2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

I don't really feel like typing out a long review, but I've owned an '03 GTI before this and the jump from a previous generation to the current generation is so substantial that it's as if they rebuilt the entire car from the ground up. The chassis' rigidity is superb and the motor is definitely worthy of the awards it has been receiving, both for around the town and even on a track. While this may not be a performer like the STi or Evo, it holds it's own quite well. If it's stock performance really bugs you enough, there are many tuner choices for just a simple ECU upgrade that pumps the car up ~50 horsepower and ~80 torque. I've no complaints with the car at all other than no lsd.

Favorite Features

the exterior, awesome interior, the wheels look great once the car is lowered, and I truly love this motor.

Suggested Improvements

More power never hurt anyone, nor did an lsd... Apart from that the car needs a better stereo and to be about an inch to an inch and a half lower.
