      Having owned mk1,mk4,and mk5 mk1 without a doubt.



      The other two were good cars, and I love driving my mk5 every day but it just doesn't compare.

      MK3 is my favorite. Has just enough modern creature comforts, but still light and simple enough to throw around and work on.

      Close second is the MK1, classic styling, still looks beautiful. MK6 is a sharp looking example with all of the power and comfort of the MK5.

      Honestly, I'd take a sedan over te rest of the Gen's. MK4 is bloated and honestly not attractive saving R32. MK5 looks too "anime" to me, and also all I ever see is bagged out, "stanced" MK5 junk. Mk2 looks like an overweight MK1, and thus does not hold a candle to MK1. (IMHO of course)

      Mk1 It's technically a GTI.

      How? I honestly think the MK2 and MK3's styling are far more removed than some of the other Gen's. In fact I always thought the MK3's took more styling cues from the Corrado than the MK2...




      obviously the first thing that pops out is the fogs/turns, but you can also see the resemblance in the fender flares, lower grille, hood lines, and roofline... just my $.02

      just for good measure the mk2...

      Yep, that's the current phase of the MKV scene. It is at the point where the baggers and stancers are all over the MKV. It's reached that almost-mature-scene phase.

      It will only get worse for the next 5 years and then the MK6 bagnstance scene will explode.

      The Mk 2 was tiny by today's standards, and slow. Especially the first two years felt really nice to drive. In absolute terms, I'm sure a current Yaris could take the Mk 2.

      Why my favorite? It's a simple, honest car from a bygone age.

      To me it looks like they just took the MK2 and made everything bubbly. I don't really think the MK3's look bad, but not as good as others. IMHO of course.

      Yessir. The MK2 will always be one of my favorite VW's. And hell, probably one of my favorite cars ever.

      MK3 GTI. I love the front and rear end. The dash still holds up against anything on the road. The massive cupholders (seat adjusters).

      I'd drive anything Mk1, 2, 3 and 5. I think the Mk4 front end looks awesome with the RS bumper but there's nothing you can do to fix that god awful rear end.

      You can pretty much take ALL the MK4,6,7 and throw them right in the toilet. Especially 6 & 7 (minus the JSW).

      Same here, but if you were to say golf mk2 vs jetta mk2, that would be a different story.

      I'm guessing you're more partial to Jettas? I am too, but I love me some Golf too.

      Love my mkv because it started everytime I turned the key also was my first car bought it brand new as a senior in HS. Car was fast stock and faster with a few cheap mods. The fsi is a great motor and always put a smile on my face. Love the mkvi style and speed. But can't get over a mk3. Now I own two mk3's but it seems that the mk3 was the last car to get so many options even tho most weren't available in the U.S but its a great car to mod up. All sorts of interiors available for it and also this

      Pretty neat to see two real harlequins side by side. I went over them with a fine tooth comb looking for a fake pattern but they are legit.

      It's simple, the original looks the best and I would say with MKV/MKVI close second for driving dynamics.
