Is Lighter and Faster the winning formula?

Although I'm set on getting the Golf R, I don't come from a history of Golf, so this is some new territory for me. Reading into the facts and what we can expect, this 8th Golf is expected to get lighter by 110 LBS, an overboost feature on the GTI making it more hybrid-like. When it comes to performance, do you guys think this is enough for VW to out do the competition?

I'm hoping some experienced VW Golf owners will leave feedback!

Depends on what you're expecting from the weight reduction because it may not be substantial like a tune. You can calculate an approximate if you had the hp and weight of the 8th gen Golf by finding out the power-to-weight ratio.
