    I remember when I made friends with my fast, made friends with some cops shortly thereafter.

    My very first car was a 1984 VW GTI. I loved that car. I consider that a great car for a responsible young man.

    Once you get it, find a local SCCA club that holds autocross events. GTIs, even stock. are fun in the twisties. You're getting a manual transmission, right? :eyebrow:

    I'd be interested to hear if they've finally taken care of their quality control issues. I've got a 2004 gti, and I'm just not satisfied with it. The first 7 days were pretty cool, but the mileage has gone down a bit, the turbo lag has gone up, the clutch fell apart (and I had to fight a bit to make sure they would cover it), etc. Of course, I could sink a bunch of money into it to raise performance, but I just don't want to.

    I'm about ready to swear off VW, and to get a Volvo s40 t5 or an s60 R-series...wish in one hand, dookie in the other;)

    +2 Milk 'em while you can man, I hear you're a great bassist, so you may get lucky and make money, but if you're like a lot of us...

    That car is going to be with you for a good while once you graduate college. ;)

    I won't make backhanded comments about your parents money, cops or anything else.

    All I say is, have fun, that car rocks. :bassist:

    No, the new automatic tranny is amazing. 3 modes. Regular automatic, "sport" automatic which runs at higher RPMs, and Manual where you shift with the paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Very cool feature!
