      Great description! I've been driving Volkswagens for decades and you scored a bulls eye with "the new GTI is a car that feels "right" right away", I'll add that all GTIs, and many other VWs, have...

      I've bought my first Volkswagen Beetle back in 1968 and have bought and leased ever since. My last VW was a 2011 Golf TDI that I owned and traded in on a lease for the 2015 GTI I currently drive. ...

      I completely agree with VWoA making another serious mistake in marketing to US Dubbers. The GTI has always been a 2-door with 4-door option until VWoA decided to force feed 4-doors - loaded with...

      Comparing the "heavy" driving dynamics of a MKIV R32 with a MKVII GTI is at best apples vs. oranges. The many drawbacks of the MKIV chassis have been significantly improved on with the MKVII. I am...
