Pros

Love to hear the sound of 20lbs of boost being expelled.

Cons

A $50 tank gets me ~250kms

25

Car — Performance - Decent for an affordable car. Build Quality - Every stock bushing=Garbage Appearance - Silver exterior, shaved, debadged, slammed. Black leather interior Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage sucks, especially when your cat is gone. Repairs are few and far between, but expensive. Fun Factor - Always gotta love the sound of a blow off valve

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Initial cost, tunability, upgradability, fun to drive.

Cons

Expensive to maintain, sloppy factory suspensiion.

25

A Great First Car, But Nothing More. — Great performance potential. Lots of tuning help and upgrades available. Smokes Lexus IS250's, and Benz SLK230 Kompressors when the GTI is chipped. Very cheap to own, expensive to maintain, fun to drive. When it works, that is. Constantly needs repair work. Handles kinda sloppy with stock suspension.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

handling, performance after mod

Cons

didn't buy the later model for the 6speed manual T.T

35

Fun To Drive — for the 2001 model it comes with 150hp/150tq its was pretty good before i modded it but.... it was still slow to me but after modding the car its very fun to drive, fast, and attacks the corner with no problem at all. and its a nice sleeper car some people underestimate this car and what it can do with some mods done to it and i can have a friend vouch also cause he drive a '05 MK4 GTI and I saw a race with him vs a Audi S4 stock and he won that race

fast, fun, not american

Cons

one thing goes bad, expect more

25

Greatest Car I've Driven And Owned So Far — performance - pretty zoomy from the factory, once the car hits 100k things break and it gets pretty costly, but a beautiful, small, light weight car, gets great gas mileage and is very fun to drive, i'd recommend it to anyone

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Top Speed

Cons

Expensive Maintenance

25

Total Value High — Albeit random electrical issues, this car has gobs of torque, it's SOLID and at 120k miles still behaves as friskily as the day we brought her home. Extremely versatile and roomy, and a breeze to drive in traffic or at 150mph :D

Pros

great acceleration/handling  and interior/exterior styling

Cons

can be a little pricey if something goes wrong

25

Great Car — vr6 engine gives great acceleration in any circumstance. factory sport suspension wins everytime in a mountainous slalom type course. no creaks or rattles. everything sounds as stable as a new vehicle except its 7 yrs old. the exterior looks great with its light gold paint job, black background headlights and blacked out side markers and side turn signals. factory 5 spoke 17" rims and a great sounding borla catback exhaust. upgraded neuspeed ignition wires, sirius satellite radio, jvc head unit, polk audio speakers, eclipse 4 channel amp, kicker 750.1 powering a kicker 12" L7.
