No AWD understeer? That's pretty sweet. It's a nice looking car also.
As for the Golf, (and that one above does look like fun) my uncle had a base model 2-door one years ago as a company car, that he ended up buying from them when he moved on. He was approaching the 300k mile mark on it before he sold it, but at that point all the little things were breaking. Only one outside door handle worked (passenger side, of course) only one window would go down (yup, passenger side) HVAC fan was either on full blast or not at all, etc., etc. He actually was sad to let it go but all those parts were too expensive to justify on such a beat-down car.
Yeah, it's dead-on neutral, and it isn't that hard to get the tail to kick out, despite what I've heard test drivers claim, just a little steering flick and some generous throttle with the TC off (maybe they didn't turn off the TC?), and away she goes.
The Golf R is a great little car, and seriously fun to throw around. I'm sure the Focus ST is nice, but that VW is crazy, I can't think of another "driver's car" that's that good for $35k.
Yeah billy, that's what the hideous Lambo canopy reminds me of, a cheesy Hot Wheels car.
