It will be hard coming off an M3 to find something that excites me as much as it does - I think my top 3 choices right now are golf r, wrx and a evo but it's hard to look past a golf even if it is just a golf haha.
Realistically the STI does 0-100 in around 5 flat, maybe a little faster. Just adding a exhaust and tune would pull an extra 40kw of power to the wheels, and the torque would be immense. Never really heard of any problems from these new sti's ?

Should have a look at one. If the Golf-R is what your looking for then go ahead, however I reckon it's to much money for what it is.
