Ideal would be something already with a DSG. I was even toying with a VW Caddy as they are cheap. Wife not overly keen having a van on the drive :-)

    So not too old, maybe 10 years max.
    A Caddy would be a pretty good option in the UK. Very usable, but able to be made to go fast! I always like 4WD in sleepers, but that's a major undertaking in a powerful caddy. There is an R32 Caddy for sale on Caddy2K.com you could turbo or supercharge it :-) DOC on there is also putting a late model 2.0 TFSI into his.

    There are some pretty rapid diesels in the UK too, and quite a bit of support and knowledge.

    However, a 5 cylinder turbo Caddy would be rapid AND sound good :-)

    Caddy has been ruled out. Although it would be cool, wife says no way :-)

    I was just looking at a Mk5 Golf GTI. How much effort would it take to fit a turbo, or would it be better to get a turbo version and upgrade with remap and better exhaust ?

    Or ... a Tiguan with DSG. I used to own one without DSG. Looks like an old mans car but is effectively a golf. If it was a high line most of the modules would or should allow a refit for mfsw etc
