1997 Volkswagen Golf GTi 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Top performance car with class oozzing out of everything
It had the original twin tail pipe on it, which snapped, but that was through corrosion.
I don't know about in the states, but when the Golf GTI is brand new (mk3), lots of things are optional extras like the trip computer, air con, CD etc. My one is fully loaded with FSH from the dealer.
I paid £8000.00 for a July 1997 model in black; it had one owner from new and is fantastic.
I don't know how to compare running costs to you in the states, but my insurance is £1,300.00 and petrol is 80 pence a litre here, which is a lot more than the states, so running costs are high. It's about $1.30 or thereabouts !
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
