His style, the cool, calm, and collected approach, speaks to me. I can't stand the over animated reviews like the motortrend review comparing the R and RS. I still watch them and pull info out, but I prefer the more rational approach of Savage.

And his comment about the plastic lug nut caps... lol. I didn't know that was a thing until I got this car... Seems dumb.

An interesting thing that I've found in moving to the R, is that the demographic that owns these cars is much larger than just people wanting an R/RS/STI/CTR. There are a significant number of people buying the R instead of other higher end performance cars like BMW's, Audi's, etc. They end up at the R because it's a great bang-for-the-buck car that still gives an upscale feel. And a good number of people selling their older R's are moving up to products like an RS3, not moving to cars like an STI or RS. I'm sure it helps that the mechanics of the R are identical to the S3, making the move more linear. Most of the video reviews I've found don't really address that dynamic though.
