    I really don't care about that, I can drive. Driving part is ok.

    But whole infotainment sytem is a joke, screen washer doesn't work above 120kmh (not enough pressure, to lower fuel consumption), AC turns off automaticly below 3 degrees, so whole winter I drove on manual air con.. etc. etc etc.

    That's why Golf GTI would so much better as daily, but it wouldn't give so much fun.

    Honestly, I got good deal (price) on Renault so I really don't care, but going for new car I would propably end up with Hyundai i30n.

    infotainment should not be allowed on fast cars, simply distract you too much.
    other things are ridiculous, i have driven this car for maybe 10min so i did not notice any of this, but driving experience was very pleasant except for being too stiff (which dont work well if roads are bumpy, i mean not in terms of comfort but way how fast you can drive), i would rather drive 225/45r17 than 245/35r19 on everyday, on bad roads you can drive faster, it does not jump....
    well vw always provide decent cars and it is more expensive for a reason.

    as for hyundai, try to use wipers above 210-220kmh, they dont work, they probably fit regular motor to save money, in this part you can see it is not up to level with golf gti/r which comes with a price

    Well, no denying that VW makes better thought cars, but with either i30n or Megane you will have 3 times the fun of driving Golf R.

    Doesn't matter if your car makes 100-200 in 20, 15, or 10 seconds you will do it 3 times and it's becoming boring. It's all about how the car handles in corners, how it makes you feel, VAG cars are really "digital" in many ways and this isn't cool.

    The guy I bought Renault from was actually salesguy at Toyota. So part of the deal was test drive in Yaris :D

    It's great fun car, but it would be bad as daily car (manual gearbox, only 2 seats). For 2nd car it's a great toy. Plus me being 177cm tall I was almost touching roof with my head. Sitting position is ridiciolously high.

    I hate, hate, hate high sitting position in cars. I don't get why people want to sit high, the lower the better.
