      To be fair, I imagine it costs them a LOT less money to build a super-limited production side project (that shares many of its parts with another vehicle) than to build an entirely new...

      i really hope these aren't priced more than $1k or so above a comparably spec'd 5-dr mini cooper. *fingers crossed*

      okay. how about:

      let me reiterate this. $31k for a pre-owned mk6 golf r is NOT a great deal! these things were selling for $33k when they were brand-spanking-new and just sitting on dealer lots (i...

      i clearly typed $30k or lower, meaning $30k should be the max you pay for a mk6 golf r, regardless of its condition. obviously lower is better.

      $31k for a used mk6 golf r is too much considering that you can get a new all-around better mk7 golf r for like $5-6k more. unless you absolutely need an awd golf with stick shift at this very...

      When MKVI Golf Rs were sitting on dealer lots for months, they were selling for $33-34k new. No one in their right mind should be paying $30k for a used one, especially when a comparably equipped MK7...

      i wouldn't install the wing myself but don't think it looks awful. i do love the wheels, though. they look like the wheels on the nissan gtr black edition. are those 18s?

      i'm no expert, but i'm highly skeptical about a 80 hp bump between generations. base hp in the gti went up like...60 hp in 4 generations (mkiv to mkvii)? I could MAYBE see this happening for a...

      They have a new CUV slotted below the tiguan in size and price set to be released within a year or two. I think it's called the Taigun?

      Increasing the Tiguan's size makes perfect sense. It's...

      I'd be more than happy to cross-shop the wrx with the golf r if it: 1) was available as a hatchback, and 2) came with a dual-clutch transmission. until then, it is unfortunately far off my radar.

      very interesting. a few thoughts/questions:

      - What happened to the rumors of a 2.0T base engine? it seems odd to have a 400hp base unless they can price it similarly to the base-spec 3, A5, ATS,...

      This response seems to make the most sense. For the MKV golf, models with navigation had their CD changer placed under the center armrest. You could still lift the armrest (to access the cd changer)...

      The RS is undoubtedly a compelling package, but I told myself (and my wife) that my next daily would have an automatic transmission. So unless Ford plans on making an RS with an auto, I'm going with...

      eh, we'll have to wait and see about that. when the focus st was released a few years ago, it was supposed to be best in class, on paper at least. yet, in most tests it was outperformed by the msp3...

      yup. pretty sure the golf r was "at least 290hp" for quite some time too. 315hp is an impressive number for a hot hatch, no matter how one spins it. no dual-clutch option makes it a harder sell,...

      as a second vehicle, i would go with the Z hands down. it's lighter, faster, and has a naturally aspirated v6. and if you're willing, you can always go the CPO route and get one for under $30k.
