I love fast hatchbacks and the 1.8t GTI is by far the best. One of the biggest
factors in purchasing it is all the aftermarket support it has. The stock GTI is
a fantastic car in every respect, increadable build quality, top notch material
content -first class all the way. It is so easy to take it to a whole other realm
performance-wise - one that will terrorize Biff and Buffy in their 330i BMW.
After only spending $2,200 in aftermarket modifications I've got something
that outhandles many sports cars, and it has gone from a stock 180 HP to
240 with a few engine modifications - this car is an absolute blast to drive
and extremely dependable.
Fantastic out of the box in every respect with increadable aftermarket
support if you want to modify it.
Make 4motion an option! That way I'd take it to 300 HP!
