    This forum cannot go down !!!.

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    It's my pleasure to inject some pork back into the forum

    I traded that in for an Edition 30 5 years ago, and still loving it I'd recommend one as a Corrado replacement any day of the week, or to own alongside a Corrado

    R32s are just a bit too heavy and cumbersome for me. The GTI is a lot more nimble. MK5s respond REALLY well to chassis upgrades without ruining the ride, which was always an issue with the Corrado!

    That's exactly why I opted for a highly optioned Mk7 GTI p/p over an R , cant beat the GTI for its iconic handling and branding. Even when the Golf rallye was about with the heavy all wheel drive the 16V wiped its ass. Can't say that anymore with the GTI and R but i'll still go for the GTI as loyal to the brand and has heritage. Love the club sport could be the best investment VAG car of all time.

    How much does it cost to run a forum? Perhaps a few of us could take it over and move it onto a better, more modern platform?

    I would a love a ClubSport S but it became a bit of a speculators car on top of it's already steep price tag, which made it unattainable for the average GTI fan. The regular Clubsport looks like a good buy though, and a cheeky remap will delete the silly 20 second over boost function, and take it up to Golf R power. Last chance to get a 3 door GTI as well, seeing as VW have dropped them now!

    Always keep an eye out for a tidy Mk5 GTI in case my wallet is feeling frisky.

    Now the kind of banter we see above is what this forum has been missing - reminds me of when I joined up around 2008/9. There's been a thread to discuss what the future of the forum might be and what direction to take, but there hasn't been much visible movement on it.

    I think most people were happy to donate, but not to make it a completely closed site. I work in IT, so more than happy to help out as an admin or with forum software maintenance and issues - the big roadblock for all message board platforms at the moment seems to be image hosting and associated costs - this is why most newbies just head straight for FB as they can just snap and post - but it's just so horrible and useless for knowledge sharing and searching.
