3300lbs and i still like them.
Won't really track-day it, so weight isn't that critical. All-around competence is though
I still prefer these for some reason.
I was so excited to finally test drive one....and the clutch feels like a piece of paper. Pissed me off SO much.
You should probably raise your standards
Try the DSG.
My friend has a 2003 Golf GTI. He let me ride with him and that thing pulls hard. But I would like to try the newer GTIs.
I'd love to take a 5-speeder out for a test drive. I've driven a 2002/2003 Jetta? and it was ok.. had pull, but I've always wanted to try a GTI and VR6 Corrado (older, yes I know).
I like the new GTIs but rather have the older R32.
Apparently the reviews are saying that if there's any car out there that has a worthy 'auto' box, this would be it. DSG's supposed to be amazing. Certaintly faster than the manual.
Nah, I'm too young. Even if I had the money, I don't think I could pull off an M3 or S4 or Cayman or 911 or G35. Just wouldn't feel right driving it, for moral/aesthetic reasons. Perfect example: I just can't see how a Ferrari F355 would be physically possible, unless I had bald spot and, riding shotgun, a wrinkled, platinum blonde trophy wife sporting a leathered tan.

candy white is hot but the tornado red is just perfect
The wheels on that white one should be declared a capital offense.
I thought so at first too, they really do grow on you.
I test drove both of these cars back to back.
I much prefer the MkV GTI. It feels lighter and the throttle response/torque production feels quicker.
The R32 has the sexy all wheel drive but for most driving this boils down to useless hype. The GTI is cheaper and more fun. I think it has more style too (interlagos plaid, throw-back shifter, etc.).
I own a MkV GLI (a GTI without the hatch ) and fucking love it. 6 speed, 2.0T, 200HP...and it looks like a Audi interior as well.
I would love to get a MK5 GTI, They're awesome little cars. The 2.0T is such a great engine. Lets see how well it does once some owners get some miles on them..
I think it might be fun to swap a 2.0t into my 1999 Passat. It is teh sexy, especially now that I put new wheels on it.
07 GTI here.
Fucking love the thing! 30 MPG, 4-door, leather, DSG, Direct-Injection, Variable Timing, Variable Length Intake Manifold, Turbo-Charged, High-Compression (10.5:1) motor, oodles of torque....it just keeps going!
Mods - V-Flow Intake, Miltek Turbo-Back Exhaust, APR Stage IIb chip, R32 Tails, Open Front Fog Covers.
you should try one of these...
the best GTI
MKI and II are way better in every aspect really, but as far as new FWD 4 cylinder cars, its probably one of the only ones you would see me driving in. I drove the DSG and absolutely loved it. I forgot about the fact that I was driving a tank (3300lbs), and it was FWD. It was just a nice car to live with every day.
The sound of the .:R > *
I had an exhaust clip as my ringtone for a few months
But mk2 > mk1 > mk3 > mk5 > > mk4 (not R32)
eh guys...VW over weighted these cars (claimed)
on vortex they weighed in just over 3,100 lbs..
BTW OP: I'm selling my 2006 gti..http://www.dubsinthebuff.com/forum/sale/12224-fs-2006-gti.html
