Did you read the part about the full throttle sound level? This has to be because they didn't disconnect the symposer.
I'm not interested in agreeing or disagreeing - and I'm certainly not defending the GTI - but I'd like to see proof of its getting "badly crushed" in "every" driving comparison.We're going to have to agree to disagree. I've never been too impressed with the value prop on the GTI, especially now that the ST is available, and I'm certainly not impressed with my sister's 2011 Golf as compared to several other small cars. So it's just going to come down to personal preference.
