Loved the GTI so much that I upgraded to a CPO 2016 R..............DSG :eek3:

So far, fucking love this thing. I was sold the minute I took it out for a spin. The power and trans in this thing are in perfect harmony. Already had tints and new tires. 1 owner car, guy traded it in for a red R :rofl:

Got a good deal, said fuck it.

I really expected to not like the trans but as soon as I put it in race mode, sold. And the lovely noises between shifts :wackit:

Def much smoother than the GTR. At least the two 09s I've driven previously.

Much better picture :wackit:. I've never driven or even been in a DSG car so I'm excited to see what it's about.

Im not positive, but I think that car has some sort of valved exhaust on it too.

Golf Rs are ridiculously priced. Almost 40k, no thanks. I did find a few for 35 or so but all out of state. I set a spending limit and the R just wasnt in my range nor did I see any true benefits...
Just lying to yourself ;) Can't wait to see you at twisty day.

I should have driven one. Changed my whole perspective :rofl:

And at the time, there wasn't shit for sale in IL. Being a CPO really helped convince me too.

Will she be ready for AB on 6/5? If you don't throw up on your first run out, you are doing better than [MENTION=340]Eagle[/MENTION] :rofl:

Awesome pick up Mook!

I love these things. Drove a six speed and lined it. Then I drove a DSG one and was very impressed. Absolute rocket. It was a basically a hatch version of my wife's BMW. I was just too cheap to justify a $40k price on a car for me.
