      UPDATE! :: As of 25 January, (16 days active) 30 original owners have posted.
      The breakdown is:
      10 Jettas
      20 Golfs


      I didn't count anyone who was an original owner at some point in their life but isn't now. If a rental company owned it before you, then you are #2.


      If you bought your Mk4 new and still own it, post up your year, model, and when you bought it. A pic would be nice, too. This should be interesting!

      See...that's what I'm thinking. But I'd like to see who's held on from the start. Mileage threads have been done but feel free to rep your whatevers.

      Purchased it in Italy back in July 2004 while stationed overseas. Paid for it to get imported from the US. Sitting @ 129K miles. Getting pulled over to check proper documentation (registration & insurance) which they have the right to and asked "Where'd you get the 1.8T?" was a great convo starter.

      I miss driving her up n down the Italian mountains.
      GTI sold. Next: Subie!
