Not Everybodys Cup Of Tea As I Assume, It's A Vw Thing... You Wouldn't Understand! :] —

Might be ageing but still a fine piece of '80s German engineering I love it! Top of the range GTI 16V in sought after diamond silver colour. Power- : -steering, - locks, -windows, sunroof plus a massive boot! The car thanks to being so light and short wheel based is very agile and nimble, very neutral through the bends with predictable reactions. Acceleration for a 20year old car with no major upgrades is fantastic 0-60 is about 8s, tested top speed 130-135mph is also respectable for a car of this age with only 1.8 engine. Disc brakes all round no ABS though, handbrake is disappointing. I have lowered the car some 40mm and it now has koni suspension so it handles nicely thou the comfort has suffered as the roads aren't so great around London - the car is alergic to high speed bumps :) Ok so it doesn't look as fab as all the new shiny cars, but I still think it is cool as there aren't as many around now which makes it stand out from the crowd but not too much. Oh, and it can still smoke a lot of the newer cars off the lights as it has very short gear ratio and is much lighter than most of them. Costs are another plus, cheap insurance, cheap service and parts, fuel economy isn't great but you can live with it 28(city)-36(m-way)mpg The car is an absolute star! My little pocket rocket, aka. the Silver Bullet 2 :) Is this car fun to drive? On a scale from 0 to 10 it would score 11! (now honestly, considering all the ups and downs I have had with this car I would easily award it with a solid 8)

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

Pros: cheap, fun, quick

Cons: parts are getting hard to find, attracts unwanted attention (criminal) :(

Hooptie — I have a Ferrari red 1991 Volkswagen Jetta GTX 5 spd. It's pretty quick for a 2 litre. It has racy big bolster Recaro seats, aftermarket rims, sport suspension and soon to add to the list, a burbling custom exhaust.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Quick, gets looks

Cons: VW build quality...

My Hubby Car — Very fast for what it was! He had a chip and exhaust. He drove it to the ground and then sold it to our buddy who fixed it and also drove it to the ground!

Pros: good handling and quick

Cons: broke down alot but I think that was the driver

For the features you get in terms of tech alone this generation GLI is a great buy. But then you add in the engine/transmission (and a 6MT!!!) and it’s a no brainer. Read More
