Then 2017 golf R I heard will have the new VW stage 2 upgrade package straight from the factory at about 370bhp. so next year the golf r will be even faster than it is now, I would bet it will be pushing 430 BHP by the time stage 3 comes out.

why has this car got four exhaust pipes, I am very snobby when it comes to exhaust pipes. good day to you all

Yeah I know that's what I was referring to. The EVO which was more thirsty than a V12 lambo needed a complete engine rebuild every 15000miles.

Of course technology has improved heaps but as an every day car 400+ hp from 2 liters is asking for reliability trouble

And isn't the TT rs a 2.5l 5 cylinder?

Saxy evo have run 400bhp rfom factory years ago and new golf 400 R comes out soon with 420bhp and new audi TT RS is 430bhp from 2.0litre

Sorry piggy back ECU gives golf r 390bhp spell checker changed it


User avatar

saxy  2y  

come again?


User avatar

In UK it cost £250 to have piggy back ECU fitted to golf R and gives it 300bhp 0-100 in 9 seconds yiu could never mod a student or evo that cheaply and won't effect warranty! Also I'd half teh price to tax and is quicker on track than megane 265 trophy. See lap times I have owned a megane R26. Handle well but crap build quality and don't compare to vw. If stripped seat out golf and used sticker tire probably keep up with megnbe 275 trophy as is already quicker than megane 275 (none trophy)

You seems to be pretty fire up with latest tests. Im quite glad too ;) It took VW over 25 yers to catch up the old Suby STI...

And I was talking about Lancer EVO X AWD system not about Subaru symetrical AWD, which is better imo than even new Haldex or Subaru one.

As to the results:
I think the weakest point in STI is the engine, it was avesome good few years ago, and now it lack of low rev torque.
Also manual drive can be pretty fun, but in terms of performance its time for 6/7 speeds DCTs.

But i think even not too much improved STI will have its fans, its more hardcore rally car, with close ratio gearbox and stiff suspension.

Impreza WRX is imo little better everyday model, and much cheaper than both.

Would be great car with better AWD system, those lastest versions of Haldex arent bad, but they are no match for those multi diff's Evo SH-AWD .

because it is no match the new Golf R COMPLETELY toasted the 2015 WRX STI at the latest Motortrend compare...forward backwards sidewas... look at Laguna Seca laptimes driven same day same race driver

Owning a Golf R in Chicago. in two years 1 new rim, three rims straightened. 4 tires replaced due to road hazards. Poor Design engineering choice for road use. Chicago does have bad roads.
