for providing the correct link. I'm on TDY and my internet connection was terminating soon.
Golf TDI is highly contented compared to past Golf TDI trims. Still, it is priced at a substantial premium and I expect the cost of entry to be a problem for non diesel and non VW fans.
#826 of 832 Still 10% off an A3

Fully loaded, this is 10% less than the base price of an A3.
This car remains highly appealing at it's price point, and I'd be surprised if it
didn't sell like hotcakes

I've heard absolutely no word of a GTD coming to America. None. Each magazine has clearly stated that America will not get the GTD. Years from now? Who knows - that goes for any car. But for now? No GTD and whoever is making the claim that we are getting it will have to give some facts on that one. That's the one I want but will gladly settle for the standard TDI Golf. An $800 chip will give you practically the same performance as the GTD.

I wonder what the difference in suspension will be on the Golf we get in the US, to the much praised Golf GTD being tested all over the World? The extra 30 HP is not as important to me as the handling and braking. I am also hoping they come with the seats that the GTI has.

thammer: where did you get the idea that it would cost $800 for a chip (aka remapping the engine computer)? The most I've ever paid to chip a VW TDI was around $300.

vwgreg post 110this idiot who says the GTD wont be here in oct. absolutely has no idea what he is talking about. i can see the GTDs on my vw ordering site, however i cant activate an order for one yet.
Contact vwgreg to order a GTD, they should be at dealer very soon (according to vwgreg).

The only person who is an idiot is the person who mails "vwgreg" money for a GTD when it is impossible to get one in this country for multiple reasons. So fishy sounding. Please give some proof that it's coming or stop teasing people who believe everything they read on the lovely internet.

I actually meant to hit 3 as in $300 instead of 800 for the chip cost. I don't know if I'm the only one with this problem but with texting now as convenient and popular as it is, the numbers are upsidedown when I type on a numbers keypad on my keyboard - and I constantly have to pause to remember which task I'm doing:

Oh well, probably just me.
