MK4 Golf is one of the worse ones made yes, but still drives better than a EG Civic, I've even had people who drive K20 EG/EKs etc say same thing, and all they own are Civics. Had a EG Civic and my MK3 Golf GTI was so much more nicer to drive etc... Held road better! More feedback, back to the driver etc...
Any Nathan, you said a Honda Torque, power graph. We will just say power graph as torque figures on a Honda are ****ing shit!
And a VTEC engine doesn't actually really produce much power at all compared to in VTEC etc...
The spike in power when VTEC kicks in is stupid, so they use 4500rpm upwards for VTEC to get power and get it to rev out long to get that!
Plus the price of tuning them is ****ing stupid compared to other cars, yeah NA tuning is expensive, but the scene tax Honda parts carry is ****ing stupid!
Yeah the engines I used to build for a company I worked cost £14k finished, but was a 2.0 redtop engine and the engine would munch a VTEC lump for breakfast! Yeah, had a **** load of work done it etc, but had 220bhp at 3500rpm and that would rev out to 9500rpm. Figures was 290bhp which didn't really matter when the torque figure was at 200ft lb of torque.
Some people are fond of Civics but the craze about them is stupid. Spending £20k on a civic some people when they could go out spend the 10k on buying a manual mk5 Supra Turbo, spending other 10k modifiying it and will have a much nicer car.
The cars do my tits in! On Civics the interior is crap, and the quality is dreadful! Lets use the Rear LCA's where the damper bolts to them, bolts will always snap in there, which is a new rear lca, as usually cant get a replacement bush for the bush the bolt ****s when it snaps.
So, so much better cars out there
