I just traded in my 07 gti for a 2011 WRX and it is simply amazing. the interior is crap compared to the gti but it has a stock 0 to 60 time of 4.7 seconds nough said right there. its AMAZING

ya it has the STI wide body kit on it. but the 216a isnt coming to america and it was co designed with Toyota so even if it was, i wouldn't go near the thing!!!

Not sure what the point of that post was, but I'm running a 3.8 second 0 to 6 time. i didn't get even close to that in my stage 3 GTI. Sad but true, front wheel drive cars just can't put the power down and have a limit to the amount of power the car can have and maintain drivability

I see that you both are noobs(at least to this forum) but the GTI has a HUGE disadvantage to the wrx because it is fwd vs awd. I have had a near as makes no difference 400hp GTI and now I have a 300hp 2011 wrx and it absolutely kicks its trash. Once you get into a race with the other driver is actually proficient in a stick he will win. I love the GTI, its a very refined and good car. The wrx is hard loud and cheap inside, but it can take on a 997 turbo and win, until 80 mph at least, and that's completely stock, just telling you guys to be carefully and don't get cocky, I did and it was embarising when I lost and bad

Wow how about you look at the facts before you open your mouth cuz you just look like a retatred, stock Gti 0 to 60 6.5 stock wrx 0 to 60 4.8 ya hum... I can't tell what's faster, then off the line the wrx will always win because the front wheel drive has awful grip, next thing is the wrx weighs almost 600 pounds less! Now do miss my Gti yes, as a daily driver car it's is by leaps and bounds better, but when there is snow or it's wet or when you smoke a corvette that's when it comes into its own, plz look up specs on the 11-12 wrx before you state false info, really wow. My injectors are cosworth injectors so bet you don't known what they are running, but if you look at the Cobb stage 2 wrx you can see all the specs you want if your still scepical :)

Many good thing here that people should know about the wrx being posted, the tranny is crap I'm at 12,000 miles and am on my second one, going to get a new clutch tomorrow got to love that warranty, my dad has a 997 turbo and every time I can beat him up tell 80 mph then the car really falls off, same with the vet my roommate has one but I can stay ahead of that tell almost 100, the tires ya the ones that came one the car just plain do not work in the snow at all!!! They are like slicks haha, so had to get snow tires but not a big deal. Yes my 400hp gti was faster if I was stating from a roll around 40 or 60 but the 99% of the time the wrx is faster because of the traction and low speeds around town. All this being said givin the choose again I would have got a gti-R ( when it comes ) over the wrx, need the awd, cuz VW's ate just so so so much better build and refined cars, I'm 22 and have had 10 different cars ranging from amg Mercedes and m bmw's to subarus and Hondas, VW is deffinaly my second favorite brand, first is Mercedes! I will not be getting another Subaru again lol
