    any of them worth a shit?

    im rethinking my new car again, want a hatchback for sound system purposes.
    only one i can think of that isnt a fwd slow pos is a vw golf r32.
    am i overlooking one?

    i even thought about a subaru legacy gt wagon, saw a new one at work and it was dead sexy.

    cant say that ive seen an s3. wouldnt it have the same issues as an s4 though? expensive as hell upkeep and maintenance and it tears up alot.

    and i thought bmw 1 series werent coming to america.

    im looking for around 30k range. ill prolly be dropping 10k cash down payment so it really doesnt matter.

    because subs sound like shit in a trunk.
    alot easier to set up your sound stage in a hatchback, plus i just kinda like them. ;)

    previously i had decided on a volvo s40 t5 awd, but i still kinda wanted a bmw 330xi.
    for the last month or so ive started getting back into car audio real heavy and its making me want a hatch.

    so you are torn between choosing the only worthy hatch on the market and getting a nice refined volvo? Id say screw audio and get the volvo. Ive heard plenty of systems of wide varieties in trunks, and the only ones that sound bad are ones that are way too loud and make the trunk rattle like its about to fall off. if you insulate and not put ina giant sub itll sound fine.

    Best bass I've ever heard by a LONG shot was in my friend's Lexus ES300 sedan. He dynomatted his whole trunk and he gets really clear strong bass.
