Sorry, but you deserved the responses you got.

Your message had an unspoken air of superiority throughout the entire thing. The RS is a fine car, but you make it sound like it can take a 996 after nothing but a rear swaybar.

Shrug.

Greg.

I can't give a solid opinion because you've edited your original post.

I would initially agree with Greg though... what is posted right now is not an accurate and fair depiction of the vehicle.

I drive a 2.5RS and I felt it was the best $19k car when I bought in 4/99, but then again the Golf 1.8T wasn't around. I don't know what that one guy was smoking about the shifters though, VWs have had really nasty shifters for quite some time-- sloppy linkage and long throws.

the original post is the original post, the edit was done a few seconds after the original post for spelling.

Also I said the RS could out handle "most cars in its class", maybe I worded the post to aggresivly

I dont know.

if ur a vw fan i can see how u might take the post the wrong way, but that didnt mean the guy had to be such an a-hole about it. and he nver bashed the VW he may have taken on the air that the RS was a better car but he in no way said the vw wasnt worthy. that gut was being jerk if u ask me
especially when u tried to appologize and still gave u an attitude about it.

Yea, its no big deal he seems to be the only one to have a problem with my original post, noone else took offence to it, I have since appologized for wording the post to aggresivley, I cant wait to see what he says.

VW shifters are absolute crap.

Maybe the guy likes the vague feel of a cable linkage.

Pretty much, you go on a brand-specific board like that, post the kind of message you did (that promotes a competing brand), and you have to expect idiots to flame you. Don't stress over it, but if you really want to put yourself in that kind of situation, go in with a level head and a humble attitude and they'll be more inclined to listen to the gospel.
