      I agree, along with the worry about the water pumps.

      I also do not like the fact that the Golf R revs so high when cruising at 65 mph. My wife typically asks me if it is time to shift.

      I also...

      I love my 2008 R32. There is much about my Golf R that I hate.

      I would recommend that you drive the Golf R longer than a normal test drive.

      In the Golf R you are giving up the DSG, the VR6,...

      OK. I definitely miss the 6 cyl AND the DSG. The Golf R needs at least one more gear as it revs entirely too high at normal highway cruising speeds. My wife on more than one occasion has asked me...

      Looks aside (I prefer the looks of the 2-drs over the 4-drs), the door pillar on the 4-dr is right in my blind spot due to where I have to sit so I can reach the pedals.

      Fair enough. I'd recommend a MKV Golf/Rabbit as well. Those should be more in line with the target price.
