I bought this car after owning two GTIs
with the 1.8t engine. The VR6 gives the
car a completely different feel...much
more stable, but decidely heavier
through turns. The GTI is a fantastic
road car, fun to drive and very solid.
It's part sports car and part work
The 6-speed tranny is smooth and the
seats are very comfortable with lots of
support. I love the body style. This
car also has tremendous utility. You
can flip down the rear seats and put a
lawnmower in back if you need to.
Desperately needs a better sound
system...the Monsoon just doesn't cut
it. Stiffer shocks and springs.
Interior design has
with radio, temp controls are too close
to shifter, armrest is just poorly
