    If there is a AWD Civic type R then I'm in if not then I'll take a Golf R.

    • Rik Powell
      Rik Powell 6 days ago

      @Dan Vercruysse fair enough. Modern FWD are very clever with all the technology these days. 5 years ago I would vow never to own FWD but now cars like the FK8 really are clever and make the AWD in the Focus RS seem pointless in comparison. Each to their own I guess

    • Dan Vercruysse
      Dan Vercruysse 6 days ago

      @Rik Powell I live in Vermont so it's pretty much mandatory to have AWD.

    • Rik Powell
      Rik Powell 6 days ago

      Go read some comparison tests between the two cars and decide for yourself which you want, personally AWD is boring to drive

    Never owned a Honda. Came close out of desperation, but have only owned Chevys (1979 Z28 camaro, 2007 Silverado Classic, 1976 Camaro and 1998 K1500 z71 pickup) very happy with my choices this far.

    You think the 8th gen Civic is boring? I think it’s one of the best Civics

      the SI wasn't boring, the regular models were just commuters. FA1 civic hybrid was better then prius IMO.
