I'm not sure why anyone would want an ST. Those things are slow as hell and not that nice.

RS is just an overpriced ST in my opinion. Golf R is a much better choice over the RS but I guess I'm biased. But seriously... Golf R is so much nicer inside and out and.... not overpriced...

Same thing is going to happen with the civic type R. It might be nice but its going to be so over priced no one will buy it. Only the people that need to have it day 1 will have it. Other than that... no one is paying $40k+ for a front wheel drive car or even a awd "hot hatch".

Yeah the interior of the RS leaves A LOT to be desired....

The Type R is hideous imo, but such is a japanese car, they make it look FnF and all because the buyers of that car want that look.

If you went on cars.com when the RS first hit the market... dealers had them listed for $40k+. That dealership markup

RS is a hell of a lot faster than any St I've run

The RS looks way better imo. Just the paint options alone are fantastic

They are fast no question. I'd be willing to bet a lot of k04 cars would be dead even

I'm stage 1 with an intake, I'm not unrealistic about my car, I'd still like to run an RS modded or stock to see how I stack up. Just curious. I've been seeing them a lot lately on the road, just haven't had that opp yet.

Was cruising down the express lanes and had an a5 or a6 (idk really some audi tbh lol ) tailing me and could tell he wanted to get around me put couldn't because of other cars.. As soon as he could I let him then immediately started tailing him to let him know it was on.. As soon as I had open lane beside him we both floored it (70 roll) lol.. I let off around 130.. Pretty priceless going by him like nothing.. He was probably expecting to stomp a poor little gti
