hi all, i'm about to get my 5 door GTI soon and i just learnt that it's made in South Africa. my dealer says that the 5 doors are made in SA, while the 3 doors are made in Germany. Just wondering if there is any noticeable difference, ie. quality wise? and i can assume the engine and all that are made in germany and "assembled" in SA? ??? grateful for any feedbacks!
