    question about mkv GTI engine

    was this 2 litre turbo 200ps engine built specifically for the GTI? or did this engine exist in other vw/audi cars beforehand such as the A3 or A4or even the latest passat? and then vw decided that they may as well use it for the GTI? just wondered cos you see basically the same engine in...

    who competes with the modern 911 turbo?

    just been thinking about this. its easily as fast and powerful as a ferrari F430 or a lambo gallardo. but those cars look madly outrageous and arent everyday cars. but the 911 turbo is an everyday car as its quite economical, seats 4 people, has a decent sized boot, plenty of luxury equipment...

    heard GTI noise for first time

    although the GTI has been around in this country since 04, a few days ago i saw someone giving it the beans and it does make a wicked sound. i get the impression that most of the people who have a GTI couldnt give a fuck about the performance. most of them i see being driven by young mothers...

    american cars vs euro cars

    how come you guys didnt buy american cars? i mean they seem to be very well equipped. they have much bigger engines than the GTI, like 5 litre engines and you have a lot more space. probably a lot cheaper as well.

    muscle hatchbacks

    golf R32, audi S3, bmw 130i M sport. to me those cars are in a different league compared to cars like focus ST, civic type R. much bigger engines, more luxurious inside, no ricer image whatsoever. i think porsche need to make a car that competes with those 3 that i mentioned. that would be...

    cars that irritate you

    optional extras vs engine size

    ok lets say you were buying a high priced car such as an audi TT or a cayman. would you rather get the standard models (2 litre turbo) and then go to town on the options list. or would you get the higher engine size (3.2) but settle for no options. basically would you sacrifice performance...

    1.6FSI with 115hp

    thats the engine my courtesy car has with 2 extra doors. compared to the 1.4 75hp engine that i normally drive around, there are a few differences. at low revs the performance is pretty much the same as my 1.4. but when you push it beyond 3500revs, it really does go rather quick. its probably...

    a few cars i dont get the point of

    right, here are some cars that are one step below heaven: audi S4, audi S6, bmw 335i, bmw 550i, golf GT, porsche GT3. can you see the pattern? basically these cars are budget versions of the flagship models. for instance if you want an A4 with loads of power, why would you go for the S4 when...
