      You missed the point entirely. They were halo cars for their particular brands. VW knows how to make a halo car. The GTD is not one.

      Interesting that the former SRT motor is now available on the standard R/T. Makes me think SRT has something big up their sleeves.

      Lots of people around here commute that distance in cars like that. But then in LA a commute like that isn't abnormal (mine is that distance).

      What I can't figure out is if the article is saying the car will have the front LSD from the GTI as well as Haldex AWD or just Haldex.

      A diesel version of an economy car isn't a halo car. These are three halo cars VW has produced over the past decade:...

      Interesting to hear his take on why they didn't pursue a hybrid powertrain like Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche did. He has a point, but I think the real reason is that his little company is nowhere...

      Go price an A45 AMG (also with a 2.0T with Haldex) and then come back and say the Golf R is too expensive. It's cheaper than the S3 and the M235i as well.

      Got it for the 360. It's good, and fun, but not life changing the way that some reviews made it seem. It's a logical next step in FPS.

      The most telling part is the spectators. Look at the video from 2013.... half the spectators had serious hearing protection on because of the volume of the cars. In 2014 no one did.

      So it's news that the new, more powerful Beetle is faster than the now discontinued GTI?

      That's what the Mini JCW costs and I see a few of those around every week.

      What segment is that? As far as I can tell this segment didn't exist before this year with the sole exception of the horrible MB C Coupe from the early 2000s and the A3 hatch, both of which were...

      I'd bet that's more to do with how Audi tunes their cars than anything else. Audi tends to favor safe over dynamic. No one would call the Evo or STI anything but dynamic and both cars have 60 and 58%...

      Haven't the current S4, the Lancer Evolution, the STI, and yes, the GT-R, proven by now that with the right differential at the rear weight distribution is almost a non issue in making a car dynamic?

      I totally agree... and yet as a former owner of a MKIV GTI just like yours, I'd kill to have that car back again.

      By far the best the 7 series has looked since the E38.

      Because this is an entire class size smaller. The Q50 is a 3 series/C class/A4 competitor and none of those performance variants cost anywhere near $100k. If they wanted it to compete at that level...

      Wait, what? Please tell me you see the flaw in your logic here.

      The GTI is a totally different model with a different purpose. It's heritage has no bearing on the R models. And for the record, there has always been a 4 door R available literally everywhere but...

      Did you miss the part where they specifically said they only had the resources to develop one or the other because of the extensive calibrations that would change between the two cars?
