      That said, the MKV and VI are the best cars despite their heft. Good power and torque, a completely new suspension, classy interiors, world-class safety, etc. I loves me some MKI-MKIII, but the "best" car are the newer ones.
      best is the mk3, enough new creature comforts, perfect styling,yet old enough to cateur to us elders

      The VR is the equivilant of having a 400lb asthmatic crooner strapped to your front bumper.

      The only thing its good for is the sound.

      Seriously though the Mk3 Vr6 was decent however the Mk4 (non-R) was the worse generation ever made.

      Well having said that if you want to cruiser car and you aren't concerned with handling or steering feel the MK4 is ok I guess.

      IMO the GTI was supposed to be fun, simple, light on its feet, economical and tossable.

      Not a GT lux car.

      Thats where the MK4 lost its way imo.

      high reving 16V is what the GTI is about!

      MK2 FTW!

      Although I've never owned a GTI myself I've been around them, and driven every model modified, and stock street, and track including MKVI's. I would have to say the most fun to drive would have to be a MKI the power to weight ratio was perfect the suspension was fantastic, and the the seat of pants dyno felt like the car had much more power than it actually had.

      The second best would be a MKIV 1.8t 6spd for me. These cars are extremely tunable, and respond well to any mod thrown at them being the same mechanical make-up my GLI never gave me one single issue man I miss that car.

      Having owned a BT 2000 GTI 1.8T and a 20th AE (I am not a MK4 hater) IMO the 2.0T trumps the 1.8T.

      A Stage 2 - 2.0T would make more power than a K04 powered 1.8T with less lag.

      Even chipped the 1.8T didn't throw down much power. I also remember a bunch of failed turbos on 1.8T chipped cars compared to the 2.0T.

      It's not a GTI, it's a R32.

      It was in the US.

      It was before and right around the introduction of the 1.8T.

      iirc 99-00

      I owned a 84 GTi White/blue interior and loved it. Couldn't pass on the FS sign when I drove past it. Bought it for $3k in '90, and drove it till the end of '95 when I started college. Someone broke in and stole the stero (and missed the $500 worth of amps and subs, small car syndrome i guess). Anyways, I remember that I always looked up to the '92 16V, but hear many 8v's making as much HP due to the weight differences. But a Mk2 righteously stanced, tucked, and cambered would beat out the MK1 on style, and not to mention the engine bay if cleaned up. Then the MK1 with carbs or ICB's would be awesome also. So then hey wth, let's toss in the MK3 VR6, never owned one, but I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers...

      I picked MK1's since they are simple, light, and tottally tunerable. Aftermarket hasn't given up, so there's a great fan base.

      Money no object: I'd go for the Golf24 (future GTi?)
