Yes I have finally done it – test drove the new 2010 Scirocco-R and Golf-R back to back.  Here is my detailed review and commentary, plus information about stuff no other reviewer has mentioned (but I think any owner would want to know).

I did this on Saturday 15th May 2010 in Auckland, courtesy of Giltrap Prestige on New North Road.  The weather was a combination of overcast, and rain (ranging from light showers to very heavy downpour).  This means that at one stage part of the roads were VERY flooded, and plenty of variety to test the cars   Oh, before I start I would have to say the sales staff were very helpful, and knowledgeable too.

UPDATE Feb 2011: I now own a Golf-R – my updated review can be found here (but read this post 1st!)

Anyway, here’s what I will be covering in my review:

  1. My overall impressions of each car, trying to focus on what other reviews don’t tell you (but you might wanna know)
  2. The differences between each car
  3. How they stack up against the competition and the whole value thing
