They certainly tested it. Unfortunately they blurred the page on their website: http://www.autozeitung.de/aktuelles-heft/auto-zeitung-19-2013/IAA-NEUHEITEN-VW-GOLF-R/n402123/7?panorama=1

I am calling it correct since I don't feel like going to the Barnes & Noble bookstore to peruse the article directly.
