I'm not a Fan of VW but if you are looking for a fast hot hatch with AWD and DSG you could also get a BMW M140 or Mercedes A45 but both are clearly more expensive
And S3 is the same. With the facelift they modified the AWD setup. S3 did 1.15.1 Hockenheim short acording to AMS. not bad... Golf R should be about the same.

Or for a similar price of 35k just get a Camaro SS which will blow the doors of any VDub, I don think am Raynor is badly priced, It's one of the only true hot hatch backs that still stick too it's roots, And a few extra is worth that too me.

They're both friggin nice but the Golf is faster in the real world and brakes better than the Civic. I don't know the world where a Civic R is half the price of a Golf R.
