We had an E84 X1 35i and we've test driven the X1 and X2 and they're just not my thing. My GTI is a wildly better execution of fwd, and even good enough to not tempt me with the Golf R. It's not like it's an oversteering monster or anything and I've driven enough STI's and WRX's on track to know that a 50/50 setup is still an understeering mess.
the gti is imho the best fwd car on earth... especially for the price... if i didnt have an m2 comp and wanted to pay half that would be my choice
