I completely agree. I drove an 18 GTI before buying my ST a few months ago and had a similar experience. The GTI has a nicer interior and feels newer to me but lacks in the “fun to drive” area. I chose the ST primarily due to the way it makes me feel when I drive it. The suspension feels sportier, engine feels stronger, and you don’t need to switch the car into sport mode to hear the engine rev. Just my experience from recently car shopping.
