Hey everyone! So after working and saving (and complaining about wanting a GTI for 3 years) I have finally reached a point where I can purchase one:happyanim:! So here is my question/dilemma.

I have already been looking at the following GTI:

2008, 2 Door, Automatic, 93k miles, Leather (Autobahn?) priced at $10,500
^ Is this a good deal?

I'm close to pulling the trigger on this but I'm starting to wonder, should I pay a little more for a newer mk6 with less miles? I prefer Automatic (don't hate me) for sure. I've seen a few mk6's posted for example, (2011 Automatic 40k miles priced at $14,999) and I'm really questioning what I should do.

Any and all advice is welcome for a first time GTI owner-to-be!

Thank you for reading, and I look forward to your responses!

Extra info: I'm from eastern Massachusetts if it makes any difference, thanks!

If you can afford a newer, lower mileage MK6, that is what I would buy, especially if this is your daily driver. Getting a car with 50,000 miles less on the odometer is probably a good idea.

bhmkv is correct "Go as new as possible" also check the maintenance record as basis of the condition of the vehicle. And most of all be patient in choosing.
