i guess i would too. i just need to mod it to fall in love again. i really need to get it tuned and im sure ill be happy once again. my car is a base and i wish i had the steering wheel controls and xenons. i have no regrets with the dsg. its nice in the morning when im feeling lazy and dont feel like shifting but i have the option if i feel like it.

Yes, because it would still be cheaper to maintain than a used Porsche Cayanne Turbo.

I would do it again but DSG not manual. I'd probably never buy a golf R, I've owned a few awd cars and they are great but I love FWD and the way they drive, that's just me though.

I would too but like the guy above, would probably go DSG if I were to do it again. Have supporting mods and a downpipe for stage 2 but my clutch is fine on stage 1 and not interested in spending $1500-$2000 (CDN) on a clutch. Might go for an MK7 in the near future, 4dr, DSG... just moved houses and the GTI was amazing with the seats down, so much room to pack it full which made me fall in love with it again.

From a monetary standpoint, no. Bought my GTI used in 2013 for $19K. Had under 20K miles. At the time I didn't think I would mod at all but that lasted a month maybe. Then, it went downhill from there like many of us and now it's a money pit. Do I enjoy driving it? Yup, except for the shitty NGP coilovers that are too harsh even at reasonable ride height. From a "fun project" standpoint, it has been equally rewarding and frustrating. All in all, a good experience thus far but I gotta say that new Mustang GT put a spell on me.

Would have gone straight to K04. Otherwise, everything else would be the same.

No doubt. This is the best car I've ever owned. I'm at 155K miles and it runs and drives great. I've been APR Stage 1 since it had 20K miles. Other than brakes, tires, filters and a carbon clean, I've only had to replace the intake manifold (under warranty), turbo at 142K miles, the timing chain tensioner (preventative) and the radiator. I still am on the original water pump, although now that I have said that, I probably have a puddle of coolant under the car right now!! I consistently get 30 mpg and with the help of Adams Polishes and Chemical Guys products, it still looks great.

I absolutely would do it again. I bought out my lease, so that should be a good sign of how much I like the car. I wanted to own a GTI for over 25 years, so I'm living out a long time wish.

At this time my only regret is I waited so long to get a lighter set of wheels and summer tires. That one mod alone made a big difference, and renewed my enthusiasm for driving my GTI.

I really miss driving a RWD performance car, and will again someday, but for now the GTI is the perfect match for where I'm at in life.

I did it (well almost). I have 2009 Audi A3 fwd with DSG. It is with 232 000 miles now. I bought salvaged 2012 manual 2dr GTI with a plan to rebuild it and give it to my 16yr old daughter. She is not big fan of the manual so she is taking over the A3 and I'm going back to the VW club.
