The 20th Anniversary GTI is a pleasure to drive on long trips. The seats are very adjustable. I don't get tired of driving it on short trips either. The only thing I wished it had is a center arm rest. The performance is fantastic in every way. It handles like it's on rails. It can easily out accelerate most cars on the road today. All this, and it still gets 30 mpg on the highway.
The engine and 6 speed transmision work very well together. You would be hard pressed to find a nice match like this elsewhere.
Like I said earlier, the only thing that is missing is a center arm rest. I found that people have installed an arm rest from a different model. It still looks stock with these pieces installed also.
