Is the Golf R a bit overpriced and overrated ? It was slower than a Jetta https://www.caranddriver.com/feature...ning-lap-2019/ BTW those tires are a no cost option. You can swap the all seasons for those FREE. The clutch can barely handle stock power levels and cars like the STI with a 20 year old plus EJ engine beats it too, never mind the CTR or N. It can barely shake off a GTI but they charge 40 grand for it.
EDIT: I am not sure why some of you are saying the R came with all seasons. I don't think that was the case. It had summer rubber but just not as good as the Hankooks.
Also, obviously a click-bait title but in all seriousness, LL times aside it isn't all that much quicker in the straight line either. Check these out, the 5-60 times are about the same, quarter mile and trap speed difference isn't all that.
