2008 GLI is the best one yet!

2008 Volkswagen GLI 4dr Sedan w/Prod. End 04/08 (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I have driven my 2008 GLI just over 5000 miles, including just over 3000 from Atlanta to San Francisco. It hasn't used any oil and I was averaged 25.75 mpg with both city and highway driving. It is more comfortable than the '07 that I had and it is so great to have the cruise control back on the turn signal stalk. I do miss the dual zone Climatronic, but I was easily able to stay comfortable during my drive. The seats are supportive enough that I never really tired even after one day of being in it for almost 14 hours straight. I couldn't believe that I was not more fatigued after that. It is fast, fun and I think pretty economical on gas. It is a real winner!
Cruise control, premium sound system, 6 speed manual, HUGE trunk, good fuel economy, great performance, good road feel, comfortable seats.
Bring back the dual-zone climatronic, headlight washers and 115 volt outlet.
