    They suuuuuure are fuckin' sweet to drive, though!

    My friend has an R32, it weighs 3409lbs. That's excessive!

    Yeah, a 3400lb AWD V6-powered 6 speed hatch with tons of equipment and amazing handling.

    VW's are heavy SOB's but they handle great. R32's are amazing, heavy or not, I'd love to own one.

    Stock VWs don't handle all that well. My GTI-VR6 was a pig stock! Too much roll and too soft!

    My Jetta is ridin on an H&R cupkit........Handles like crazy. Put some sticky tires on it and you can go for a hell of a ride. As far as stock, I guess I shouldn't comment, I only know what mine is like and it wasn't SO bad.

    Yeah, but that's hardly the point... you can make a KIA handle well with enough aftermarket support so that's a moot point.

    Stock, VW needs to work on thier suspension (except the R32, which is very nice.. I drive my friend's almost daily hehe)
