What a tool. According to them the Golf R is way too expensive for a Golf. He suggests picking a GTI instead

I have heard that a lot, but remember the competition over there is priced around 23-25K, compared to starting at 30K for the golf R. One word, SIROCCO

Honestly, if the only thing these reviews can find wrong is the price - who cares.

In Europe this car actually costs more (relatively) than it will here (most cars there cost more anyways).

Almost perfect, except for the price = perfect. At least in my eyes. A Bugatti veyron is perfect - but for a price. Hope my reasoning isn't flawed.

I did a search yesterday and the UK is one the cheapest countries for the Golf R in Europe so they don't have to complain IMO. Guess I just have a broader idea of the meaning too expensive for a Golf. They seem to forget all the stuff that this Golf R already has standard even compared to the GTI

What a knucklehead. More HP and AWD is just simply so right!

I disagree with the review.

If the following is any reference - I am really excited about the Golf R20!
