    DSG vs 6 Speed

    I've been reading different reasons why people have chosen to buy GTIs, and mostly what I've read is performance for a 4-banger, and fun-to-driveability. When I hear those things, I don't necessarily think of a car with automatic transmission. Granted it's DSG, I'd still think that a 6 speed...

    Sunroof OR 18" Hufs???

    What's up everyone! I'm looking to lease a MkV really, really soon. According to what the going price for a UG GTI goes for in my area, I can choose either a sunroof or 18" Hufs, and still remain right around the same going price. I'm a sucker for sunroofs, although I think most on here will...
