This car is awesome! I had a 1999 Jetta Wolfsburg Edition and that was my baby until this. The 1.8T engine in my '05 GTI is very responsive. I plan on keeping this car until it's in the ground. Hopefully that'll be a very long time.
The engine and comfort of the car is great.
The only thing I would say is take the armrest in the center out or make it removeable.
