What car did you almost get over the GTI.

What was everyone's choice before sealing in the deal. I personally wanted a speed3

closest was probably a WRX. with a used 335i a close second. and a used S4 a close 3rd. while dreaming of an STI.

r56 Mini. Chilli-Red w/ JCW bits. Still think about it.. I kept on convincing myself that the trunk was adequate enough for occasional rounds w/ my wife and son...and then i woke up.

New Golf R. Had one on order, but test drove a CPO'd 2011 Autobahn with only 10k miles that was $10,000 less than the R. I decided I couldn't justify that much for what was essentially just AWD. Yes the R has more than that, but lets face it, that's the big difference.

I wouldn't be surprised if my next car ends up being an R anyway.

2011 Honda Civic SI. All because the VW dealer would not budge on the pricing I wanted. Ended up going out of state and happy I did.

Forester XT, Tiguan 4motion, but the DSG is why I went with the GTI.

I was comparing MS3, MINI Countryman S All-4, and GTI.

GTI won with interior over MS3, and power over MINI. Plus it looks better than both of them. But, MINI awd was tempting.
