Not sure how that proves Keith wrong, he doesn't say that they are made there, just how to de-code the VIN.

Neaty's question is, GTI's sold in Korea, where are they made?

From this https://www.volkswagenag.com/en/group/portrait-and-production-plants.html I'm going to guess at China.

Thanks for that. Yeah, looks like VWs that are sold in this part of the world are built in China. I knew they weren't built here as, if they were, Korea would make more of a deal out of it.

I wonder what the build quality is like at the plants in China.

The mk6 was built in Germany, China, Belgium, Indonesia, South Africa and maybe even Ukraine according to Wikipedia. Maybe some even in Mexiko (estates).

As said before the VIN will tell you the specific location.
