There is no substitute for a fully
equipped GTI. While the R32 is a
little much for most drivers, the Vr6
offers the experienced driver power
and comfort, while showing taste and
refinement missing from Japanese and
American sport hatchbacks. This car is
most certainly not a toy, and is
absolutely inappropriate for a first
car. This car gives incredible
feedback, and a driver must have
enough experience to be able to
interpret what the car is telling him
to operate this one safely. Having
owned each previous version of the
GTI, I can say that this is decidedly
familiar, yet greatly improved.
Drivers of MkIII VW's who miss the
hard sporty suspension of last
generation will LOVE this car.

Instant street credibility-nothing to
prove. Everyone knows the GTI.
None. Perfectly balanced for a daily
driver with the ability to gallop for
a bit of fun.
