Weird? K swap that lotus and it will be faster then a k swap mr2, an you aussies know what they run at the air strip. Plus the billet k series engine is only $6500 (1700hp). Billet 2jz 30k(3k hp), 4g63 is 20k(1800hp), MMR does a coyote v8 for new mustangs 10 or $12,000 and makes 3500hp. Ppg 6 speed gear set rsx manual trans for the billet k is 4-6,000. A sequential for the k is over 10k. My dream car is that setup in a Honda NSX. They are finally cheap at the Asian auction sites

Guys and gals when you're guessing try to remember he said RWD, no back seats, completely impractical and a bit weird. Most of the guesses don't even fit that criteria. Think along the lines of a Lotus Elise/Exige, MRS, Atom, TK ZZ2, Mclaren 12c or anything inbetween. Also remember he can probably afford an expensive car but thats not necessarily what he likes so it could be pretty much anything. Maybe even an old Porsche spider or GT3 - who knows?

The Golf is objectively speaking one of the best cars in the entire world, it does everything well with few drawbacks however that’s why it makes the cardinal sin of being utterly boring. It’s a jack of all trades, master of nothing which makes for a very uninspiring vehicle.

I had a GTI because of Moog and Jason Camisa. After the second time the engine blew up, I traded it in for an ILX. The weird thing is, I didn't even drive it hard, mostly just commuting, I'd send it on a freeway on ramp maybe once a month. Loved that car when it was working right, but if a car is going to repeatedly need major work, it needs to have more soul. Congratulations on the Lotus.

through out all of this I've been left wondering for the last year or more. WHAT'S GOING ON WITH THE FOCUS RS?
De-bodgery Month ago
The R got far too little play time on this channel! There were many times that you did races and the R never showed up and I was always wondering why. BAD move!!! You could have sold off all sorts of cars and done far better. Selling the R...that's going to send you to hell when you die.

Probably won't get read, but probably one of the saddest days. I'm a huge VW enthusiast and the VW community alone is way bigger than most and most VW's are actual head turners from vintage to modern VW's. I've followed you for 10 yrs or longer and thought it was cool on different sides of the planet and yet you rock a VW. I'm sure you'll be back in another one. so I'm sure it's not the end of the world.

I’m sure REVO was definitely mad assuming they gave the mods to you at a steep discount and sold the car to make a profit which you then were able to get the Lotus.

True passion speaks millions through the words of this video, the roots of love will never change! You ever watch someone drive by in the most clapped out 370 or whatever, they’re smiling because they love it. Through all the speed bumps and uneven roads, the break fix and repeat keeps us alive.

Moog, I gotta be honest with you. And it might have something to do with the fact that I live in Germany. Even though your Golf can go to 100 in less than 3 seconds, I personally still think that it's a dull car. As you said, it lacks personality, which does make it dull for me. The Golf is just...too good, for a lack of a better word. It's too well balanced, too practical, too precise. Too "Golf". And the strange thing is, that the old Golfs, up to and including Mk4, were not as Golf as all the current ones are.
Captain Fartmaster
Great move to sell that dull thing for the Exige S. That lotus is never ever going to be boring.

The MK7 Golf R was an incredible sleeper. Shame on you Moog!

Yay, a forester getting some love for once. Iv recently got myself a JDM 99 Forester StI SF and I love it, always puts a smile on my face, upgraded turbo (BT 4.0) a full exhaust system with sports cat, TEIN street master coil overs, full pollybush kit and it’s sitting on 19x9.5 oz super turismo’s. Apart from those everything else is stock. Iv still got my daily which is a 2001 Impreza special edition (cashmere edition) with a 2006 Subaru Legacy 2.5 twin scroll and 6 speed box conversion (it’s the one in the photo there

Jason Andersen
Jason Andersen Month ago
Yeah, I think it's the same issue for most Volkswagen owners. After finishing their cars they just got bored and eventually got rid of it. A lot of my Volkswagen friends had turn into Miatas, F30s, F32s, or a Porsche. I'm still a proud owner of a MK7 Golf. Far from finished project and unlike in Australia, parts are really expensive here..
Well there wasn't much point in the R beyond being a good daily but you guys have a million fun cars to drive and tinker on. The only upgrades I could have seen you do to the R was a TTRS 2.5L swap.

I totally get it. I'm a huge VW fanboi, and have been for 20 years. I have a MKV GTI daily, and I love it- it replaced a MKIV TDI Beetle (with a lot of mods!) that got totaled in an accident. But I am fixing the Beetle and will sell the GTI. The reason is that the GTI really lacks that "X-factor" that the Beetle has. The MKVI and VII GTI and Golf R are lacking that X-factor even more than the MKV's even though they are really, really good cars. I had a VR6 Corrado that was full of X-factor even though it wasn't a great car... and my MKI Scirocco is basically nothing but X-factor..... I'd love to be able to afford a Golf R, and I might have one someday but I don't think you need to explain any further than you did because most VW people would probably understand. It's sort of like what Clarkson said when he reviewed the Fiat 500 Abarth- it was "too good" and didn't have any of the zanyness of cars with the Abarth badge in the past and James said "So what you are saying is, it would be better, if it was worse?" And Clarkson said "Yes."

You should have bought a base model Exige and did a K swap to it.

In other words, Golf R is not a manual and is not fun to drive

I made a similar decision w/ my motorcycles. Sold a '98 Honda VFR800 and replaced it with a '97 Yamaha V-Max. Other bike is an '04 GSX-R 1000 that's difficult to ride under 90 MPH. Got rid of the perfect bike, and now I have 2 impractical, fire-breathing dragons. Makes no sense whatsoever.

Basically what happened is the car was finished. It already had basically everything except being supercar fast, and then you made it supercar fast. It is now peak Golf, essentially perfect. Yes you could make it have 1000hp but then it wouldn't be reliable and the price/performance would be gone, and it would be less streetable. All it means when this happens is that the owner is a tinkerer and not someone who just wants a thing, and then gets it and is content. It's not like some sort of insult to the thing you're getting rid of, you simply have to keep yourself busy. It's not something you should feel like you need to explain or apologize for.

Love the channel mate but.. Of all the cars you own... selling the VW was about the last thing you should have done. Reliable, fast, fun to drive and functional... the GTI/GOLF is litteraly an unbeatable package. All it really needs is a true mechanical AWD system.
