  • MKV R32 Vs. 8P A3 1.8T Quattro Vs. 8P A3 3.2 Quattro

    Hey guys, I'm considering selling my MK4 GTI (Stage 2 tune, coilovers, FMIC etc.) and replacing it with one of 3 options:

    MKV R32 (184kW, 1530 kg)
    8P A3 2.0T Quattro (147kW, 1565 kg)
    MKVI GTI (155kW, 1380 kg)

    My preference is easily with the AWD cars, as I've got a FWD now and would like to try something different.
    There's a good chance I'm going to modify the car, and output wise, it looks like the R32 and A3 would end up at a similar power range with a stage 2 tune (about 200kW).
    The MKVI can make about 220kW on a stage 2 though.

    Would prefer a manual, but will not be unhappy with a DSG.

    What's everyone's thoughts?
    What would you choose and why?
    And if you've got any experience with any of them, what was it like to drive?

    Appreciate any responses.

    Some rather cool and interesting options there, purely from looks I’d choose the Mk6 Golf. Could you afford/find a Mk6 Golf R, instead of the GTi?
