I just went to the VW site and a new GTI is $23,9xx and the .:R is 33,9xx. And according to Edmunds The Focus ST starts @ 23,700. So any way you slice it the Ford is the better deal.
(The Ford site isn't as forthcoming with prices as they want you "build" the car you want and then get the price)

I just may need to consider one in a few years when I can afford a used one.

Oh and as far as HP, the Focus is right there with the .:R. The .:R being AWD likely has a little less at the wheels, but should handle better for the same reason.
