      All of the freon in the AC of my 08 GTI leaked out last summer, it was fixed under warranty, but certainly annoying. Even full charged the AC is not that great in these cars.

      I'm not really into naming cars, but my girlfriend is, so when I got my GTI 2 years ago she wanted to name the car. I told her it needed to be a German name, so we ended up on Heidi.
