2009 Black Vw Gli — Awesome car but you pay for it considering the base price of a regular Jetta. I love the looks, the handling, and the 18" wheels make this car pretty impressive looking. Plus it doesn't have the crown front that the regular Jetta's do which I don't care for.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the paddle shifters, Leather seats hug you in the turns.  

Cons: If you don't accelerate correctly you can have some substantial power lag for a couple of seconds before the turbo kicks in.

You Will Fall In Love At The First Drive — Lots of FUN...Drove 3000 miles within 3 weeks. Has the Audi feel, without the Audi price. Currently gets 31-32 mpg average in city and highway (mostly highway drive from A to B) in manual transmition. Free maintenance for 3 years. Feels solid on the road.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great handling, solid drive

Cons: Nothing

Don't Think, Just Buy! — • Performance - out of the box, it was quick and handled well, but needed a little aftermarket TLC. After some go fast goodies, its nasty! • Build Quality - Only one rattle has popped up in the passenger door • Appearance - It is sexy in candy white and the interlagos cloth is growing on me • Cost of Ownership - 30 mpg with APR software! no cost scheduled services for 36k! • Fun Factor - It's a blast to drive now!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun to drive and lots of potential!

Cons: VW break pads squeek like there is no tomorrow

My Gli Is Awesome — It's an awesome car, I love the performance, handling and appearance. It's not a car you see everywhere on the street, the modifications are awesome and easy to come by. A little tint and I think the car will be finished...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: performance and appearance are awesome

Cons: none

Gli Not Quit As Fun As Gti But Still Great Fun — After 3 GTIs in a row the GLI isn't quite as satisfying to drive. While it's basically the same car the extra weight and height seem to affect overall performance. However, although it's not as zippy as the GTI it's still loads of fun to throw into corners. The 18 inch 40 profile P Zeros make up for what seems like more body roll than the GTI. Still highly recommend- great bang for the buck.

Pros: Great performance for the money and room for the kids

Cons: Body roll, lack of stability in pushing hard

Only Thing Better Is The Audi R8 By Conner

Perfect. 6 speed manual makes every gear feel like 3rd gear. H&R springs make cornering a dream. Awesome factory 10 speaker system with 6 cd changer. Even the base model has plenty of safety features ... Read More
