I like the VW's alot, but I have discovered that when cornering, it really is a drivers race.

I'd take a MS3 over a GTi. Ford had it right when the had the SVT, but those days are long gone.

Mini might have something to say about that. And, as we all know, Ford USED to have something to say about that until model year 2005...

Meanwhile, we're of course just talking about the USA market here, because I believe the EURO Focus ST kicks GTI butt.

But since when did VW ever sold that many GTI?

Focuses are best seller hatches, but VW isn't Focus 1- GTI 0.

Yeah it's pretty much the King if your talking new cars. At 250hp/263tq the new r32 is the "hottest hatch" on the U.S. market. Even the GTi kicks the crap out of the Cooper S. The new r32 gives the Mazda speed3
a run for it's money with the added bonuses of awd and a 6speed DSG. You can flame all you want, but it's true.

I don't think how many cars sold is really the issue here.
