I've hear conflicting stories about this one.  Mine is a 2001 with new badge,
has a build date of 10/00, which puts it right in the transition time.
I don't know whether I have the new turbos and oil lines or not, and I
haven't found a way to determine that visually without pulling anything
apart...  VAG-COM tells me I have a 'M' version ECU, but not sure if
that's indicative of anything.

If your build date is in 2001 then it's definitely a '01.5.
