I can hardly wait to see what kinda of negative feedback I get on this one, being that I am asking guys talking about shift points, but... What about launch control and the Automatic. the auto is a bit faster off the line. do you regret not getting auto in your GTI?

Hell no. ;D I think I'd rather pull my leg hairs out one by one than drive this car in an auto ::) When my dealer told me all they had was automatic GTIs, I turned and walked out.

Personally, if I wanted a dragster I would have gotten a Charger or a Mustang or a GTO or something like that. I purchased a GTI because I like to dance with my car in the twisty roads and I like to do the shifting myself. Whether or not an auto could truly smoke a stick or not is pretty much irrelevant to me anyway.

I have always said I wanted a fast, quick car that is fun and comfortable to drive. You have said the same, but why is it then that on all of the posts MKV vs XYZ, 0 - 60 and 1/4 times are the focus? Are we a silent majority?

Shouldn't you be studying?

Are you talking to me? ...Studying? Yes, I think we are the silent majority. Maybe its just more difficult to talk "specs" on handling. Its much easier to throw around times and the drag strip and 0-60 times, etc.
