Look out guys, we got a badass over here.
This just in, no one envies you, guy. You drive a $40k car, not a Ferrari.
And in regards to the OP, I took a Golf R on a fairly extensive test drive and it was an awesome car. If I had been in the market for one, you bet your ass it would be on my list of cars to seriously consider. It's tight without being uncomfortable, torque comes on strong and makes it feel quicker than the numbers would suggest (at least, that's how it felt to me..). Seats and shifter and steering wheel are all very comfortable. I thought it was a great car and I don't think you'll regret your purchase.
