Polos have their place but most of the time I see them it's some IT nerd doing the bare minimum to appear like a functioning adult. Hard to shake the imagery of that.

e: Literally the only polo I've ever seen that I liked:

i think the ultimate metric is what would fuuma do, this is a good guideline

Stanley, is that an .:R32? icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

It definitely is an R32. Such a pity everyone is going small turbo engines these days. Last of a kind in a way.

Right. Because they are so 'ordinary' and ubiquitous, people think that makes them an easy-to-wear staple item. But actually it's quite rare to see them done well - and this would be in exactly the way you outline here.

+1 but I also like the tennis vibe - white lacoste or maybe even black lacoste polo, not worn too tight.

Eh, I always liked the 1.8T, and I'm quite happy with my TDI. It has plenty of torque, but gets 43 mpg on the highway. That said, I refused to test drive an R32 a while back because I thought I'd wind up liking my TDI less shog[1].gif

Im with this guy. Well, Im not really 'with this guy' with this guy but I am like totally agreeing with him.
Polos are more or less acceptable in so many situations that they can be the go to shirt for people who dont want to put any thought into what they are putting on. So now the image of polos seems to be a bunch of people who didnt put any care into what they wore that day.
I also agree that polos can look great when worn with care.

Regarding R32's do they actually handle any good?
If found most Mk4 VWs to be total pigs in the corners.
They sound great though.

"nothing wrong with small turbo engines though..."

Fast, torquey and economical. Sound boring though....

I drive a 2.0l turbo hot hatch so I should know.

I can't think of a more fun car to drive off the lot for under $30K than a GTI/TDI. Maybe a base model A3?

Besides, it's the obsession with large engines that makes the world think that hybrids are actually necessary.

True... Although, owning an Outback at one point made me dislike Subaru's AWD. I'm sure the WRX is a different ride, though.
