    My Fast — This engine is AMAZING. Torque like a much larger engine. The car is a rocket. The ergonomics of the interior are nearly flawless. The shifter is a joy to use (and a HUGE improvement over previous Golf/Rabbit models). The dynamics are as good as ever. Just a wonderful car and a hoot to drive.

    Pros: Engine, Handling

    Cons: Nothing

    My Red Flash — Amazing performance: 6.9sec from 0-100km/h in manual gear selection - 6 speed DSG gearbox...Top speed - hmmm too many flashes but definitely fit for the race track, great handling, low gas mileage - around 7.5 l/100km in normal ride conditions Appearance in red: cool

    Pros: race track capable

    Cons: a bit too less power - stage 1 needed ;-)

    '08 Vw Gti 4-door — Fun daily driver. Powerful and comfortable, but doesn't ride so stiff as to jar your back like the Honda Civic SI. Expected understeer in corners is there, added to by the car being a little top heavy. Also, brake fade creeps up quick in "spirited" driving, so brake upgrade should be first on your list, quickly followed by a chip from AP Tuning.

    Pros: quick, fun daily driver

    Cons: brake fade creeps up quick, understeer, but expected in a fwd

    Gti - A Little Rocket In Rabbit Clothes — This little "rabbit: is a rocket. Uses the same engine found in the audi A4 and a3. 200 and 200 with such a litlle car and this things moves. It can be chiped throught VW to get upwards of 280 and 290. The dsg transmission is fantastic giving the options of using the paddle shifters, the traditional stick shift, regular automatic or sport mode automatic which maintains high revs for fast responses. For those who think sports cars should only have a true manual; drive this transmission system ans then think again. FUN FUN FUN

    Pros: Fast, Fun, smooth and a looker

    Cons: Only comes with summer performance rated tires meaning have to buy winters with seperate rims.

    The Dub Definition — Classy yet performance orientated hatchback, loved the evolution of the body from the Mark 4 to the Mark 5, for a stock engine and for what it comes out from the factory amazing power and handling. Great feel and control of the vehicle around corners and nice sounding back fires with the DSG Box.

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Dont Own the full option GTI :(
