Mk7.5 r or skyline r32?

Serious question... I love my mk6 gti. Was thinking of getting a mk7.5 r with the dq500 dsg.. or should I run this f*ucker in the dirt and get a skyline r32 for a project car?

Imo skyline. You see mk7 Golf Rs more than anything else on the road.

if you have to ask, i think your mind is already made up

try the skyline then when you realize you made the wrong decision you can get a mk8

Your debate right now is between an MK7R vs R33 as a project? As a tuner, you should absolutely jump on the R33. And, the only reason why you shouldn't jump on the R33 is because you found a R34 at an even better price.

If you need someone to watch it for you I could always register it up here in Canada and baby sit her for you

Personally I have driven an r33, r34 and a heavily modified r32, none of them GTR's. Just the mid range RWD Turbo models. I liked them, but with the way prices are now going I dont think they are as worth the money as they used to be. A GTST/GTT for 10K or a GTR for 25 was a great price, but now that they are legal in the U.S. the prices are getting a little silly.

Personally, I'd take the Mk7.5. I don't have the space in my life for everything involved in owning a 30 year old car that was never sold here.
