Pros: Solid body structure
Cons: no negativesGreat quality and a better value than a Mini.
Pros: Auto roll down windows, with a viper auto start system is a dream come true.
Cons: That i had to sell it to keep my house.... :(I used to own a 2005 GTI in Indigo Blue and jsut fell in love with the car. I only had it stock for about 3 months before i started tuning. Even before i replaced the suspension my friends with Sti's and subies couldnt believe how it handled. Race car, with too many luxaries to describe ....
One Sweet Fun Ride
Pros: Fit and finish is beyond belief
Cons: Really cannot think of anything I do not like about this carBeautiful car to look at with timeless appeal inside and out. 2010 redo design cues taken directly from Audi A4. Fit and finish beyond belief and far better than 3 series No cheap plastics like the 3.
Kleine GTI - Fun & Practical
Pros: Sporty handling
Cons: Speedometer (precision lacking at normal speeds)Bought this car four years ago and still love driving it. With its handling, speed and utility, its probably the best balanced car you can buy. A defective A/C compressor has been my only real problem - though it took awhile to get it finally straightened out. Other than that its been a very reliable, hot hatchback.
Best GTI Ever
Cons: Air ConditioningThis car is a blast to drive. Even after 4 years of ownership, I feel as enthusiastic about this car as when I first bought it. It's a well-balanced, practical sports car.
Pros: Stock handling
Cons: Blind spot with the foor door. I am 6'3'. I have an '03 GTI 2 door and have no issues being a 2 door.Good daily driver with a well matched engine and transmission for the car. Nice 4 wheel independant suspension. Black on black. Tinted windows. Tires replaced 5K miles ago. Nice sound system with Satellite. Maintained and serviced. I am a Certified VW Technician.
