Yeah I agree. Most threads go on without chaos here. The only exceptions are really only the VS. threads that happen to include wolf. Those seem to turn into dumpster fires VERY quickly hahah.
I think a lot of it has to do with the car's audience. Now I'm not saying this is an absolute, but I think the Golf, GTI, R crowd tends to be a little more grown up than some other car scenes. Just judging on the career section there's more engineers, IT guys, managers, bankers, and business associates then in a lot of other scenes imo.
Thats funny you said that. I always thought this as a young persons car. But when I was buying my car and went to the head, my wife asked the salesmen what type of person buys this car and he said the same as you.
