      You're trying to tell me that a good example of a Rallye costs the same as a nice E30 M3?
      I can get a nice Rallye for around 6.000 Euro or less; the M3 is going to be at least 13.500 Euro for one that hasn't been raped.

      you have to remember the Golf Rallye didn't come to the U.S.

      How much are federalized versions of the Rallye going for?

      I haven't seen a Rallye sold for less asking price than $15,000. That's territory for a pretty clean M3.

      It would have been less than 30,000pounds to own all 4 of those.
      Best article yet?

      Good to know... that makes my decision that much easier. I could probably make a decent bit of money on one when/if I decide to bring it to the US.

      Having driven 3 of the 4 cars...they are all unique and special in their own way.
      Shame we never got the 20v version of the urQuattro in the US...also a shame we never got the Rallye Golf. It would have been far too pricey in a world of $28k Corrados, but it truly is a special car. Amazing what VW was able to do with the humble Mk2 chassis. The Rallye wasn't quick in stock form, though--take the Corrado G60 and add weight + AWD driveline frictional losses and you get a relatively sedate car in stock form. Once modified, though--it's quite special.

      Great write up!! All of them are really cool. E30 M is one of my favorite BMWs, I want to pick one up someday. The Quattro is another reason I really want Turbo 5 power + quattro!! That Rallye is my fav older looking VW, mk2 chassis is quite cool. The Delta is definitely my fav Lancia. its just really cool.
      I would totally want to cruise and haul ass in all of these!!

      Believe it or not the M3 is the easiest to DD now IMO. Extremely reliable and lack of drama, decent fuel mileage, great parts availability and upgrade support. Plus it'll pull every car nut out of a crowd guaranteed - any of these would do that though.

      To answer your question concerning federalization it is going to depend a bit upon where the car is registered. My Tristar which has the same level of inspection necessary for federalization is about a $2-4k proposition for the overall safety inspection and the emissions inspection requirements varies by state.
      If you are in Arizona you need to be able to reach the level of air-quality of a similar vehicle by the same manufacturer (Rallye Golf is equal to an 8V GTi of the same vintage; Tristar is equivalent to a Vanagon of the same time frame) regardless of the engine or fuel management.
      Obviously Kalifornia is a different beast but I won't go there. The typical surcharge for emissions testing in that state can range from $1-3k depending upon what needs to be done.

      I wouldn't have to worry about the federalization though. I'd be bringing the car back in a few years when the 1989 is 25yrs old.

      Great reading, I want that magazine!
      I have just picked up my second Rallye, and I love them, they're the best the MK2 can be in my book;

      too bad you'd never be able to bring it in to the country. there is only one legal Rallye in the US, all of the rest of them are illegal imports.

      am i the only one who's driven all 4 cars in the article?

      You and quite a few others, and that could have an effect on your plans to flip at high prices

      Having read that article, it really seems that the BMW is the best chassis among them. Oddly enough though, it's the thought of the comfortable Audi with that 5-cyl motor which gets me the most excited. Plus, I love its chunky looks.
      What exactly does the word "Evo" mean?

      I am not in any way a fan of most VW's. I think that the ralleye Golf looks dumb. I don't like the flares and I think the MK2 looks better with the clean lines. Sorry.
      The M3 is as expected, and I came away from this article having a greater appreciation for the Audi, wasn't really a fan until this article. But the one I would take is the one here
