what would you choose and why?

can get both around the same price.

VR6 = Less common + coupe, more grown up, respected

Golf = More tuning parts, its a turbo, and newer, but is it still looked upon as a boyracer hot hatch?

I chose golf simply for tuning potential and the fact that its newer.

dont get me wrong, I would love a green VR6... but just think they are overpriced!

Do you want to tune it?

I'd go for the VR6 if you aren't bothered about modding.

Prefer the VR6 as theyr'e so 1.8T probably has more potential though...

The Corrado sounds crap though Eck unless it's the V6

Personally I'd go for the Golf. Apparently Corrados have a long list of common problems which can be costly.

I've voted for Corrado.

A lad i know has one of these, cracking car. Built like a tank. It's the sound though. I'm biased.

driven a couple of corrados now, they seem spot on, great sitting position, feel like car is built around you rather then just perched on a seat in a metal bubble, steering was very sharp and precise
