Great little car

1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 2dr Hatchback
I bought mine new back in 1998, expecting to keep it a few years.
Almost 14 years later it's still going strong and I still like it.
The good things about it are that it's fast, quick, and nimble.
The seats are form fitting and keep you from moving around.
Repairs have been rare, but fairly expensive when they came.
The strangest one was the replacement of the thermostat, which 1 garage couldn't even find, and that the dealer replaced for $450.
In general, though, it's been very reliable.
The only down side to it is that you feel every bump in the road.
That gets annoying after a while.
Better instrument cluster, especially lighting.
It's very dim at night.
