Still fun to drive after 5 years!

1997 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback
Review
This is my second GTI, after 92 GTI 16v. Compared to old GTI this one is much better in every way, except that is's heavier. The VR6 is still very fun to drive and stealthy looking as always - attracting no attention so fast driving is still possible. I have no mechanical problems to report. Do get 16" wheels and tires and better suspension - this car needs firmer suspension - everything else on it is fine.
Favorite Features
VR6 engine is great, lots of torque and power and likes to spin too. With more open exaust the engine sounds are racy. I also like hatchback's practicality and utter invisibility vs. say Corvette and your local cops.
Suggested Improvements
As mentioned before do budget for firmer suspension and bigger wheels.
