So my very much loved and trusted Mk 5 Golf GTi Pirelli edition was t-boned at an intersection and was written off, which I am totally gutted with. Not my fault by the way. I had the car for 10+ years and enjoyed it very much, maintenance was a bit high but well worth it for the enjoyment it gave me.
Now moving forward and hopefully upwards, I need to replace the Pirelli sadly. I don't want another GTI as I think I have outgrown the fun of a front wheel drive hot hatch.
So looking around I have settled on the above two choices Mk 7.5 Golf R and Audi S3. Now I know they are the same cars, platform, engine, chassis etc but they are quite different in their own right. In the second hand market they are both around the same price with the Golf R having slightly less km's and ever so slightly cheaper. I have considered the RS3 but sadly out of my budget.
I would like to hear from those who have been lucky to have both or driven both for feedback.
Thanks in advance guys.
