Well its possible.

VW busted the most stupidiest move in automotive history. They came out with standard GTI. Then because everyone bitched, they brought the 337 (slighty hyped version of the plain ol GTI) but it only came in Silver or Black! So the morons decided to bring the 20th Anniversary (same options as the 337 except different wheels) and came in a few more colors. Now before the next generation GTI/Jetta comes out, the idiots are bring the R32 (looks like a 20th with a bigger engine and 4motion and a gay bodykit) which will be priced near the STi or Evo.

I dont think any company has fucked themselves harder than VW. The funniest thing is the Phaeton... $80k! $80k for a VW.. they gotta be shitting people.

I think the rear suspension on the MX is a straight axel and not independant... although I could be wrong. Wonder how it will handle? Apparently the suspension calibrations on the 3 are as close to perfection as you can get!
