Sorry- it's an old inside joke with a few of us here. I'll PM you.

Nissan makes a great car- my last two vehicles (SUVs) were Nissans. ;)

yeah totally raced one with 456 hp and killed it when the thing tried to take a turn it just blew up under the pressure of going up against a GTI and it being a nissan se-r...

I bought one of the original se-r's back in '92.
Still have it, just gave it to my son to take to
college this fall. It has 120,000 miles on it and still
performs better than a lot of the cars I test drove
this year in my search for a new car for me.

After a number of test drives, Lancer, Cooper S,
Cobalt SS, 350Z, RX-8, Mustang, Civic si and
probably a couple others I've forgotten, the benchmark
for the test drives quickly became....is this as much
fun to drive as a 15 yr. old, well maintained se-r ?

The GTI is the one that won me over.

I didn't even consider the spec V se-r. It's strayed
too far from the original concept IMO.

I promised my son my GTI when he graduates HS (but I may have to reset the chip to valet mode before I let him drive it! ;) )

I did test drive a few of the cars you had on the your list... the GTI won.
