The engine will look the same.
Does it say anywhere the kW output?
Model summary inside the door or engine?

Comfortline and Sportline are the only ranges with the TSI as an option.
Unlike the UK, the DE version offers the 140 and 170 in both of the higher specs.
If it does not have front fog lights then it is the comfortline, if there are front fog lights, could be either. This however does not help with enfine size

Only other idea is phone the chasis/model/unique ID number (http://www.volkswagen.de/vwcms_publish/vwcms/master_public/brand_portal/de30/customers/myvolkswagen/mein_auto.pc_page.htx)into VW.
Or Join the German Mein "Auto" bit with the number, and see if it tells you what it is?

Good luck.

125kW is the 170 (the 140 is 103).
If it has fog lights then it is either the sportline or the confortline with foglights specified as an extra. My bet is the sportline but then again, I dunno.

Do you mind if I ask how much you are saving by importing?
Have you gone to a broker yet?

From your post, I'm now not sure whether you have or are about to buy this car?

i`ve a friend imports used german cars and sell it in france and he bring me my
current vechle Operl vectra B 2003 1.8 cdx
From 3weaks i decided to buy THE NEW JETTA 1.4 tsi as i like to own that
strange technique "1.4 give 170 hP the thing that i thought it is a jock:p"

so i called him to search 4 a used jetta 1.4 2007, i trusted him but i tends to ask some pals as i am not a prof. in that field

the costs, i will pay a bout 21.000 Euro for all costs may be little more
-milage = 6000 km-

do u think it is expensive???

New, you would be looking at about, 26,000 to 28,000 Euros at list price for the Sportline TSI 170. 21,000 sounds like a goodish dealer price, even better if all shipping and transfer fees are included.

Good luck, hope it turns out well.

With myself buying a Golf TSI 140, I may brush up on my german, may come in handy by the looks.
