It's not that fat either. AWD, turbo, 305hp.

...And acres of turbo lag, awful styling and is too harsh.

True Story

Hey Guys,

My new "friend" gets about in an STi. So my son says "I don't think you should go out with a girl who has an STI". Fortunately she has a good sense of humour too.

He is right you know. Terrible if you caught it. Can make grown men cry, so I have heard.

Thanks for the concern, but things look fine.

I like the GTi. It's fast, smooth, comfortable, no turbo lag, has good quality, and loads of interior space. I also like the FIAT 500 Abarth and the Ford Fiesta ST.

The ricers can have their rally car wannabes.

I guess all of us at one time or another have had a case of black forest, Germanic gnome fetish. At least they run well most of the time and they don't have to live under the bed with monsters. Yours doesn't sleep under the bed does it?

I need some, then, to try and figure out what he's talking about.
