Sorry but no. I do not think there is a single S2000, Civic, or Mazda Miata that looks good and the new Type R's look like a horrible toy that some 3 year old designed.
I think the other thing to mention as well, is VW uses the MQB platform for several of it's vehicles. That's very enticing for aftermarket companies because it's a little easier to create parts for. Develop on one car, test on a few more, and blam you have a new part!
The other thing that comes to mind for parts selection, is that other market vehicles (JDM) for example, have TONS of parts companies making parts, but for vehicles you may not be interested in. For example, Toyota has crazy aftermarket support for the Tacoma/4runner/Landcruiser/Tundra. I own a 3rd gen 4runner, and aftermarket parts companies are crazy abundant. When I was looking into lift kits I think it took me weeks of research to figure out what brand to go with, then what spring rates, then do I want aftermarket UCA's, what about stiffer bushings?, etc.
However, I will say that the euro companies definitely have higher quality videos/instructions/etc. I guess they just get with the times better, lol
LOL I completely agree with this. I had a 2nd gen for a while and it sucked for support. I figured people just hated it because of the terrible 3.0. Worst mpg of any car I've owned, zero power, and questionable reliability.
