I must be getting old 'cause your post is hard to readpsychociv said:alrtie i guess since i am looking into buying a mkv gti and i own a civic i can jump in. Im guessing not many people street race? I can say iv drivin tons of fast vics from all motor to turbo ones and u cant underestimate them. It all just depends on what you are looking for, theres ways a civic can match up to a gti, take a vic say a 00 si you can get one for like what 8g's rite now throw that other 15 into it and i would bet on the si wining a race against a gti even with slight mods, and then if u wanna compare style and interior i would have to say my 01 ex with leather seats is very comfortable and everyone seems to love it, only thing i can say is it would cost allot to make a civic look, ride, and go fast so thats were the gti wins, the car has it all so u all say. so u can match the cars but like i said it depends on what you are looking for. If i didnt hate 4 door hondas and the motor in the new si's i would never have even looked at a gti. Do not think i am all for hondas they do have there down sides but so does every car. I love the look of the mkv gti and i hope i love how it drives tomorrow.
um yea well i can say the same for gti's or any other car just becouse its a vic dont mean that is going to happen. I have gotten more nods from other vics then people trying to challenge me. Not everyone is like that. If you wanna say anything i think its the people with cars that are fast like say an sti, or an evo that pull up next to vics that try and show off and such correct me if im wrongGranTurismoInjection said:Here's the everyday difference (from my view):
Yesterday, I saw another Candy White GTI drive off while I was getting in mine at a gas station, and the guy looked over and gave me the nod of approval, which I promptly returned. That's always cool.
If a Si pulls up to another Si somewhere, they will automatically challenge each other to race, balls-to-the-wall style, resulting in an accident or the shame of one driver. That's never cool. Ever.
