Which one should i get?
hondor for ricerz and easy dily driving-
vdubb for effortless looks and daily driving
honda quality > vw quality
I can tell you from personal experience...VW Customer Service BLOWS.
Even having said that, given the choices here, I'd still take the VW.
Honda > VW
Honda are more reliable and cheaper. I ended up buying a Honda Civic LX-S, the only reason I did not get the SI model is because I have a 300zx & RX7, so I wanted a straight daily driver.
Depends, do you want a 3 door hatch or a 5 door sedan?
My first car was a Civic Si sedan, I chose that over the GTI because it was more fun to drive imo and I didn't really like hatches. I tested them both and chose a manual, but if you want the GTI the DSG is the way to go.
For the current year, I would probably pick the new redesigned 2010 GTI with DSG over the Si though. I've heard really good things about the new GTI.
Have you driven them both already?
Why are you comparing the 3-door GTi to the 4-door Civic? At least compare it to the 2-door Civic.
Or the 5 door GTI
I'd take an Evo over a Subaru over either of those.
Mitsubishi transmissions are garbage and Subarus have trouble wearing out their wheel bearings.
Both of these things only really happen with track use.
the real issue is neither of them makes a good dd because they get shit gas mileage...my 15 year old truck uses less gas.
According to the internet...
GTI 0-60mph = 6.9 seconds
SI 0-60mph = 6.7 seconds
Plus Honda is more reliable, cheaper to fix, and great on gas.
I know three people who daily-drive their Subies and they all have either noisy wheel bearings or dragging brakes caused by loose wheel bearings. It's terrible.
But yes, the AWD also sucks for gas mileage.
Deus, you drove a VW and now a RX8. You claim a helmet blocks out all noise on a motorcycle.
You do not know anything, and should shut the fuck up. The WRX, I do not know about the Evo, only starts blowing up transmissions when you get in the 400+hp range and/or go to the track and abuse the shit out of the gas pedal and gears.
Evo: 4.9 second 0-60
lol have u drove ether car...i have a somewhat worked wrx and my boys evo has trouble keeping up...hes no where in sti territory
GTI not even something to consider.
Lol, speak English fag.
I'll believe a car magazine review over your half-ass attempt to speak English.
love my GTI- got it earlier this year for 0%, and customer service depends on the dealer; I'm fortunate to have a nice one close by.
the GTI would be my choice. it has more torque, which means more fun in the straights. the chassis is stiffer o the handling would be more neutral. it also is turbocharged so it can def be made to be faster than th si. finally, vw is not as unreliable as they have been in the past, so you can have peace of mind there too.
Honda > VW for quality.
VW > Honda for design.
I believe Car and Driver got a second quicker in there GTI than advertised claims Lexus does this all the time.
GTI is getting 32 mpg real world and add APR Stage 1 ECU re flash is $500 and you get 54 more hp and 75 tq with same mileage all which can be hidden from the dealer.
The quality for VWs have gone up and almost every review the interior is noted for its high quality.
GTI got Automobiles Car of the year award for 2010// Civic wasnt even mentioned...
having owned a mkIII gti vr6...
GTI if you plan on owning it up to 50-60k miles
Si if you plan on owning it for longer than 50-60k miles
after that 50-60k mile mark, vw/audi cars develop what i like to call "issues"...
my friend had an 04 wrx with some light mods and daily drove the thing. went to phoenix from los angeles every month in. sold it with 80k miles, no problems.
i had an 09 evo gsr and i beat the piss out of it every moment i had. new tires by 10k miles haha.
anyways, i would smash on my friends wrx all day in a drag race but especially in the canyons. what year wrx do you have? i heard the 09+ wrx's are ridiculous with an exhaust and tune.
