I Loved This Car — this car is sweet as hell, the 6 speed manual and that turbo kick ass, suspention and the 18" BBS wheels makes lots diff in the drive, as long u keep RPM around 3.1-3.3K u can burn rubber even in the 3rd gear, i toped 135 mph and it was solid, did corner at speeds around 75 mph and the car was solid , dounts were funn to do with this car

Pros: everthing including the sound system

Cons: has few problems so u had to take it to the dealers few times

The Verdict's Not Yet In. —

This is a new car to me and as it is my first FWD car I am very much trying to get used to it, I think it has potential but it also scares me to push it hard. I'm expecting that this coming summers Street X season should help get me a little more comfortable with a high hp ff layout handling wise. In a straight line the car is great, plenty of pull, the 6 sp is one of the best shifting transmissions I have ever used. After participating in 2 street-x events so far this season I would say I am more comfortable with this car. first event I took 2nd place in my class (street touring fwd) and second event I took first place. it does have a tendency to understeer if the tires are cold and under heavy braking. however once the tires are warm it grips well even lifting the rear inner tire through turns causing a mild oversteer. The upgraded brakes are amazing. I am happier with this car than I first thought I would be but in my overall oppinion it still dosn't touch on RWD or AWD in terms of what I am used to. After my 3rd and last auto-x for the 2013 season I am no longer fighting the car, driver modification was what was needed. I will be keeping this car for a long time to come with plenty more power and performance mods to come.

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

Pros: Power, styling, excelent transmission.

Cons: Has some blind spots and being used to and AWD car or rear engine/RWD car the FWD powertrain is intimidating.

Gti Forever — handle it with care ,, it will definitely take care of you . First time I own a GTI with this one and its definitley not the last GTI in my sights. GTI 35 edition next. Gas consumption depends on your diving style , but its good. Not costly to own but the front suspension is weak man , ball joints,shocks have a short lifespan.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: speed, comfort , nice family car although its old but it holds its own ground against 'newer' cars ...very fun to drive ,nimble

Cons: front suspension, turbo lag

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
