The export MK3 models built in Germany with the DCT (at least for Austrailia per one of our members on here unida767), has a mexican built DCT per the codes and labels shown on the outside of the gear case, with the same 2.0 L GDI engine built right here in Dearborn, Mi. So to say that they are even building any of them for Ford in Europe is a bit suspect until proven otherwise.
