i am a newbie, and looking to purchase either a 07 gti 4 door or a 07 jetta gli both with dsg. the fastest vehicle i have driven is my dads cherokee laredo 4.7liter v8, and to me that vehicle feels like a monster in the acceleration catagory. i really want somthing that is fast off the liine, i would like alot of opinions on these vehicles as far s performance. also i would like to do some drifting in maybe a couple of nearby abandoned parking lots and was wondering if these 2 cars would be good for that use?? are these 2 vehicles better or worse off the line than that of the cherokee 4.7liter v8??

hello, this would be my first post on these forums. my father has a cherokee laredo 4.7liter v8, and that would be the most torquie vehicle i have driven, to me it feels like a beast. i am looking to purchase my own new vw, either a 2007 gti 4 door W/DSG, or a 2007 jetta gli W/DSG. i would really like a vehicle with alot of acceleration, will it be better of worse than that of the 4.7liter v8?? also i was wondering if these 2 vehicles are drift capable, meaning can i actually drift?? and which 1 would be better equipped?? also, i would like some personal openions on the launch control feature.

thank you, Mike

that is true, but i am comparing the power of the jeep to that of the gti because i wanted to know how the acceleration would match up between the two. right now i am really considering the gti, im about 16 years old and 6 "1 and im looking for a fun 4 door fast small vehicle. how much room is there in the trunk of the 4 door gti?? and what performance mods can i get without voiding the warranty??

thats true, i know that the 4.7 v8 cant do 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds, i would predict more like 8ish. but over all is the gti a solid vehicle?? i am looking to purchase some type of aftermarket performance parts and maybe a body kit. do you guys have advice of what to get for the gli??? right now im thinking of buying these parts..... could i install these parts my self? i do have some mechanical skills.

BODY KIT --- http://www.namotorsports.net/detail.cfm/part_cd/RI59400.318.319.410
INTAKE --- http://www.namotorsports.net/detail.cfm/part_cd/NS65.10.97.65.02.50
EXAUST --- http://www.namotorsports.net/detail.cfm/part_cd/GHVWGTI5TB3QUAD
SET OF 4 RIMS ---- ASA AR1 Finish: Black w/Mach Lip in size 18"

would this be a solid setup added onto a stock 4 door untied grey gti?? any other mods i chould be aware of??
