The FN2 looks like crap and performs like it too. The FD2 out performs it cough DBW rear susp. cough and looks better :)

And Tension, I think it's noticeably faster only because it has more data stored. However, it would come down to driver because while the GTI is slightly faster in the straights, I believe that the CTR will be better through the corners (braking, entry, speed, and exit) to make up for what is lost on the straights.

Maybe you should try the Golf and think twice about ''fenominal speed'' and ''fantastic looking car''
