I haven't had my GTI for very long, but it is a great little car.
The build quality is perfect, it's fun to drive, the features look like the should be in a more expensive car.
The DSG takes some getting used to, but the paddle shifters are a lot of fun to play with.
If you're looking for a quality car, that is fun to drive, look no further.
If you're looking for a stoplight racer, then look somewhere else.
This car is about combining great features into a great car.
The suspension, engine, transmission, all work seamlessly to create a great driving experience.
I have two cars, one for 4 months of summer in Chicago, lol. The other is my GTI.

A little more oomph out of the engine, without sacrificing the refinement. Maybe a couple of thousand cheaper on the top of the line.
