Love my first brand new Volkswagen GTI

2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
Since I was young, my dad always has driven a Volkswagen. As I got older his passion turned into my passion for VWs, espicially the golf. I've owned a 1987 4 door golf, a 1985 Jetta, a 2000 gti vr6, and now the new 2006 gti. I can't express how satisfied I am with my new car. I traded in my 2000 vr6 for the 2.0t and had doubts, not anymore. The car is absolutely everything I wanted , from the fit and finish to the performance, it is awesome. VW has come a long way and finally did it right once again.
Performance from the 2.0T is my favorite. Torque like the vr6, top end like the 16v, win-win. 270hp, 303ft-lb with chip, I can't wait.
The only improvements, maybe the seats, maybe a little wider at the thighs. But for the average size guy/girl, probably fine. (interlagos cloth)
