I love this car!! Traded an IS300 for an 2007 Armada (Gas Pig). Traded for the 08'GTI. This is the funnest car I've ever had! Stock car is fast and handles great! Love the DSG. I Added a APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade and this little rocket now has 252 hp and 303 ft- lb of torque! I took a long road trip and averaged 28.2 mpg at 90 mph. I've read about the VW having cockpit rattles, however I haven't noticed any. As a 37 year old single parent, I wanted something sporty and family friendly and the GTI was the best fit. 6 Airbags, seating for 5, good leg room in the back. Added the rear storage shelf under the hatch. I feel 18 again and with the Stage 1 upgrade, I make up reasons to leave the house!!
Sirius radio, DSG,Xenon headlights, 6 airbags, Go with Autobahn package for the $$.
Automatic shifts to soon. HVAC needs to blow harder.
