Exactly... Hot hatches are not track toys... they're fun cars for twisty roads... I think CAR magazine got it right!adamlondon said:That being said not many of us are going to race a gti round a track! 'Car' magazine recently (last month I think) tested the Works, new Golf GTI, Renaultsport Megane 225 and Civic Type R together in a road test, and the result was the Works was the car that everyone wanted to drive home at the end! In the real world I think we all know which is the better car!
But all that said... It's the character of the car that draws me to it, and 2 seconds around a track means nothing to me!!... none of the other cars on there can match the mini for uniqueness.
