Great Car! Owned 2000 Golf, 2002 Jetta GLI, 2006 Jetta GLI and now the 2008 GTI and it is the best yet. I went with the 4 door model because i got a kid and it just makes it easier. Love the leather package and the stereo. Oil changes on these cars are expensive so I opted for the dealer package that covers this. Hope I don't have problems with the air conditioner compressor and condenser that has plagued newer vw's.
Steering wheel, 10 airbags, awesome sound system, xenon lights, leather, dsg transmission, paddle shifters easy to use. Sport mode is awesome, fun to drive in.
turbo is mildly tuned, could use some more psi, also exhaust could sund sportier and led taillights...
