I haven't ridden in an RSX Type-S, but I have been in the base RSX. If it's anything like the base...the VR6 will feel like a stump-pulling muscle car that turns rubber into dust coating on your fender well. So, if you can, drive both! The Golf has a really solid German feel to it, too.
the RSX-S will stomp on a VR6, given that the rsx-s driver can drive well...the GTi VR6 being a 6 cylinder obviously has more torque which makes "everyday stoplight to stoplight" driving more appealing but it uses more gas. If i were to pick a GTi, I'd chose the 1.8t due the amount of performance you can get out of it for so little money, w/ a 450$ APR or Garret chip upgrade they can run mid to high 14's giving a RSX-S a run for their money....the regular GTI is a 5 speed unless you get the 337(droooollll) which is a 6 speed
so why are we still posting this vs. that? i mean its a really dumb question. look at testing 1/4's and you'll find the faster car (rsx is fastest in its class anyway, so the question is even more moot)
