Was Great Now Its "caca" Or Is It "ka Ka' — Bought it in 2000 with 14000 miles at 90,000 tranny went!! went to European motors in Los Angeles and it lasted exactly the 12,000 miles warranty yes the 2nd tranny went out as well, RIGHT!!! I have been driving a stick for almost 30 years so what can i say to this,. The first time i went to the dealer and they offered me $2500.00 as a trade in on a new one, I laughed. Never again will i buy this German car made in Mexico, What a freaking JOKE. Buy all the extended warranties you can!!!

Teutonic Wonder! — I owned this car for a while after first getting my license. Even with the standard 12V 2.8L V6 the performance was impressive, but after adding some Neuspeed Components, including a 8PSI Supercharger, the performance went to sports car territory. This was probably my most favorite car of all time. I would LOVE to have another one today!

Pros: Fast, reliable, teutonic build quality and ride

Cons: None!

Fastish, Cheap To Run And Reliable. — As a standard Golf GTi, it handles like shxt and too heavy for the stock 150BHP engine. Since I had it I've changed the whole suspension system to a coilover kit, chipped it to 200 bhp and with a sport cat conversion. Now the car handles like a dream which you can feel when it starts to slide and can be easily corrected instead of ending in a ditch. Also with the Sport Cat (+10 bhp) & 200 bhp Revo Chip it can now pull this heavy lump with great respond time. All in all, I'm still keeping it until I'm totally bored of it and it's still in my good books.

Pros: Handling and fairly cheap to run compare to what's been done to it.

Cons: No traction control on this particular year of make.  Some say it’s a bad thing but I see it as a good thing, as it feels raw!

I Love This Car, Couldnt Of Had A Better First Car. — This is my First car and its perfect for me. I recommend this car to almost anyone who is looking for a fun and practical first car. Or if you looking for a fun every day driver, that gets mpg. But if you really like this car and the way it handles but you want a little more luxury I would recommend you to purchase a Mk4 gti Vr6.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car to learn how to drive a manual in.

Cons: The interior could of had more luxurious features.

The GTI line peaked at the mk7.5 model in terms of overall value. It’s got the best silhouette and cabin design in my opinion. And there’s plenty of technology to pair with the exceptional driving exp... Read More
