First, welcome to the forum. This model VW is now almost 14 model years old so there is not a lot of new activity on here but there is a wealth of historical data here and still a few loyal owners still here.Hello everyone!
I'm posting here as an introduction, -my first post.
We might purchase a 2006 GTI DSG 2-door (tomorrow) for our 16-year old Son. I created an account to thank you guys in advance for this site, and for this forum.
I have been surfing this site for only 2 days, to learn about the MkV GTI. VW Newb? -who me? Yes.
After we purchase this 2006 GTI (or a similar VW) I will definitely post again.
Thanks for your time and words of caution. I wanted to post back and let you know that your words of wisdom did not fall onto deaf ears. The planned meeting (for today) with the GTI owner fell apart, and is now planned for Monday evening. I previously met the GTI owner (2 days ago) and did a brief test drive. The car is 100% stock.First, welcome to the forum...
...The GTI is just too fast for a first time driver under almost all circumstances. The cars get going very fast very quickly and an inexperienced driver can easily get into trouble.
