Apathy, You could get all these, for the same range of price in your country then the Golf R, Quality or not, there are alot of cars better and/or exciting, depending on what one is looking for. In my opinion, id prolly take either the BRZ or the 1LE, i dont see any other reason to choose the Golf for me.
"$34,195 VoklsWagen Golf R"
$36,035 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE
$34,695 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X MR
$34,295 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
$33,120 Nissan Z34 370Z FairLady Z
$33,095 Cadillac ATS 3.6
$30,900 Ford Mustang GT 5.0
$25,495 Subaru BRZ
$23,700 Ford Focus ST
The priced differ a bit in my country. Or you could even get the Lower models of each car which are $10,000 LESS, but it all depends on your style and needs, and if i had to guess, you would take either the Camaro or the Mustang, and i damn sure wouldnt blame you.
