2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Put some real seats in the car; build for 5'8" and under. With seat all the way back, shifting/steering too far away. Seats are rock hard and bolsters are right angles to the seat bottom. Some engineer is having a good laugh over his cup holder design. Remote oil filter would be nice, so you donít have to take the car apart to get at the oil filter. No way not to spill oil out of the filter when removing it. Armrest is in the way. After working on the seats,

Suggested Improvements

I know why the interior squeaks; the trim panels on the seats were put on so poorly, that half of their connections were broken off, imaging what I cant see! Needs Boost gauge, real fogs. Some turbo lag, but not to bad.
