Yeah I'm sure that's the case, but do you think they'd skip over the MK6 Golf R? I hope not lol that's my only hope.
I thought they were planning on the Mk6 R which had my hopes up since it's an FSI. But obviously it's a completely different ECU than the MkV FSI.

People on the interwebz (including employees of REVO and Bluefin) are pretty convinced it is in fact the MED9 ECU.

Hi Andrew,

*It’s definitely and MED9 ECU, all of the TFSI models still are (Golf R, Scirocco R, TTRS). The engine is still the S3, TTS, Leon Cupra engine whereas the newer generation engine found in the Golf Gti – 2.0TSI uses an MED17 ECU and the 3.0TSI engines from the S4/S5 use a Siemens ECU.

Edit: I thought the TTRS bit was a typo, but the 2.5TFSI also uses the MED9 lol.

When did you go m3 Bruce? Sold the gti?
Presumably you have all talked about this in the gm but as you know I'm not in there very much any more.
I desperately want an m4 so told my self jeep the gti till I can afford the upgrade.

Umm. I think almost a month now. Still have the GTI. Yep been talking about it since December but only really got serious about it around February or March. We miss you in chat.

I drove my friends F80 M3 and it's really nice. You should do it!

Got myself a blurple miata to drive to keep the miles off the MKV and allow me to tear it down to work on it for extended periods of time.
(if the paint looks crappy its just because of the morning dew)
