    If it was R32 vs the STI it would be a really hard pick. Sure the GTR is legendary but it'd be used. For the same money you could get a brand new STI (which is every bit as capable as the GTR from the factory).

      For his cause, he tries to pick rarer cars and turn them into show cars. I would say the GTR is rare, but i wouldnt want to see it as a show queen, so i retract my previous statement.

        That STI is very nicely done.

          Stock motor though. I think he should have bought another sti, and swapped the parts on. This new R32 is pretty slow in comparison.

            Yeah, im kinda bummed with his choice of the R32, its slower than a standard 1.8 gti! Chas has a good piont of swapping the parts, i mean he was just getting started on that car, he shouldt have given up.

              hold on... there is no way the r32 gti is slower than a stock 1.8t gti. that thing is pushin over 240 hp, and torque closely following at bout 135ft/lbs, both much more than the turbo. its n/a, so theres no turbo lag, and there IS lag in that gti. the awd is the only thing that would make it slower than it could compared to the 1.8 other than it being about 3250 pounds. but i dont belive the r32 is slower. it doesnt seem to work out at all. ill check around.

                ok checked. the 1.8t 5sp- 6.5s 0-60
                r32 3.2 6sp- 6.2s 0-60
                and the r32 does about 150 when opened up. not as quick as the evo or sti...but it looks nicer and is a lot more luxurious than the other two IMO.

                  R32 0-60 6.1
                  1.8t 0-60 6.5

                  The GTI weighs in at 3035lbs while the r32 weighs over 3400. lets comepare to car in the same price range from japanese auto makers

                  350z 0-60 5.3
                  STI 0-60 4.9
                  EVO 0-60 5.2

                  Now, i know 0-60 isnt the most important, but it was a quick was to compare these cars. My personal choice would be between the 350z and evo.



                  The R32 may have moved on from its predecessor, the V6 4-Motion, but itís no Subaru Impreza WRX. Whereas the Japanese carís steering is razor sharp, responding instantly to minimal inputs from the driver, the Golf feels vague, particularly around the centre, and reluctant to change direction. Negotiate a fast series of S-bends, and you feel exhilarated in the Subaru, more a sense of relief in the VW. The latter carís shortcomings canít be excused on the grounds of a softer ride either Ė it doesnít have one, although this does at least ensure that body roll is more controlled than on the earlier Golf V6.

                        well i just read from 2 sources that the evo was 4.8 so i dont know. they said it was the 273 hp one, stock. so i dont know, plus most of the testers get different results. but its fast anyway.

                          Everything I've read puts the EVO's at around 5.0 and the wrx at about 4.9, but funny thing is the Evo is easier to drive and just a bit faster around the track, so they say.
