I must admit there are days when I would rather have a Golf R because as much as I love my D I think I am a bit too protective of it, whereas instinctively I would be less so with a Golf. It's smaller and I would feel more free throwing it about more. I was that way with my '86 Jetta and it wasn't even close to as cool as the R, aside from the damper mods I did on it.

I agree that the Jeep is a tad harsh. I rented a Jeep twice: once in Sedona 'cuz it was the only thing the agency had at the moment and once in Kauai purposely 'cuz I wanted to drive on some sand in the southwest corner. Really tiring to drive. Not sure why people buy them other than for pure off-road or pure snow or something.
