Several guys on an other forum I post on have posted 1/4 mile times of 14.7 with a stock 6MT GTI. So it can be done.

Read a good article today while at the barbershop. I think it was the December 2007 edition. Would post a link, but I can't find it on-line. It was the results from the 40,000 mile road test of a 2006 MkV GTI. Several small problems that many of us have experienced, but overall, the drivers still love the car after 40,000 miles.

Picked up that issue when I saw it in the store and the review seems to be spot on. They experienced all the good and bad points we have experienced. What amazes me is 0 to 60 in 6.1 after 40,000 miles; and it is quicker to 100 mph after 40k. Although, there seems to be a big difference in published 0 to 60 times I've wondered about. The VW website has said 7 seconds, I'm sure we've all experienced mid to high 6's, but Car and Driver published 6 flat. I guess it depends on the driver and enviromental factors.
