    • Weird? K swap that lotus and it will be faster then a k swap mr2, an you aussies know what they run at the air strip. Plus the billet k series engine is only $6500 (1700hp). Billet 2jz 30k(3k hp), 4g63 is 20k(1800hp), MMR does a coyote v8 for new mustangs 10 or $12,000 and makes 3500hp. Ppg 6 speed gear set rsx manual trans for the billet k is 4-6,000. A sequential for the k is over 10k. My dream car is that setup in a Honda NSX. They are finally cheap at the Asian auction sites

    • Guys and gals when you're guessing try to remember he said RWD, no back seats, completely impractical and a bit weird. Most of the guesses don't even fit that criteria. Think along the lines of a Lotus Elise/Exige, MRS, Atom, TK ZZ2, Mclaren 12c or anything inbetween. Also remember he can probably afford an expensive car but thats not necessarily what he likes so it could be pretty much anything. Maybe even an old Porsche spider or GT3 - who knows?

  • The Golf is objectively speaking one of the best cars in the entire world, it does everything well with few drawbacks however that’s why it makes the cardinal sin of being utterly boring. It’s a jack of all trades, master of nothing which makes for a very uninspiring vehicle.

  • I had a GTI because of Moog and Jason Camisa. After the second time the engine blew up, I traded it in for an ILX. The weird thing is, I didn't even drive it hard, mostly just commuting, I'd send it on a freeway on ramp maybe once a month. Loved that car when it was working right, but if a car is going to repeatedly need major work, it needs to have more soul. Congratulations on the Lotus.

  • Probably won't get read, but probably one of the saddest days. I'm a huge VW enthusiast and the VW community alone is way bigger than most and most VW's are actual head turners from vintage to modern VW's. I've followed you for 10 yrs or longer and thought it was cool on different sides of the planet and yet you rock a VW. I'm sure you'll be back in another one. so I'm sure it's not the end of the world.

You ever watch someone drive by in the most clapped out 370 or whatever, they’re smiling because they love it. Through all the speed bumps and uneven roads, the break fix and repeat keeps us alive.

  • Moog, I gotta be honest with you. And it might have something to do with the fact that I live in Germany. Even though your Golf can go to 100 in less than 3 seconds, I personally still think that it's a dull car. As you said, it lacks personality, which does make it dull for me. The Golf is just...too good, for a lack of a better word. It's too well balanced, too practical, too precise. Too "Golf". And the strange thing is, that the old Golfs, up to and including Mk4, were not as Golf as all the current ones are.

  • Yeah, I think it's the same issue for most Volkswagen owners. After finishing their cars they just got bored and eventually got rid of it. A lot of my Volkswagen friends had turn into Miatas, F30s, F32s, or a Porsche. I'm still a proud owner of a MK7 Golf. Far from finished project and unlike in Australia, parts are really expensive here..

  • I totally get it. I'm a huge VW fanboi, and have been for 20 years. I have a MKV GTI daily, and I love it- it replaced a MKIV TDI Beetle (with a lot of mods!) that got totaled in an accident. But I am fixing the Beetle and will sell the GTI. The reason is that the GTI really lacks that "X-factor" that the Beetle has. The MKVI and VII GTI and Golf R are lacking that X-factor even more than the MKV's even though they are really, really good cars. I had a VR6 Corrado that was full of X-factor even though it wasn't a great car... and my MKI Scirocco is basically nothing but X-factor..... I'd love to be able to afford a Golf R, and I might have one someday but I don't think you need to explain any further than you did because most VW people would probably understand. It's sort of like what Clarkson said when he reviewed the Fiat 500 Abarth- it was "too good" and didn't have any of the zanyness of cars with the Abarth badge in the past and James said "So what you are saying is, it would be better, if it was worse?" And Clarkson said "Yes."

  • Basically what happened is the car was finished. It already had basically everything except being supercar fast, and then you made it supercar fast. It is now peak Golf, essentially perfect. Yes you could make it have 1000hp but then it wouldn't be reliable and the price/performance would be gone, and it would be less streetable. All it means when this happens is that the owner is a tinkerer and not someone who just wants a thing, and then gets it and is content. It's not like some sort of insult to the thing you're getting rid of, you simply have to keep yourself busy. It's not something you should feel like you need to explain or apologize for.
