40 / M
60 yo male. VW was one of my first cars. Bought one of the first Sciroccos available in NJ in the 70s. Have owned a lot of cars since, with Porsche being my favorite. Came back to VW after selling my Cayman S for an 04 R32 with a lot of great mods. Then bought the R recently when I realized it was more of what I wanted than anything else on the market for the money. With a few mods, these cars hold their own with anything out there. I drove a new M3 before buying this, but honestly, now that I have the HPA tune and DP, I can't say that the M3 was significantly more fun to drive...or nicer. Especially when you consider the fact that it cost twice as much!
Current - 2012 Golf R, 4 door. SR, NAV, loaded. Deep Black Metallic. HPA Stage 1 Tune, HPA Downpipe w/ cat, HPA Core Interlock Lower Motor mount-75 Red.
Previous - 2004 R32, 2007 Cayman S, 1988 930, 2001 Z06, 2004 STi, 2004 GTO, 1974 DeTomaso Pantera L, 1974 Lotus Europa TC, 1972 911S Targa...
I must admit I'm kind of surprised though. I thought there would be more in this range.
But let me say that I'm paying on my own for everything before the older guys start the spoiled this and that talk
