Just bought my GRAY 09 GTI this morning. Didn't go for the DSG, which costs 1200 more. Like the manual gear, just like in Germany. Very responsive and fast. the suspension is hard so you might feel a little bit bumpy. Like the SUNROOF and 18" all season tire. 24K is fair enough for such a car.
Power SUNROOF, 18" alloy wheels with all season tire, Sat radio
Make the seat a little bit wider , it could be not that comfortable for a big guy.
