My wife and I just had our first born and we took him home in the GTI and I am really getting the itch for selling my GTI and getting a stick shift sedan.
I actually have a lot of fun and really enjoy having the GTI as my baby transporter, even when I have to climb in and pop the car seat in
But, in the summer I bring out my 128i (6MT) so it doesn't make much sense to have dual 2-door cars.
So I'd like to solicit everyone's opinions on which sedan to get, my only stipulations are as follows:
-Must be stick shift
-Price must be less than 14k or whatever I sell the GTI for
-Total price of the next car must include taxes, fees and shipping since I will be purchasing the car from a state down south
It will be for year round driving and I am able to wrench on it myself, anything short of replacing engine/transmission/clutch/maybe suspension. And I am good at detailing and making the exterior and interior looking like it just came off the showroom.
