I spend a good amount of time in the New Buffalo/Sawyer area and rarely see any VWs other than Jettas and the occasional Passat. This past summer I drove up Red Arrow through St. Joe and Benton Harbor and holy shit was Benton Harbor a depressed town.
I'm heading over to MI on Saturday and will definitely be drinking beers at Greenbush on Saturday night. Their beers are delicious.

Several aspects cause this IMHO. One is the type of people that own the car and next is the forum. As for the car that's why I didn't buy an SI, STI, WRX, MS3, or 335i. The owners tend to be very snobby and stuck up. Even owning the modest GTI forums like Vortex will roast newbs and eat em for breakfast.

The driver of the MS3 seems like a cool guy though. I read through their forum as well and didn't get the opinion that he was a weenie at all and would be fun to talk cars with.

I will admit that I looked into buying a MS3 until I sat in and drove one. Yes, it was very fast but everything was so plastic-ish and the fit and finish were so blah and cheap feeling. I have buddies who drive WRX's and MS3's that both commented on the solidity and "bank vault" feeling of my GTI and both said they wished their cars felt the the same.

To each his own though. I will always respect the speed of the MS3 and it's refreshing to hear he was cool enough to stop and chat for a while.

The reality is while a majority of owners may act a certain way there are always exceptions to it.

I wish that the WRX had DSG and the interior of a GTI. It would have been the most perfect car ever.

100% with you on that one. The day Subaru comes out with a Dual Clutch setup on the WRX/STI I will buy it. I had a 4EAT(auto subbie transmission) in my Saab(aru) 9-2x AERO and it was the worst transmission I have ever driven. It felt like it had a 35% drivetrain loss compared to driving a 5 speed WRX/9-2x. Even tuned I couldnt keep up with a stock 5 speed.

The new wrx, while it wont come with a dsg type tranny it is going to have a lot better interior than the current model

Though mk6 forums are usually tame, we have a few around here.

Yep, he was a decent guy. His car walked all over mine and he didn't boast about it.

I considered the ms3 for a while - in fact it might have gotten me into the hot hatch category in the beginning, being the disrupt in the competition it was. In the end, I couldn't pass up the GTI's interior and overall refinement. Power would come in time, and it will...

Lol. Don't ever go into MSF asking about cosmetic mods. They are all power all the time over there. As a result, it is a place that is totally inhospitable to newbs, but has also been the catalyst for a huge amount of technical advancement for that platform. I wish such a place existed in the GTI community, instead we all wait around for APR to do the work for us.
