      I chose a1 but really it's a toss up between it and the a2. The Rabbit is just so direct and primitive feeling, making it so fun to drive. The Golf is comfortable and more refined but still fun as hell to drive. Interior is excellent, too, that Recaro interior is just classic. If you asked me which I'd rather own it'd be the Rabbit, if you asked which I'd rather drive everyday as my only car it'd be the Golf. Or better yet, give me the interior and drivetrain out of a Golf put in a Rabbit and we'll call it a day.

      A3 is some sauce, never liked that chassis at all. The "mk2 with gland disease" comment is pretty on point, there. Interior's are 100% garbage, too. A4 looks good, especially 20th ae, nice interiors, good engines....sloppy fat chassis. A5 drives excellent, very tight despite it's weight, worst looking one ever made. A6 got the looks back and dialed in the a5, solid car. It can certainly be argued that the a1 and 2 are flinstone car grade compared to the a6 and that it's clearly the best one built from an objective, outside point of view but hell I love old cars and don't want or need 90% of the crap that's in the new ones so I'm biased. Those two old ones just had a personality to them I don't think modern cars can produce the same way.

      I mean, look at that.That is why the mk3 will ALWAYS be the nicest looking, and most fun iteration of the gti to own, that vr, the moonlight blue paint, the body just flows so nice, i am in LOVEThat car looks nicer than anything i have ever seen.

      thanks for posting my car
      You should be banned for making such a claim. I find it really annoying that this is an opinion based thread and you keep ramming this Mk3 nonsense down every bodies throat. No body cares that it is your favorite generation. The only people that do post in the Mk3 forums. Go there and preach to them.

      On a side note, that stupid Mk3 show car that is scraping the ground wouldn't even come close to a bone stock GT2 at the race track.

      Because its not a MK3

      You can slap a turbo on a MK3 VR for much cheaper than 50k and go beat up on P Cars.

      I know that. I am just saying, after the extensive cage work, most likely completely tubular EVERYTHING suspension related, hiem joints, brakes, engine and transmission setup, then the 50k figure makes more sense.

      I don't know about a 12 valve with a HX35 and some cheap coilovers though

      I never claimed NO Mk3 CAN EVER BEAT A PORSCHE.
      This thread isn't asking which GTi is your favorite after dumping 50,000 dollars into it?
      The red devil is cool FWIW
      Exactly. Someone out there will always have more HP than you.
