People pay $180,000 on bentleys. you could probably get the same luxury out of a 7 series nowadays. If all I wanted was a decent performance car that could also be a great DD then a golf r would be the choice. Albeit the evo/sti are healthy competition. But this thing will probably hold it's value a hell of a lot better. 04 r32's are among the best resale vehicles from the last decade mostly because of their rarity and their unique features.

Not putting down the car.. But the VW Golf R is a spiffed up VW Golf, no matter how you wanna put it. Also the thing about these cars, along with the Mazdaspeeds, they're not as highly sought after as STI's and Evo's. So you'll have one heck of a time trying to sell it.. I can only see people buying this car if they specifically wanted this exact car for whatever personal reasons.

I gotta side with the people saying for the R's 40k price tag, there are many better choices..

Bentley to BMW is a whole different comparison. Such a big price gap, not to mention the prestige. By your logic, why stop there? A Hyundai Sonata now has leather, heated seats, sunroof, back up cam, all the bells and whistles too.

Hey, to each his own. If no one is willing to shell out 40k for a Golf R, then VW wouldn't make a Golf R. It's just not how I would spend my 40k. In my opinion, there are many, many other cars that offer just about everything the Golf R offers at the same price point, if not less.

sti's and evos are spiffed up lancers and imprezas, all equally as boring cars as a stock golf, and perhaps even crappier feeling in base form. You can't get a new sti for less than 50k I don't think. Maybe I'm just justifying it because I'd prefer it, but the spiffed up (insert name here) I think is overused. Especially when its referring to a vehicle that has better seats, better engine, better drivetrain, better suspension, better wheels, etc.
Anyways as to not throw it off topic too much. This thing was on some forged fiskes with R comp tires. Looked so mean and fun.

OK, new for new what can you get for $40K that matches the Golf R for performance, quality of materials, and overall fit and finish?

New? I could get an Audi A4, A5, TT, BMW 1 series, 3 series, Infiniti G37, Lexus IS, Mazda RX-8, Mercedes-Benz C-class coupe, Mini Cooper S/JCW, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, Nissan 370Z, Subaru WRX, WRX STI. Almost all of which I would prefer to the Golf R.

40K can get a lot..dive into the world of 2-3 year old used cars and you can get a hell of a bang for your buck. Hell, even at 20K (for a late model used car) I could probably find something that equals the Golf R in terms of performance, quality of materials, and overall fit and finish.

I've bought a lot of used cars at an even lower price point, so I've learned to squeeze every dollar out of my 5-10K.

STI's and Evo's have the prestige of being core-hearted rally cars. A Golf does not. I'd compare the R to a Mazdaspeed. You'd only get those cars if you were a straight up VW or Mazda fan. If you're looking at amount of car per dollar, then kwy below has a whole line up of cars that would make more sense to get. Again, not saying it's a bad car.. and ultimately, to each their own.

You can't get a A5, TT, G37 for 40k
And for 40k you would be getting the slow, dog versions of A4, 1 series, 3 series, IS, C.
Get your facts straight.
And new to used is the stupidest argument ever.

At 40k, NEW, you're comparing a Golf R to RX-8, 370z, EVO, STI.
The RX-8 is slowest, not everyone wants a 5spd manual, which is all you get in the EVO (I'm assuming people looking to buy a sports car won't want a autotragic); which really leaves Golf R vs 370z vs STI. If you want awd, then its Golf R vs STI.
My best friend of 20 years has a STI, so I drive that a lot. And it is a horrible place to be in compared to a Golf R. So at the end of the day, if you're looking at a NEW 40k awd toy, you either go for max performance with an STI, or sacrifice some performance for quality and comfort with the Golf R. Personally, I'd still buy a STI, but the Golf R is a close second. And it's not a far stretch at all to see why someone would buy a Golf R.

LOL exactly right...40K for an A4 will get you leather seats and power windows lol. Welcome to the class of luxury you've always wanted...

For 40K you can just barely squeeze by in a new Accord Coupe V6 with Navi...That's about as nice as you will get imo. The Audi's and BMW's don't end up being a decent car until you get into the 45K + range and start getting actual features in the car.

Spotted in Abby today..couldn't whip out the camera quick enough to catch all of them.

White 458, dark purple Aston Martin Rapide, Black GT-R, red California. I don't know what they were doing in Abby at 8AM..



You can see the Rapide in my side mirror
