In Reply to: VW GTI VR6 -- or -- 323is, Any thoughts... posted by Yogi on December 23, 1998 at 13:07:58:

If your looking to do a ton of mods and play with the engine, suspension, etc get the VW. There is a ton more stuff available and at a cheaper price to work on VW than on BMW. If you are looking for a track car don't get a new one, look back at at a mid/early 80's GTI with the larger 4 cylinder, excellent track car at a cheap price.

At the same time you will never get the refinement of one of the new 323's out of a VW. Depends on what you want, if you want to learn about the car and play with it get the VW. If you want a more refined (better?) overall car get the BMW.

Different strokes, different folks.
