So I am thinking about investing in a GTI - there are a few threads here but I have some specific questions :) I am currently rolling in a Ford Docus SVT which is a pretty fun car - 6 speed manual. But the GTI looks like a blast - and VW's are very reliable so I've heard (Never owned one) I have a couple questions:

1.) Anyone out there have the Auto/Paddle shit option? How does it drive?
2.) What kind of Mileage am I looking at - pretty good?
3.) Does it run on high octane gas?

And the overall fun factor - do you get pushed back in your seat hard when you launch? Is the ride smooth at med/high speeds and turning?

Did you mean "Auto/Paddle shift option"? Just curious :D

Thanks in advance! Nice site here :)

Here in Germany we have only high octane compared to you in America (I've heard), so that should be no problem.

Yes, the turbo is amazing, when you drive a care with one the first time. You get used to it, but friends are always shocked by the power. 4 Days ago I drove on the Autobahn...it rained and I drove about constantly 210-220 kph where it was possible. The car is super-stable and you don't have any major vibrations. All in all, it's a great car to do long fast drives, too.

Autobahn isn't all it's cracked up to be. If you're lucky, traffic isn't too dense and there aren't too many trucks or Dutch people to get in your way.
