      I agree with Revolver. 4 is definitely the new 6. All of the German manufactures will have to bring out a model with a high performance 2.0 Lt turbo to compete with or better the AMG CLA / A45, looks...

      I'm with P.R.Walker on this. I think this will appear as a production model quicker than we think, not exactly as the concept, toned down somewhat, reduced power, hey wait a minute, that's beginning...
    4. Wishing for a VR6 will leave you dissapointed

      There is a lot of overthinking here I'm sorry to say.

      Fact 1. The Golf R Evo / RS will run a high output 2lt turbo at circa 375 hp.

      No one loves the VR6 more than me but its not going to...

      This is the main issue that a lot of forum members fail to understand, the GTi is not a hot hatch, its a mild hatch.

      If you want more power, you need to go with the hot hatch VW already has, which...

      I cant believe there are so many haters on this forum. We all happen to own and drive vehicles from the same manufacturer, and every vehicle in the line up is excellent.

      That said, I took my R in...

      Yeah, read the same article today. My calculation equates 290 HP to approx 216 KW, which is firmly into STi territory as far as engine performance goes, wrapped up in the refined VW interior and...

      Hey AsianDude,

      I have never driven a GTi (no offence to our GTi brothers out there, it just wasn't the car for me). All I can say is no way could you call this engine lazy. In fact, it made my Mk...
