So he bought one !!

This one

I understand the man maths of it .... he lives in the middle of nowhere, so the fact its pennies to run off sets the high purchase price.

But this over a Cayman or M2 ??!!

No..... Great car.... But he'll tire of it very quickly if the other options were an M2 or a Gayman

I wouldn’t swap a beemer for another beemer with the amount you’ve moaned about them...

Golf R is a great car but seems to go against everything you look for in a car. It’s definitely not like an old GTI you’ll throw around and feel every twitch of steering

If I was in your shoes I’d have a cheapish car for the daily rat race, probably a mini like you had ages ago. Then either a fun 2 seater (Z4, S2000, Chimera) or fun (ish) 4 seater older 3 series convertible, 911

Alternatively change the Zafira for something you’d rather drive combined with a mini or 2 seater. XC60, Q5 etc with a bigger engine and toys

Yeah. Golf R....i mean....i've not driven one (this one) but a lot of the feedback on PH from owners is that they are very very quick...and great all rounders (which is great if that is what you want/need) but when it comes to fun/character, they say it doesn't have those.
But then other owners absolutely love them...so who knows.

I had a MK6 Golf R for the weekend once, i know it's not as 'good' as the current one but yeah, despite being very, very quick (270ps back then) it just left me a bit cold! Refined, very capable, all rounder family hatch+hot hatch....but like....i dunno...a bit 'meh'. I recall i had a Leon Cupra R around the same with similar specs (but not 4WD) time which in many ways was the inferior car....but it was just so much more fun! Loved it!
