5 door will be far more practical for those of us with kids...Getting my sons in and out of my MKIV GTI wasn't the problem...getting back there to buckle their belts is a drag.Das_Meister said:Why is the 5 door so much more practical? Do you really find it that hard to slide
the seat forward to get in? I'm 6'3" and I have more problems getting in some 4/5 door cars than the Golf.
Also with the 3 door, if you have something large to place in the back seat, (example a large CRT TV) its alot easier than the 5-door.
This is all from my experiences. BTW if you get either, you're still a winner.
