It's raining ....

... Golf R's !!!!

Looks like the market is about to be flooded ....

I've been keeping an eye on the prices of these, and all those cheap lease deal cars seem to be coming through .... some with next to no miles, and sub £20k .... very tempting ...

The only thing is I keep thinking E class convertible too ... which would be (apart from when roof down) more boring and cumbersome to own ...

Thoughts??

A lot of people think VWs are a bit dull - not me, I'm a fan, and loved my GTI.... yet the Golf R doesn't appeal that much. I haven't driven one, but I think it is because I perceive it as fast but too accomplished, where something a bit rougher around the edges is more attractive (M135i for one, but you may consider you've done the 1 Series thing!)

That and they are everywhere. I think I'd rather have a GTI still - they look better too.

Do people who lease them for a year or two look after them? I guess it is harder and harder now to find cherished examples, and those with a few desirable options on too. They would command more of a premium over your basic 3 door red R!

The other option is keep the M118i ... and either

A. Spend a few grand on a sportscars (Mx5 or the like)
B. Hire a sportscars for road trips like Cheddar Gorge

Any idea where you could hire the likes of an F type from ... and how much it'd be for a weekend ??

its a 118i M sport LK, come on, we've had this conversation Very Happy

i'm not a fan of the golf....i'm sure its wonderful and I expect even more so with that DSG box, but i just find them so boring.

although the rag top mercedes wont be as much fun to drive, it will give you more pleasure, especially through the 4mph streets of Lungdung where you cant use R-pace

Interesting ... different opinions ...

It's easier for my justifying changing the car for a convertible, and I feel it's time for something different.

Golf Rs are incredibly popular around here, although over the past few weeks, an abundance of BMW 420ds seem to have popped up!

I suppose the Golfs must be pretty damn good if so many people are prepared to pay that much/get into that much debt for them.

Or, you could keep the BMW until the new Audi RS3 comes out... 400bhp! Surprised

If I was forced into another German car, it would be a Mercedes all week long, and an estate at that. I loved my old E320 wagon. Noisy but reliable and comfy too. And hold a load?? Holy crap, it could beat George into submission all week long. Good on fuel too! Once got 47mpg on a run to Embra & back.
