post #74056 of 117670

Holla... Posting pix in a bit, stupid meetings slowing me down. 

 

BTW, not under $30K but I'll take my Evo MR over any R32, GTi, or WRX

A WRX is an ugly car though.. they age horribly too... Maybe I'm biased, but I think VW's have lasting appeal. I did own a 1.8T GTI with tiptronic.. completely fucked after 140xxxkm. Sold it for scrap.

I owned a GLI 1.8T with tiptronic for one weekend. That's how long it took me to realize that that transmission just doesn't work with a turbo. 140K is not that many miles. maybe you wrecked the transmission? wink.gif

I can't think of a less exciting hot hatch than a Golf GTI tbh...probably the tamest of the bunch atm. 200hp just doesn't cut it anymore and the ride/handling is pretty soft. Each new model seems to get further away from the founding idea of the badge.

haha ok sorry to derail thread but wrx's look fantastic, especially the hatch. and I don't know what world you live in where german cars are more reliable than japanese cars...

Maybe not more reliable, but much better engineered smile.gif

Are you used to driving a Lotus or something, sexonfabric? My TDI is the best handling car I've owned. Granted, those who truly care about performance usually swap out the suspension first...
post #74063 of 117670
Not at all, I have a Renault Megane RS265 at the minute which would wipe the floor handling wise with the Golf R let alone the GTI. The GTI is pretty tame compared to the likes of the Ford Focus RS or the Vauxhall Astra VXR even (I don't even know if you get these cars in America...certainly not the Renault). It's kind of the car you get once you have kids, but still want to have a bit of fun. If you are into such things you will see it is easily beaten in all sorts of tests against it's main rivals (here in Europe). It does have the best build quality though and nicest interior.

that being said if i were to buy any car right now (sort of) in that price range it would be a 135i...
post #74065 of 117670
Yeah, I'm changing car in the next few months and have been looking at the 135. Think I'm going to get a Mercedes SLK though...fancy a roadster before I have any real commitments.
post #74066 of 117670
No wonder, sof, you are comparing to cars not available in the US. Plus, I do have a kid and still want to have fun wink.gif

My first two cars were Renault 5s icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif The '78 was a much better build than the '82- I used to take it off-roading.
post #74067 of 117670
Hahaha I wasn't sure what cars you guys got over there. Can't believe a Golf GTI starts at 24k...they are £30,000 here (so about 40k your money).

Golf GTI fills that need perfectly. And the inside is a lovely place to be.
post #74068 of 117670
It's pretty sad that we don't get many of the smaller performance cars over here. I realize I left out the Mini Cooper S, but I consider it more of a novelty (with bad torque steer).

Anyway, sorry for derailing this thread.

A polo is a staple in every man's wardrobe.
