    Golf GTI vs MY NEXT NEW CAR

    HI i recently got my first car, is a 2002 golf gti. The cool thing about this car is that the whole engine is new, but the problem is that it has the 2.0 8v, so i cant get really fast on that car. My top speed i've achieved in this car is 210 km\h or 130mph thats great but at 6000 rpms i cant hold that speed for too long. I am going to get a new car, and i dont know which one. I have around 9k and i think my options are a 2000 civic sir (1.6 and 160hp), my other option is a 2002-2004 clio sport (2.0 172hp). Which one you like the most. also you could tell me what other car to get with that money, that should be a "fast car".

    Get another GTI. But one with a VR or 1.8T. Chip + 3" TBE = win.

    Clio Sport is your best choice.
    I'd get one if I didn't have to drive to Mexico to get it

    Definitely the Clio is the one to go for.

    If you don't need the rear seats the MX-5 could be a good option.

    As the individualistic bastard, buy a Honda Civic Si/Si-R/Type-R
    Not.

    Just go and buy a Clio and call it a day. Spend whatever money left on beers to celebrate your new purchase.

    Out of the two, I'd definatly go with the Clio.

    Here are some other options you have that I like:
    Toyota Yaris TS
    Fiat Punto Abarth
    Seat Ibiza FR
    I am easily satisfied with the very best.

    1995 300ZX Twin Turbo. You can find them for roughly 7-10k in good condition, and they're fast as hell.
