I bought is car to run errands and bang around in saving my primary vehicle from those lovely people who ding your doors and scrap your bumpers. I wanted something very small but big enough for me to fit in. Well this car is small , fun to drive around the city and as for me ,a 6 foot guy, I got 6 inches of head room. It is like my own little street legal Go-Kart. Now I want a new one!!!
I bought this Golf with 52k miles in dec/o2, the car now has 69k miles on it 7months later, no problems @ all, I run synthetic oil in it... the car is very reliable... as a commuter, or weekend race project, add another $10,000 or so, & it's performance & style will be on par with will a bimmer my car has many of the aftermarket upgrade options avail... I added leather seats inside & a 7" in-dash dvd/tv system... exterior, upgraded all the lighting, lowered the car 2" & have a set of borbet wheels.. performance wise I have a Neuspeed Supercharger,50Hp shot Nitrous Express , aftermarket exhaust & many other goodies... wwww.vwvortex.com for more info on vw's
