    a mk1 S3 tbh, just think they have wussed out with the new one and I prefer the mk4 R32 as well. Love the inside of the new S3 but the body lets it down omo

    Why change? You have a stunning car as it is. Black - nice colour, nice wheels. Why not tune it mildly instead and save the money for something else.

    From what I read, the R32 is heavy and cumbersome in the corners.

    R32 157.43 bhp/ton
    S3 174.58 bhp/ton

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    s3 all day long, look at the depreciation on the golf compared to the s3, i have seen a few r32's a year old for around 16-17k, a year old s3 is worth at least 22k+, plus the s3 is a hell fo a lot better IMO

    I'd have the S3 all day, R32 dont really appeal to me.
    S3 looks better inside and out i reckon. Plus dont see many S3 on the road...See r32 quite alot down by me. I'd just never own a golf. S3 all day
    Plus they hold there money quite good

    I voted S3 Jase, Unless I needed 5 doors or had to have a V6 soundtrack(excluding the Sportsback S3), then the R32 would always be my second choice between the 2.

    I love both but R32's just aren't that fast and with a simple remap to the S3 you have 300+ bhp!

    The 2009 shape S3 looks fantastic too. Thats what i want next!
