Looks drivable. I think you can resuscitate it.

So i'm in the market for a new car. ...

Mk5 GTI if you can afford one. It's the car that the twin charged 1.4 wishes it was.

What's the GTI equivalent in Wagon form? As I don't think I have any luck looking for a GTI Wagon.

The 2.0TSI is the GTI equivalent wagon. Same engine in the wagon body.

I still wonder what the VW design team was smoking when they made the rear end of the MK5 Variant. All it needed was some Passat style rear lights and it would have sold in droves.

I'm selling a black 2.0t wagon if you're interested. Posting on Trademe shortly, will edit and add link.

Might want to amend your ad to Mk7 wheels instead of Mk6

Cheers, will do!

That looks like a beauty!   
My budget is only 7.5K-8K so that's out of my league, but would have definitely taken a hard look at it otherwise.
