    Good job. Anytime you can put a VW "torque Monster" in his place is good by me! Ugghh VW...

    I once test drove the '06 GLI. That guy was probably thinking all his (electronic - uh-oh) gadgets make him faster. Frankly the car wasn't fast or nimble.

    But to paraphrase David Hasselhof in the first Knight Rider, the interior looked like Darth Vader's bathroom. And I guess that's kind of cool?

    they're kind of heavy.

    The new gti's are a little lighter. But with just a chip they're putting down 250hp and 270 ft/lbs tq. Not bad for a 2.0 with $350 worth of mods
    Why do I have to slow down for the WRX? Just because everyone says it's faster doesn't mean I Have to let it win, does it?
