Damn, it's fast!

2004 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
The whole process of getting the car was a breeze. The dealership was very very friendly, not pushy at all, like the Nissan and Toyota dealerships here in the Pasadena area. Now, back to the car... this little hatchback is fast! I can barely notice the turbo lag. It comes with a lot of standard features: ABS, side and curtain airbags, full spare. The quality is superb. I know you have probably heard about how VWs are unreliable, but they have had all the problems worked out on the 04 models. I've had this car for almost 3 months now, and I am still very much in love with it. Get it, you won't regret it.
Favorite Features
The gauges are blue, very racy. Sunroof, Monsoon, 17 inch wheels, acceleration, handling, and quality.
Suggested Improvements
VW should work on fuel economy. I get about 17 mpg in the city (partly due to the way I drive), and around 29 on freeways (which is fine, I think). The front and rear valences should come painted.
