I'm at 6,000 miles on my 2003 1.8t GTI and
so far it's been a great ride. Fuel ecomony is
good but does take a hit if you "drive" the
car. But it's worth the hit trust me. I get a
smile on my face every time I'm behind the
wheel. The 1.8t engine is suberb and
delivers plenty of power when needed. The
car handles like a dream especially on the
twisty roads here in New England. The
Monsoon sound system is sounds awesome
and delivers some serious bass for a factory
stereo. Over all it's everything I expected!!!!!!!
1.8t engine, the Monsoon Sound System,
the storage system for the back headrests
when the back seats are folded down,
power mirros, blowng by Hondas on the
road with a smile. The sound of the turbo
suckin in the air!!
Cup holders that don't turn off the stereo
when you hit a bump!!!! Other than that
