"After you read my review you are all going to think VW paid me to say this: Nothing could be farther from the truth. I bought my 2010 GTI 2 dr in Candy White w/DSG paddle shifter- equipped Automatic. This car is sleek, stealthy and a head-turner when freshly washed. I make up excuses daily to drive it as frequently as possible. This little hot hatch is truly fun to drive. The turbo is responsive & the shifting is absolutely spot on when using the manual mode. It handles superbly, reminiscent of a souped up go- kart. The exhaust note is just perfect as is the sound emanating from the resonated air box under the hood. I can't get good gas mileage w/this pocket rocket. A true & true fun car!
Steering wheel looks & features, the DSG dual clutch automatic, Dynaudio sound system sounds superb and last but not least the Bi-Xenon adaptive headlights are magnificent. The lighting capability cuts through the dark like a knife.
Power features/memory for the cloth Interlagos cloth seats. dual-climate control would be great as well as push button start. Other than that the car is perfect.
