GTI vs. 325i? No Contest
By dgb on


2007 Volkswagen GTI 4dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


The VW GTI is more fun to drive than the BMW 325i and it holds four comfortably with room for the dog in the hatch. It even costs about $15,000 less than a similarly-equipped BMW. It is larger and cheaper than the Audi A3. It is almost as much fun to drive as the Mini Cooper S, but sized for non-hobbits. It has the best transmission available - period. I have had it for only one month and 800 miles, but it has no rattles, squeaks, or problems of any kind. Its gas mileage has been 27 mpg combined using manual shift/sport mode and a heavy foot. It gets 30+ on the highway.

Best Features

The DSG transmission, leather sport seats, iPod port in the glovebox, and how GTI sightings in New England are rare (no AWD? Who cares?).

Worst Features

None, this is the best designed car I have ever owned.
