What are YOUR requirements in a car?What are people?s opinions on the R32 compared to the GTI, have a GTI at the moment but have an R32 on order. Think I am having second thoughts?
turbo cars will always be easily tuned... a chip, exhaust and filter can make a Gti upto 270bhp. No big deal, the drive train can handle that no problem.<o> </o><o> </o>It?s not too late to cancel, not even put a deposit down yet?. I don?t really do any long runs, its manly running round after work and weekends. <o></o><o> </o>So maybe 10k a year. The running cost anit really an issue, I don?t even mind the chrome grille, must admit the GTI does look a little better from the front. <o></o><o> </o>Well my requirements, I would have to say surefooted as you put it is high on my list, and I would have to say resale value? along with the normal stuff, looks and so on<o></o><o> </o>I have heard a few people say that a GTI would perform the say as a R32 once tuned?<o></o>
You'd be surprised how much grip it has in the wet for a FWD car, not in 4wd territory but as long as the wheels are straight you can use full throttle in first with no wheelspin, its also very hard to spin up 2nd out of wet corners with the traction control off. Its harder to wheel spin the Golf accidently than my old Polo GTI and it had almost 100bhp less !I would like to see a gti in the wet do a good 0-60 time.
