Drew's 2016 GTI

Decided I would make a quick page for my new car, a 2016 VW GTI S.  6-speed manual, all stock.  Love the Apple CarPlay and heated seats.  Not sure when I might start modifiying.  I would prefer to leave it mostly stock but might do some cosmetic upgrades like wheels, headlights, etc. 

This is the only pic I have right now, it's dirty and needs a detail.

Re: Drew's 2016 GTI

Congrats on the purchase! I'm sure that will be quite the improvement from your Corolla getting back into a fun car.  banana

Re: Drew's 2016 GTI

FoST and GTI seem to be the most common.  Obviously some newer WRX'ers too, but that no hatch hurt their chances.

These 2 cars are pretty much the closest we can get to a newer version of the 9-2x without AWD.

We just got a 2015 Ecoboost with cloth Recaro's in at work.  It's a pretty cool car.  I didn't get a chance to take it for a spin though.

We need LSD! I'd have looked a lot harder at the ST2/3 if an LSD was packaged.

Thanks! I liked the gray and blue the most, with silver coming in right behind those two.

Unfortunately mine doesn't have the LSD.  Need the performance package to get that  sad

Some updates also:

Had the windows tinted at 35% and installed a hitch for my bike rack

Re: Drew's 2016 GTI

These are great driving cars. My mom just bought one (I know how silly that sounds being I am 37) and I love driving hers. She has the DSG non sport package. Super impressed on how the engine sounds when at WOT and how hard it pulls.
