Get a stage 2 tune and you'll be replacing the OEM clutch very early.

Most people are not testing the limits of the car at the track either.



Also lets not forget the STI exists...they tend to hold value as well. Though, if you are choosing a car based on how it holds value, you should probably buy used. Or invest your money instead in actual assets

Yes, got at 2016 in my garage next to my Golf-R. Fantastic cars to have for variety. I love my Golf-R and STI.
I'm not sure I can enjoy the Civic TypeR. I might still get one though since I have a spot open in my garage.

Have no idea why you said that in relation to what I said.

Immense understatement. I sold my 07 WRX with 177k for almost 15k

All you do is jump into the rabbit hole of defining what is "the best version" before you eventually realize that you lost the game days ago. And in the end, all your data is shit and no one should trust it.

Yes, obviously the DSG will be way faster on a start and in a straight line, but I'm still not sure that matters in the end with a full track test. The CTR is a beast.
Sorry but that makes no sense. There is a big difference between testing two stock cars with the transmissions they come with from the factory than a stock vs modded car. Your "proper" way of doing it is running with a nerfed version of the Golf R which the manual essentially is if you want the best possible performance.
