Heart pumping antifreeze as I stand here.
I voted mk3 because they hold a sentimental value to me. Although, the original owner said it was the worst car he ever took to the track in his life and that was the reason he sold it.
I get lots of looks and thumbs up from random people when i drive my car so i guess other people besides myself find mk3s nice.
Ive owned 2 mk1s and absolutly loved those cars. Just a great car overall weather you like vw or not.
My friend owned 4 mk2s and i thought they were slow and uncomfortable but that was with cheap coilovers.
I drove a few mk4s and liked them.
I also think my girlfriends mk5 drives and handles incredible.
And even though the corrado isnt a choice, i enjoyed driving and sitting shotgun in my brothers corrado but found the rear window hard to see out of.
this is oviously just my opinion and not fact

1987-1989 GTI 16V like this. My all time favorite GTI.
Also, you have an Audi, not a VW. After working at a VW dealer at the parts counter for many years, I've finally come up with a valid analogy. (We're VW only):
"You've seen those KFC/A&W combination restaurants?"
"So, if you saw an A&W stand alone, would you go in and try to order a 6pc KFC meal?"
Your Audi has its own interior, body, wiring harness, lights, etc.
You seem to be angry and immature to make a habit of coming into every VW thread in here just to bash VW. It's getting old, and I think you should seek help. The people here don't hate you for owning a Honda. We want you to get better so you can play well with others.

We get it, you LOVE the MK3. I like it as well, but not as much as the MK2, along with 127 other individuals that voted that way.
My favorite GTI in my favorite color...
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

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.
