2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I owned an Audi TT 225 Q and I loved the car. However, after having owned a new GTI 2.0T, just like the Audi A3, I don't know why anyone would put forth the money for the Audi. The Audi, by comparison is cramped and expensive. When I purchased the TT, I didn't spring for the DSG transmission, but after having it in the VW, I never want another car without it. It shifts much faster than any manual I have ever owned. I loved the TT, but the new GTI is much more fun to drive and has a much lighter feel due to the electromechanical steering. This is an A3 for much less. It is definetely worth investigating. I agree with another reviewer here on this site, the stereo is cheap and not very good.
DSG, xenon headlights, interior lighting, wheels, and hatchback utility.
It needs a 4Motion option and a V6 option. Also, a royal blue would look fantastic on this particular car, I beleive.
