That statement "golf is much better" needs some qualification.
Are VWs as reliable? NO
Are VW's better to look at than a Type R? NO. Type R can look like it does and YET I've transported a bath inside with hatch CLOSED.
Are VW's better value?

Just plumped for RS III after 3 brilliant years with Type R in black. There's a CHAMP WHITE 11 reg at £16495 on autotrader. That has LSD and looks awesome. All the "Mugens" for sale are basically like this but at £3K to £4K more!!Try and buy the slower Golf at that price. Remember Honda is the MOST RELIABLE BRAND.
