Yep, I noted that it was a DSG in my post. Not sure if C&D has times for a manual GTI, I didn't look too hard. But in any case, lining up an ST and a DSG GTI will result in a very close race, even with the power advantage that the ST has.

I also would like to reserve judgement until C&D properly tests an ST. They always seem to get good 0-60 and 1/4 mile times, better than most car mags anyway.
