Gobs of low end torque makes it so easy to drive the GTI, and the 6-speed manual transmission is so much nicer than my wife's 5-speed Golf. It handles really well, and, the cabin is pretty quiet and the car is very stable even at speeds above 100 mph. I have the base model with 17-inch wheels which provide a pretty comfortable ride overall. I wouldn't get the 18-inch wheels unless they are accompanied by the dynamic chassis control. I think the ride would be too stiff without it. I'm glad I didn't get the Autobahn trim which is a lot more money. I sometimes think about the Rabbit edition, which was great value, but I didn't like the black wheels or the colour choices. Overall, I absolutely love this car, and I've had no problems with it in 7 months of ownership. One caveat on that....I don't push the car close to its limits very often, and, that may be why I've had no issues.

The most fun you can have, with your pants on.

38.5 mpg on 65 mph 4 lane, and 44.9 on 2 lane 55 mph highway trip. This car has soul. Hybrid drivers should surrender their Man Card.

Gti - wow! Surprised and impressed!!

This being my first VW, I have only good things to say: surprisingly roomy, very fun to drive, quick and responsive, what a trunk! The conveniences in this car will impress w/ too many details to list, from the one-touch-down on all 4 windows, to the intuitive automatic (rain sensing) wipers. The wheel has such smooth leather and the shifter is almost perfectly shaped. Interior quality is superb, if somebody told me I was in an Audi or a BMW - I would believe them. Every trip in this car is fun, from parking w/ such a small footprint to passing traffic w/ ease. Cannot recommend this Gti enough!
