I have owned my '91 GTI for about ten
months now. In my opinion, it is one of
the coolest cars on the road. It's a
lot of fun to drive and it gets the
looks. When you drive this car it feels
like you're driving a 5-speed go-kart.
It's handling is excellent, and the
performance is just as good. As nice as
the car may sound so far, be aware of
the usual "Volkswagen problems". Trust
me, you will have problems, and VWs
aren't cheap to fix. You will have fun
with this car, but try not to redline
it off every green light, otherwise you
will be flooded with repair bills.
There aren't really any special
features that i can say i favor, but i
do have the original Recaro interior
which has much more comfortable seats.
If you own or plan on owning a stock
(factory) GTI, i suggest you lower the
suspension to Eurospec height. You will
be able to take a corner like you never
