AKGTIGUY (Chris) here, posting from Anchorage, AK! Currently in a 2007 GTI, black, mostly stock but a ton of mods to come! Previously I had a '97 Golf GL and an '82 Rabbit. Looking to make some new friends and talk shop with, as well as meeting any local GTI owners here in AK. Pics coming soon!

Hello,
my name is Carlos, this is my first European car after only owning Japanese cars. My last car being a Mazda RX7. Completely in love with the GTI. Perfect DD.



And here's a picture of my exquisite picture taking skills.
Looks like my baby! I just bought a 2007 GTI and I too am excited to get modding!

Full circle - back again.

My introduction to the Golf was a 2009 Manual Rabbit. I loved the car, but wanted more. Since then, I've owned a Mk6 GTI, Mk7 GTI, and I now drive a Mk7 Golf R.
So, when my youngest kid got his learner's permit, there was only one car that I thought would be perfect. Now we have another 2009 Manual Rabbit.

Driving one again, after all these years, the car is every bit as good as I remembered. It's got just the right amount of power and handling to be fun, without getting into trouble. I honestly enjoy driving it as much as my R. Of course it isn't new, and is suffering from a saggy headliner, and odd-bits need to be replaced. Most notably, I'm going to need to replace the AC compressor/condenser etc..

I think some easy bolt-on mods will really bring the car to life. Cat-back exhaust, CAI, lower springs and a heavier rear swaybar.

2007 Vw Gti
so first time owner of a Gti love it so far. It’s an 09 Gti 3 door, and that’s all I know about it. It had leather seats in it when I acquired it, I took them out and got the plaid ones. Had black stock wheels I replaced with Vision Monaco 18 x 8.5. But as I said I’m new to euro I’ve been a Jdm (Nissan 350z and Subuar Wrx) owner my whole life. So needless to say I’ll have question arise.
