2006 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


This is my second Volkswagen GTI and I must say they get a bad rap on the speed and handling sides. With a straight (no cat) exhaust system and a set of TEIN coils I'm able to hustle Nissan 350Zs and stock Honda S2000s to the point of spin in the moutians. All while being able to clock repeatable 14.4s @ 94 mph at the local drag strip. Try to find that elsewhere with heated seats and 150 mph stability in other cars for $350 a month.

Best Features

The T U R B O! I also like the dial for the sunroof and infinitely variable level controls for the HVAC.

Worst Features

Please give me an independent suspension, I'm tired of spinning out when the road surface gets bad.
