Yeah no, the golf isn't ugly, but it's sure not my taste, and for the price of the Golf R I would much rather just buy an STI.
The appeal of the ST for me is to get a kick butt hot hatch for mid-to-upper $20's (my guess is the ST will run between $26-28k, just over the MS3). A $33-35k VW Golf has absolutely zero appeal to me. Just my own personal opinions though.
Of course to be fair, I am sure there are a bunch of VW fanatics laughing at those Focus fanatics and asking why anyone would ever want a Focus
