@ Amanda: Must be nice to drive on a road with no speed limit, probable saves time when you're running late for work, I live in Georgia, in the southeastern U.S. The fastest I can normally legally go is 65 MPH. Sometimes I'll do 80 when I'm running late for work.

I love a Golf GTI, when someone says hot hatchback, that's the first car to pop into my head, awesome car, heck of a sleeper.
@ Amanda: You have a pretty sweet little car, but where do you drive your car at 145 MPH?

You have to take the results with a grain of salt. Obviously from all the other track times, you can tell the MK5 is faster, it's just that one Ring time that messes things up. Look at the track times and acceleration times, don't look at the points, the points system is crap.

I like the concept of this site but there are a lot of glitches in it. Too many inaccuracies. How can the mkiv have a 16.2 qtr mi and beat a mi 5 on the ring but nothing else????

Because of big advantage Mk4 has in Nordschleife.

There\'s a mistake in the calculation of points:

MK5 wins 3 to 1 in track times over Mk4
So how come Mk5 has 28pts and Mk4 60pts??
