You've got $15,000 to spend.
What car would you pick as an all around daily driver/weekend toy/possible odd lapping day?
Summer driven only.
2001 Golf TDI
2004 Passat 1.8T
1990 Golf ABA Turbo -SOLD
Tough choice. I have always wanted an S2000, but it's not very practical. If you had another vehicle I guess the S would be nice to have. Always liked the R as well. Ok, S2000 it is becasue you said "weekend vehicle".

Having owned both an R32 and an S2000, the car enthusiast in me will tell you S2000. It's such a drivers car. However, given that one of your requirements include "daily driver", I would have to say the R32. I could not even fit a boxed iMac in the S2000. Unless you'll have a daily, I would go with the R32.
s2K. all day, every day... 2x on Sundays.
PS: don't let em tell you that you can't daily an S2k. I daily an NB Miata. I'm a bigger guy. I've hauled everything from two tires for my truck, to a few 8 foot sticks of 2x4's... with the top down, of course.

I wouldn't choose the R32 just because people type out crap like .:R32 without a hint of irony.
Gimme the S2000. The sterling reliability, top down ability and amazing fun to drive factor are just icing on the cake.

It loses out to the s2k (does that one bothe:r you too?) by most standa:rds but they a:re awesome little ca:rs. My nephew has one, and I get a little jealous eve:ry time I go ove:r my b:rothe:r's house.
Methinks you're butthurt than the 2 are actually kinda close. Don't sweat it, the Honda's probably going to win. It'll be ok.

On a moRe seRious note, the S2000 is a veRy livable daily dRiver caR. Unless you aRe fat, you'll be just fine. And to those complaining about stoRage space: unless you haul cRap to and fRom woRk eveRy day, you have no need foR ample tRunk space. And if that's the case with youR daily gRind, you wouldn't be looking at EITHER of these caRs to begin with.
