I've been a big VW guy for well over ten years now and have owned my fair share...two Jettas, a Passat VR6 wagon, Scirocco 16V. I currently daily drive a 2010 GTI, which is hands-down the best car I've ever owned. The only thing I wish it had were two more doors. That will be rectified in a year and a half though, when the 2015 GTI is released. I'll be trading it in on one of those.
Has all the options I would want...Xenons, sunroof, Bluetooth, and 18" alloys.
Interior is all stock...the plaid is a great throwback to the 1983 GTI.
I've owned this 2003 GTI 20th Anniversary for almost 7 years...the longest I've ever held onto a car. It's one of 1000 in Jazz Blue and I have no intention of selling unless someone makes me an offer I can't refuse.
And lastly, I bought this gem off Craigslist two years ago in a moment of nostalgia. It's an '81 with 92k on the clock...finished off in Copper Metallic. My mom had the same color and year, just an ST instead of this GT Liftback. That definitely fueled my purchase. Unfortunately, I haven't taken it out in a while because it's in storage and isn't quite easily accessible.
