I love your reviews.

I drove the Golf R last week and it was nice but it didn’t compare to my RS4. I was wondering, of all the cars you have driven recently, anything you would suggest that might be a reasonable replacement for this Audi RS4 monster?

Gerard obviously loves the horsepower and torque of his vehicle’s 4.2-liter V8, but the time has come to dump his German pocket rocket, which he identifies as a 2007 model. The 292 horses under the hood of the Volkswagen Golf R didn’t set Gerard’s heart on fire (or maybe the package was too Volkswagen), so what’s a reader to do?

Rather than have TTAC brass tell him what to do, we’re turning this question over to the minds of the Best and Brightest.

Put yourself in Gerard’s car-buying shoes and weigh in. With Golf R-level money ready to spend, what should this man buy?

    Based on the 2 cars mentioned, the first answer was the best. FoRS.

    Buy a Chev SS. It will give you a thrill and if you take care of it, it might become something with more value in the future.

    Unless it is physically falling apart, keep the RS4 and invest on the maintenance. I can't think of a car today that is better than that RS4.
