Don’t be silly the 500 quid a year tax unless you buy an early 05 is just stupid our running costs halved when the r32 was upgraded to an rs3

Wouldn't say you are mad. Having owned both, they are both brilliant cars but the R32 definitely has the special feeling over the MK7 GTI. MK7 will definitely be the quicker and far cheaper to run but I don't personally think you would see any depreciation on a MK5 R32 now so could be a good investment if you keep it in good shape!

Mk5s are far less likely to be an investment over the mk4 due to huge build numbers
