Or you could just buy a used MR2 and save yourself tens of thousands of dollars...

Not to mention the embarrassment of driving that monstrosity.

It does resemble it, but then again the MR2 spyder looked a bit like a shorter, ugly-ish version of the Boxster.

So does that make it an ugly imitation of an ugly imitation? :biggrin:

I think the sides of the car are terrible. It looks like one car sitting inside a sling, the way the front nose sits "inside" the front lip, same thing around the taillights.

Guilly your way too hard on VW. That engine is incredible. It won the International engine of the year award from 2005 through 2008. You should drive a vehicle equipped with one before you pass judgment.

Oh, and I would buy the VW and save myself a bunch of money...

If you're going to argue with Guilly, ya gotta come better armed than that. You don't see "long-term reliability" as one of the judging criteria, do you?

Have you priced these cars out? I did, and at equivalent option levels you're not really saving "a bunch of money" either way.

VW doesn't have reliability issues with their engines, and the 2.0 FSI engine is what I am specifically talking about. If it won 4 years in a row, then it must be pretty reliable because if they were blowing up left and right then they would probably pick up on that...

The 2.0TFSI is a pretty stout and rather reliable little motor, so I don't think that really applies in this case (unless there's something I don't know about). If you said anything else, I'd agree with you!

I have driven plenty of diesel VW's, not impressed.

I am overly hard on VW (I am an admitted VW hater) but there's a reason for it, their quality/dependability sucks big time.
