    New Golf GTI anyday!

    ..new MPS??? pfff

    I would go the GTI and then slowly mod it.. win win!

    Seeing money is a factor I would look into the new XR5...., looks very close to a Ford RS!

    Even a XR5 would be better than a new MPS.

    Its everything else that falls apart around you..

    I destroyed two gearboxes in mine everything busted except the engine..

    and the new DSG while its exciting any new they are ****ing god aweful...

    i wouldnt recommend a golf to my worst enemy..

    that said.. i have just been given a MK1 Golf GTI Shell which i will probably make in to a race car..

    GTI cheap to mod??? planet do you live on HAHAHA

    Euro aftermarket parts which are GOOD are expensive...IMO I wouldn't even touch anything but APR for ECU stuff and exhausts are expensive same with intake stuff...mate has a GTI Polo with a fair amount of stuff and is at the point now that the next mod will cost big $$$$

    well yeah certain mods might be expensive,especially after a certain point (like any car) ....but when you can buy a chip for $1000 and add 50 kw straight up i consider that alot cheaper and easier to mod than an MPS for similar gains....

    I did choose the MPS for a reason though....stock for stock much more exciting car
