Although I'm sure some drifting is possible with the GTI, that type of driving is best accomplished with a rear-wheel drive car. With RWD, you can steer the car in one direction with the front wheels while adding momentum along the axis of the car, because the rear wheels aren't turning.

That said, the Cherokee has a 0-60 of just under 5 seconds according to the internet, and the GTI is closer to 7.
I'd still recommend the GTI (obviously), because I'm not a truck/SUV person.
People still consider buying vehicles that get 15 mpg city / 20 mpg hwy?!

The 5-door has the same trunk space as the 3-door.
If you are concerned about the extra doors and trunk space, the GLI may be a better bet.
Head over to a dealer and see what they look like to you.
And I second Killer Duck's notion: don't get the Jeep unless you're towing and hauling stuff regularly.
The VWs will be fun drivers, and much better looking.

I like the rims, but I've not seen a body kit I think is an improvement over the stock body.
Also, I absolutely love the way the engine sounds already, so any exhaust mods are confusing to me unless they can open up a whole bunch of power.

Just my opinions... feel free to do what you like.
