I love how the GTI has German engineering. It is a car fit for the Nurburgring. Highway speed can shoot from 55-85 mph at a drop of a hat. It has a good sound when reving through higher rpm. It has styling cues of the 3-door Audi S3. I love letting onlookers hear the turbo spool up and whistle. BME 3-Series drivers won't know what just flew past them. This is truely the poor man's Porsche Boxster.
The turbo, seats, Monsoon stereo, interior lights, tiptronic trans, 17" wheels, sport suspension, practicality with the hatch, German design, and nice exhaust note.
Give it a stronger armrest, less creaks, double wishbone in for the rear wheels, R32 breaks, and a better engine sound at idle.
