VW envy

I let my friend cruise around in my focus today and he loves the car! He currently has a
Jetta Vr6 with any bolt on possible and he loved my car more than his....he wont trade tho.

LOL, I thought this was going to be about how YOU wanted a VW, not the other way around. VW's have really nice interiors, but I like the Focus better than a Jetta myself. I dunno if it's true but from what I've heard/read the Jetta's in particular seem to have plenty of little annoying problems like electrical malfunctions, premature part failures, etc., etc.

My ex and I had a VR6... that thing was the quickest little car!!!!! Seriously! That car was NOT in any way heavy. That thing flew! It was fun having it while we did... we traded it in for a Mercedes SLK (paid extra of course!!)

I just didn't like how it had NO ROOM.. I hated driving it!! Argh.

the R32 is nice, compare it to an RS it struggles.
it is aimed at a different demographic, the RS is a lot more nible and raw and aimed for the enthusiast
the R32 is more or a cruiser, a rapid one
it seriously quick car but it suffers from the VAG problem, wooden steering and not as much feel as there could be.
i have always liked the look of the R32, but like the RS more, hence that is what sits in my garage!
