2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
This is my 4th VW and 2nd GTI and I have to say that the fit and finish are great, and the performance is what I expected. After driving a Saturn SL2 for 165,000 miles this car's steering is amazingly responsive, the 6-speed gearbox takes a little getting use to, and the brakes do stop you very quickly. Time to go run Redwood and have another Porsche for breakfast!
Everything about my GTI.
There is way too much space between the wheel wells. I know that VW raised it ¾ inch to make the feds happy, but it looks dumb. Drop me please!
