This car is pure German engineering. It feels, handles great. The 180hp 1.8T is the best motor I've driven. And Ive driven lots of sports cars. For the money You cant beat this car. I paid 18144 for a 2002 GTI base package. I comes loaded without adding the 3 available packages.
Performance, Handling, and very quite at highway speeds
