2006 Volkswagen GTI New 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


I just got mine June 9th and I love it. I fell for these GTI's this year at the Pittsburgh Auto Show, and was luckily able to get the numbers right to buy. The Black Magic is awesome, it looks like a piece of charcoal up close. My Fast has come back and we are living happily ever after (It left me 6 years ago when I bought a 1996 Civic DX). I think if Apple made a car they would integrate some of these little details.

Best Features

The torque, when you need it, it's just there. Those little red lights that stay on at night. The plaid interior. The exhaust. That strip of red piping on the grille. The gorilla gear in the back. The headlights are ignorantly vibrant. The rims. This car just makes me believe in it.

Worst Features

The radio, but for different reasons than other reviews. The display is bad during the day, and an iPod input is a must these days. I understand though this is a driver's car, and the road is to be paramount. This is the only thing I would change tomorrow if I could
