Golf R vs Mazdaspeed3

To be fully clear. I have a Z4, M3 and a 2.5L. I'm now selling the M3. If I'm going to drop money for another car, I want it to mount up to the cars I have. The Golf R is a very sexy car. But even with a tune it didn't stand a chance to the Mazdaspeed, which cost waaay less. I was disappointed. The R is a 40+ k sports car. Back when I had my 911 and G37 they were 300+HP stock. So yea Volkswagen I'm a little pissed with you.

I know I started this post with a race, which some didn't appreciate. I wasn't trying to piss on either car, I just wanted input. I want to know which car is better ( Handling, performance and so on). Period. This thread was for the mechanically inclined, who can see past seat comfort and rode noise

So I'll stick with my title. Golf R VS MazdaSpeed 3.


Original Post:

Golf R stage 1 vs Mazdaspeed 3 275hp.

So my friend drives a speed3. He talks so much about this 3 being able to beat anyone, 23-0. He took me on a drive with him to find a car to race (was bord). We didn't find any racers, because people were probably doing more important things with their life. So we gave up. 5-10 minutes later we found this sexy ass Golf R.

He pulled up to him and asked what he's running. The guy said fuck you kid, continue racing hondas (lol). He continued saying he was stage 1. Fast forward, we hit the freeway, Started in 3rd, and the Golf R was smoked my three cars.

Either my friend was a better driver or a stage 1 Golf R is not that fast. any input?

375hp? Entire time i was assuming the Ms3 was stock. If those claims are true, then i can see why the R lost.

I'm curious as to what all the MS3 has done to it.

Here is stage 1 with intake and 91 octane tune.

Doesnt sound like the R was racing then. That or dude can't drive. Check APR or Unitronic for idea of R stage 1 numbers.

I checked the site, it said 295hp/ 300tq. I was expecting him to loose (MS3). He told me he change the headers and exhaust. his car also feels really got damn light. Compared to my VW

I made 276WHP/318TQ with Cobb AP on 91 when I had the stock turbo in the speed with intake, inlet pipe, DP, and Autotech HPFP internals. Close to 90F out.


Who on MSF tuned his car? He did not make 275 on K04 with OTS map
