Should I be talked out of giving up on this automotive dream?

Image from you know who!

So, a lot of us have weird automotive dreams. Mine is to get a Mk IV Jetta just like what I drove in high school (and it’s green!) But I’m wondering if maybe there are better options out there. The Mk IV Jetta seems to be a bit...spotty when it comes to accepting performance mods due to the usual Teutonic engineering quirks. Also, it doesn’t seem to get a lot of respect.

See here for an example of what I’m talking about

I’m wondering if maybe I should aim for an 05-09 Legacy instead. Despite being midsize they’re not much larger than a Jetta, they look better than the same-era Impreza, in fact they look good either as a sedan or wagon, and several Opponauts have them.
