I have only owned my GTI for three days now but I am really enjoying it. I was not a huge fan of VWs before my wife wanted to go look at them when we seen this car and drove it I had to have it. I first thought what am I doing dropping this much money on a 2-door hatchback but after driving it more and feeling the performance this little thing has it is worth it. If you are thinking of looking at one drive it before you look at the sticker price.
My favorite features are the 200hp engine, the decent gas mileage, the 6 speed auto trans mission with shifting paddles on the steering wheel, and the speed / handling of this little beauty.
Well, I just spent about five minutes trying to think of thing that I would improve on this car but couldn't. Maybe a more varied options package from VW instead of just two would be good.
