2003 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Not only does this car look stunning
bathed in Reflex Silver, shod with 17
inch wheels and dealer-tinted windows,
but it has all the features and
amenities of cars costing much more.
The only thing I find more moving than
all the luxury and refinement that
surrounds me, is the 1.8 liter turbo
mated with a slick-shifting manual
transmission. Press firmly on the go
pedal and you hear a slightly-audible
whooshing sound issuing from the engine
bay as your turbo rapidly spools up.
What happens next is nothing less than
startling. You are pressed firmly into
your leather seatback as you rocket
down the open road. EMAIL FOR MORE
