    Perfection — Performance: it charges like crazy when you put your foot down, the brakes are good, fade free, handling is great for a hot hatch Quality: overall very good, more Audi than VW, but the DSG is tricky Appearance: aggressive stance, yet not too obvious Cost: cheap on gas for a sports car, easy to maintain Fun factor: this is where everything I wrote above doesn't matter anymore; it's a BLAST

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: puts a smile on your face every time

    Cons: you are insanely rich and want a Ferrari

    Get One. — this car is pretty fast... and its stable too so whenever you want to push it to the limit it never says no... but you also need to know how to drive.. it has the looks also the way the 18 inch rim is fiitted under thhose fenders makes me wana drive it more and more :D:D once you own a golf gti you ll know what i am talking about..

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

    Great All-arounder — After nearly 2 years with this car I still enjoy getting in it as much as I can and I get bored very quickly. It doesn't have the outright pace of the my old Evo VIII but it can hold it's own on a race track (and beaten up on a few Evo's in the process). I have yet to find a new car in the US market that has the performance, build quality, practicality, and solid gas mileage for the price this car cost me. And I drive a lot of flippin' cars!

    Pros: Good performance, practicality, price and quality rolled into a nice tidy package. If you can get past the breadbox on wheels looks it's almost a perfect everyday car.

    Cons: Like most cars these days it depreciates quickly. Buy used.
