      4-door is the same exact size, inside and out.

      4-door is safer, stiffer and more convenient. Worth the $600 IMHO.

      Its all about your preference honestly!

      I know I'm the kind of guy that doesn't like having a lot of people in my car (especially when I'm going to be lowered) so having 2DRs is more of an excuse not to take people in your car. However the room in the rear seats is huge for a hatchback, even for myself and I'm 6'2 215lbs lol

      And also for the difference in weight, from what I have heard (may or not be true have not looked into it) but 2drs are actually heavier then 4drs because the steel used to make the. 2drs is a lot heavier

      One of the reasons it is stiffer and slightly heavier is the reinforcements needed for the rear doors. Heavier-duty B pillar, mainly.

      Do you guys think 26k before taxes and fees for a 4dr Candy white GTI Manual, with sunroof/nav package also has the 3m clear bra on is a good deal? Also it has 454 miles on it. Dealer said it was from transporting it to there dealership and a few test drives

      I have a 4 door, and have never regretted that decision.

      I frequently have to fill the back with stuff, and the side access is a real advantage.

      One nice thing about the 4 door is the front doors are shorter, so you don't need as much space on the sides to open them wide enough to get in and out comfortably. With my previous car (a 2 door MKIV), I was constantly scuffing the lower door panel with my oversize feet.

      Perfect! A 4dr is making more and more sense

      Or for single men who plan ahead and don't want a wifey or kid to force them to sell their car for a bigger one. Hence why I got a 4-door.
