Good Stable Car, Easy To Mod, Fun To Drive. — This was a blast of a car to own. After upgrading the Turbo, LSD, wastegate, Interlooler pipes, Exhaust, APR chip, FK Silerline Coilovers and wheels this car was wicked fun and fast! Go out and get an R32.. same car with AWD!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Bad Arse for lower budget racers..

Cons: If you only buy american   :)

Bang For The Buck, Amazing 4 Cylinder Speed Demon Car — Having this as a teenager's first car was amazing, the 1.8 liter turbo engine feels amazing and will blow away any of your friends who drive deadbeat cars such as civics, v6 mustangs, accords, eclipses, etc. etc... People who don't know much about cars will be amazed when you put your footdown

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: German Engineering!

Cons: a lot of maintainence, depends if you luck out or not

Its A 337!!!! — It's a 337 limited edition... nuff said! tat means bbs rims and recaros Shawn Vanneer built it, solid man builds solid cars. Kinetic's turbo kit with CAI and FMI at 21psi Bosch 640 cc injectors Forged internals and a 20v head with titanium springs Audi brakes (big) with racing pads Depo and hella smoked lenses and hid Body is immaculate, wax it weekly! Great on gas if you drive it easy, and sometimes you wonder if something ripped your gas tank after you rip/race it hard for a while... Bilstein and neuspeed racing cupkit Custom double rear sway bar AHHHHH WORDS CAN'T DISCRIBE MY BABE!!! Its a very very enjoyable car. Rather have this than an m3 or a porsche 911 (cuz its faster than them too) One down side, oil changes every 3000km, but only cuz i love her. She deserves the best of the best!

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

Pros: Fast, safe, handles amazing, powerful

Cons: No subwoofer.... yet...

Gti's Are Amazing Cars, Definitely One Of The Better Cars In The Hot Hatch Market — The 1.8 turbo is a phenomenal motor, a nice balance between power and fuel economy. I avg 25-28mpg in mixed driving. The car handles great in the twisties, it's light, nimble, and the Anti-Slip Regulation allows me to drive in the rain with confidence, wheel spin isn't a big issue. It's also got a lot of creature comforts, When u lock the car from the remote the sunroof and the windows come up. Both windows go down all the way or up all the way with the lightest push of a button. Also the build quality is solid, the interior is roomy, I will definitely have this car for a while

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Balance between performance and function

Cons: Speeding Tickets

Soundsystem (going To Change) — This VW GTI is the best car that has ever been in my Family. We use it every day and it has lots of miles on it, but it never had any problems. It is quick on start and the best city CRUZER i ever used. It is joy for everyone and the little things that are missing, like a high speed or a good soundsystem are able to buy seperate and put in after own. It is a joy car for every age and kind.

Pros: Exeleration

Cons: Top Speed

Awesome Car — DAS AUTO!!!!! I absolutely love this car, but I was warned shortly after I bought it. Very few GTI owners can leave their cars stock. I'm getting ready to drop $1600 on it. LOL It can ALWAYS handle better. The lack of a muffler is pretty awesome as well. This is one of the most solid little cars I've ever seen. Never bought/buying american, prolly not going back to asain. German engineering in da haus!!!!!!

Pros: Everything

Cons: It costs a lot, but its worth it in the quality

Vw Golf Gtianniversary Edition (diesel) — VW Golf GTi Anniversary, VW launched this model in 2002 to celebrate the 25th Birthday of the VW Golf. The car is based on the mk4 GTI with the option of the 1.8T turbo engine (180BHP) or the 1.9 TDI engine delivering 150BHP. The only visual difference between the two models is the rear valance on the petrol model, which has a cut out for the 90mm stainless tailpipe. The diesel follows the VW norm of hiding its twin downswept tailpipes behind the valance. The anniversary edition golf also came with a new interior consisting of aluminium radio surround, GTI embroidered sport seats and a golf ball geear knob. On the outside, the anniversary came with 18" BBS alloy wheels, and was slightly lower than the normal GTI. It also came with Anniversary styled GTI badges both front and rear.

Pros: Great looks and Buld Quality and Great MPG !

Cons: A bit more power would be nice
