Scirocco R thoughts??

I'm getting fucked off waiting for a decent manual E92 330d to turn up so started looking elsewhere for a possible replacement for the Zed.

This lead me to looking at a 2.0d Scirocco that quickly lead to the 2.0 petrol Scirocco R . Whilst not saving me quite as much as the more frugal diesel variant I do like the look of the R and might help soften the blow of selling my beloved Zed .

So, anyone got any good or bad experience with the R, say over the normal petrol 2.0 GT, or is the 2.0d the engine of choice?? You don't see many around which indicates something is putting people off . I'm a complete VW novice so know nothing.

Also, I'd likely go for a manual 'box, but does anyone know if this is a dog or not. The deal would have to be staggering to get me into a DSG box, which i appreciate it's a brilliant box, it's just not for me (before you all start ).

Any comments appreciated.
