I had a tuned 2016 Golf R. I now have a 2016 TDI wagon with a Kerma tune, not yet a big turbo yet.. I have H&R springs, a rear sway bar, GTI brakes and sticky 235/18 tires. I have grown to love the car's ability to slice thru traffic and pass on the highway but I do miss the noise and drama of the R. The fuel mileage I now get is double what I got in the R at the same speeds but do miss the nutty acceleration. Anyway.. a tuned MK7 TDI makes a very good commuter and daily driver that will cover ground almost as quickly as the R but without as much excitement. I was shopping used Audi S3's when VW began selling 2016 TDI's here in Mexico for half price, I once owned a MK6 TDI wagon and the MK7 much better from a handling and daily driving perspective, especially with the drivers assistance package. I'm now shopping used ND Miata's to turbo and track.
