Just got bored and ready for a change. Kept it twice as long as I did the R32. EVO mags initial road tests were of preproduction cars. The actual production ones were a lot better. Certainly prefered the VXR as a drivers car above the R32 and way overated MKV GTI. The VXR does love bends, but its a car you do have to learn to get the most out of, unlike the GTI that I was happy handing the keys to my wife.
