    that would be a drag i would love to see :4:

    on paper T2 is correct, the power to weight of the GTI (207hp, 280Nm, 1414kg) gives it an edge over the standard 320d (184hp, 380Nm, 1520kg).
    it's a lot closer when you power and torque up the 320d to 204hp, 420Nm...! the bimmer's RWD gives it a little bit of extra grunt too
    ...wonder what the result might be? so when's this event again?

    hahaha...u very analytical...i only based it on my butt dyno...hehehe

    when the 320d goes for its first dose of adrenalin its only fair that the gti goes for its first dose as well at stage 1...at that 1st dose...the 320d is still unfortunately left trailing the golf...

    no offence to 320d owners...i have nothing against the car but the gti is one tough car to 'take care' due to its potential...

    I think even power kitted 320d can't win golf, but on long distance run, sure win, coz 320d can go 1.5x of the golf with a full tank.. ha..

    no offense taken, chief. a good car is a good car, irrespective of make. likewise, a sucky car will be a sucky one, even with a posh luxury emblem on it.
    been out in a passat and scirocco, and prefer the e90d from a handling/value perspective. i've been meaning to take the GTI out for a test drive sometime, so many have raved about it. hehe. the A5 too. keke. and maybe the RCZ...

    I tested the GTI shortly after gettimg my 320d-didn't like the skinny steering-didn't feel the "kick"-felt so much like a student's car-college boy's car. My 2 cents. Of course, I didn't hammer it down MEX-maybe then I would have seen its true colours.
