2005 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


The 2005 Volkswagen GTI is absolutely amazing. My previous car was a mid-90's BMW 325i and let me tell you, it's just as luxurious as the bimmer, minus the power seats but hey now I have heated seats for the winter :). The car is quiet and comfortable but upon demand, the power is there to put a smile on your face. Handling? Absolutely amazing! These cars love the twisties! Now its competitors are the likes of the SRT-4, WRX, and RSX. The car is more comfortable and enjoyable then the rest, now power is an issue but there is a solution. If you don't care about warranty issues, chipping it is the best the best thing you can do! With APR software I beat modded RSX's,SRT-4's, and WRX's. Two words,buy it!

Best Features

The leather heated seats, turbo motor, great factory suspension, and good power. Overall this is a great car!

Worst Features

If your not worried about warranty issues: APR or GIAC software(Increased to 215 BHP, and roughly 250 Ft.Lbs of Torque!).
