I think you're correct. However, and while I can't find the supporting info at the moment, I believe the USDM 335d was nothing more than the EU 330d, which did have an available 6 speed.

I really liked my MK6 Golf TDI with 6MT. Felt like the perfect daily driver to me. A Sportwagen would have been nice too. Surprisingly grippy, yet quite comfortable. The only part lacking was the throttle response, but that can be fixed with a chip tune if you don't have to worry about emissions tests.

I averaged between 45-55 mpg depending on time of the year (temperature matters), and how much of a jackass I was while driving. Even if I drove like a maniac, I still never got less than 40mpg. Same drive in my E36 M3 gets less than 24mpg...


Too bad about the whole scandal though, ended up selling mine back, and using the money for an E30 touring. I think the MK7 though has a viable fix.
