Yeah that 5-pot sounds like a dream! Specially if u change the exhaust that's my only concern! That the car won't be as good as my MK3. On the other hand the car seems to keep its value pretty well! Same for MK1 RS (which I wouldn't even consider)I always thought the MK2 RS in green was a killer car. Great sounding engine, good looks. Super rare, lots of potential.
But you'd be trading in for something that is quite a bit older, less refined and probably less practical.
Cool as all hell though.
