3.5L V6, 24 valve, 268 hp @ 6200 rpm

i dont know if it has torque, but it is ugly as hell!!!

and the 08 gti uses more gas than the 07 one. 08= 21/29 07=23/33 did the car get heavier or something ? ???

The way those mileage ratings are calculated just changed. The tests are supposed to more closely mirror real world conditions. Pretty much all makes/models are seeing a drop.

Matrim is correct- the feds changed it, to be a bit more accurate and real world expectations of MPG.

I cant wait till George W moneygrubber/oil company lover is out of office, this country is so effered up since he has been in there, i think its time for a woman to try on the oval office for awhile, maybe she will get a male intern to go down on her...now that would be sweet revenge on ole billy boy.

oh...and as a woman, maybe she will have some common sense and take care of problems in this country instead of worrying about the rest of the friggin world!

To not get off topic...The Honda accord is ugly and i think my GTI can beat it! That is all.

I think the V6 model with the big horsepower is faster than the '07 V6 accord coupe. From everything i've read the 07 and the new 08 are faster than a DSG GTI in 0-60 and 1/4 mile and they run on standard gas, not premium. I wouldn't race one, how embarrassing to get beat by a grandma car.
