The twins tie for first and get 25/25 in fun to drive, which is really all I care about.
Excuse crappy pics. Should be online in a week or so.

The impressive thing is one can spend almost $40K on a GTI...
That’s as much as a MK7 Golf R cost (or similar) and there is nothing I like more about the MK8 than I did the MK7. C&D doesn’t put much emphasis on the infotainment/UI, but that alone would stop me from buying one.

If I wanted a FWD car with a degree of comfort along with very good performance and handling the Golf would be it for me. True the infotainment system would annoy. However, I would adapt to it in the long run. I'm not a fan of the Veloster. The cheap interior plastics(way below the twins) and the hard ride would turn me off. Further, I've never loved the styling of it. Focusing strictly on hot hatches I think the Golf is the cleanest design. I've never warmed up to the current Civic Type R. I think the new one looks a whole lot better. I really like the styling of my 500 Abarth as well. But I'm done with hot hatches. I'm strictly RWD.
I've put a deposit down for a BRZ but will see if I can actually buy it in March of 22. if it does not come to pass for some reason, I'm going to look at a used Boxster.

I’m doing the opposite, going from a 2008 Boxster rs60 spyder to the brz. I wish I could keep the Boxster but have to sell it for financial reasons and I want a newer car, but it is amazing still. The other day I was driving in the canyons and I left a new bmw m2 in the dust when the road got curvy, only when it straightened out could he catch up! My car is still for sale if you are interested ;)

Your not doing the opposite at all. Why because you are sticking with a RWD low slung sportscar. If you owned a Golf R or a Civic Type R or an AMG hatchback then yes you are clearly switching from FWD based hatch to a Coupe RWD or RWD convertble. What you are doing is going from a more expensive higher maintenance RWD performance vehicle to a less expensive, lower maintenance performance vehicle. The BRZ might not be quite as quick in a strait line. It might not have quite the ultimate cornering power. However it is giving you 99.5% of what you have had but in a much cheaper package to buy and maintain.
