Review

While I had a terrible experience ordering a custom car (it took forever), I am glad I waited. Although the GTI may not be the fastest sport compact on the road, it's low end torque makes it more fun in day to day driving conditions. The ride is superb with a sporty feel. The car does not show it's true colors until it is on the highway. It is really an autobon car. I live in Colorado and can drive up in the mountains all the way in fifth gear. Those big 17's are really bad on snow though (even with ESP, traction control, locking diff, and front wheel drive). Overall though, I love this car.

Favorite Features

LOW END TORQUE!!!!!

Suggested Improvements

Could use a little less body roll. European car of this caliber ought to have HID headlights.
