      the first two were just bad luck. The Mk2 was faulty fuel injection system and my first MK4 Gti hydroplaned during a hurricane while trying to make it to my friends wedding. slammed right into a curb in front of the church the 20th was just dumb driving. Theres so many things i could have done to avoid it but you live an learn....Automatic yea sucks but i like it.

      There is nothing impressive here. Only the fact that you like to ruin VW's. I cant wait to see what happens to this car.

      I agree with you... but good luck with the modding! Youve got what I think is the best color for our MK4 GLI's.

      Thatta boy! I'll say it because I wouldnt be a vw guy if i didnt...."Lower it! (even though I havent lowered mine yet, ha)."


      I actually spent time in Rockingham, Raleigh, Holly Springs, Jacksonville, and Durham. I was out there on a mission for my church. I miss NC a lot, its a great place.

      Back to the OP...you're missing a pretty big chunk out of that front valance. Keep it clean it's not a race car.

      Nice GLI! I own a 2004.5, I've had it since it was brand new, It's the best car I ever had. Take care of it and it will never leave you stranded(Unless it's your fault ). And screw all the haters Automatics need homes too. But nothing beats driving the 6-speed!
