    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

    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:s3addict:

    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.

    S3...but like others have said not the sportback, don't really like the R32...the older one was much more appealing...

    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!
