      Some interesting data by C&D, there is no doubt that the GTI is the better engineered car and its composure at least in the MK5 skin is something I can attest to. I like what Ford did with the Focus...

      I really dont see a compelling reason to upgrade from a MK6 to the NA MK7 either. The torque number is impressive and the new diff is aweinspiring but;

      That makes some sense and I do hope it turns out that the North American version has a lower gear ratio for sixth gear. An extra tall top gear will kill the sensation of speed and responsiveness of...
