I nearly pissed laughing at the end 😂😂
How about the VW Scirocco R, would be a perfect match against both.
Oh man, I am glad I watched all the way to the end, funny as hell when he Front wheel dracaena!!! Ha ha😂🤣
How do the cars compare in snowy conditions? :)
do an RS3 engine & drivetrain swap to the GTI and race it against the R.
Everyone mugs me off about my polo gti 6c , but my mechanic reckons my car is quicker then his wife's golf 7.5 performance pack
What kind of shoes is Luke King wearing?
Can we get a video of the 180T on the track?
Надіюсь, колись ці два сни зустрінуться, і буде щось типу Ево 9 проти Гольф 7. А потім всі прокинуться десь в кладовці після автомобільного шоу, на корпоративі із підписниками))
yeh but in the snow...
Lol pertamina lubricants 😂
Idea for you guys. Import a newer VW sirocco and test it against the R & GRI
why would you put PS5's on there over 4's? they have less grip..
I've gone, kind of the best of both worlds. Mk7.5 alltrack. DSG and 4motion. Slightly heavier wagon sure. I've done some good mods, IE intake, turbo erbow, and intercooler, is20turbo, custom exhaust (res delete, 2.75" pipes to 2.5" pipes at the splitter, stock mufflers with nice tips. Stage 3 ECU tune + TCU. Currently does highish 4sec 0-100s on launch control. With some better/new tyres, we can scrub a bit more off that time, and could takeome extra weight out of the boot if I really wanted some reduction.
Still has flappy paddles, and brakes are the same as the GTI not the R. On the down side it is the 1.8, not a 2L, but it's faster than a stage 1 Golf R even with only an is20. Such a fun platform.
Love this video, and Luke would be a great regular addition. So natural on the camera and amazing commentries, really informative.
Loved this content.. That ending was rich! 😂… I think Marty ate that edible in his dream as well thinking his GTI would time better.. 🤣 (traded my GTI for an R)…
Type R would destroy them both🤣🤣
R has on the dyno 340 hp :)
Sorry but Haldex Traction will never be AWD like the AWD in Subaru and other Japanese cars. this Haldex system is more like Front-wheel drive that give assist front losing grip.
Just grab an M135i or M140i :D
