meg vs vxr
Just looked at that clip again and it does certainly say that the Golf R32 does the lap in 1m 33.4, but the clip I have shows a 1m 30.4. I wonder if the 1m 33.2 is the MK4 golf?
Also, the MK5 Golf that was tested was the DSG gearbox version which has been reported to be quite awesome in how quickly it changes gears. Golf state 6.2 to 60 for the DSG, as compared to 6.5 for the manual, but the a MK5 with a DSG box was tested in VW Driver at 5.8 to 60. That makes it one hell of a quick car however you look at it.
Come to think of it, the 1m 33.4 could be the manual MK5, and there are more of those on the road than teh DSG versions (it was a DSG that I had on order - cancelled due to cost and indefinate waiting time!!)
