I was considering the MS3. My real decision was whether or not to buy a cheaper used car and keep my truck (Nissan Titan) or buy a new car. Once I realized I had interest in the truck for $500 less the amount I bought it for 2 years and 35k miles ago I decided to sell it and buy the GTI. In retrospect I wish I bought a 4-dr and I wish I considered the TDI. I do love my GTI, so I'm happy. I'll be even more happy after the payments are finished...

WRX & GC V6

WRX's weren't being built at the time due to the tsunami and the GC's were stopped being imported because there was such low demand of them where I live. I had no choice really.

It started with an 06 TJ sport 6 speed..the dealer wouldn't drop the price so I was going to go for a Gennie coup, but since I wanted a hauler Mazda 3 and GTI were next.. I made the best mistake of test driving the GTI first.. and fell in love!

BMW 135i with 400whp, but it had 20k more miles so I obviously chose the GTI.

For all those who were looking at the GenCoupe, be glad you didn't. I work at Hyundai, and I'll be the first to say they're P['s]OS. Slow as balls, even the V6 feels weak. The 2.0T falls flat on it's face in...well the entire RPM range.

I shopped against these:
Nissan Juke
Mini Cooper S hardtop
Had an eye on the Veloster development but the turbo was too far out
Same deal with FT-86
WRX
Genesis Coupe
Mitsubishi Lancer
Kia Forte SX 5 door or coupe

but in the end it came out to a grudge match between the Mini and the GTI and the GTI won.

Was ready to sign the papers on a Xterra, but the dealership suddenly withdrew their offer. Oh well.
