Insults to your GTI

I've only had mine a few months but here are some of the things i've gotten by haters:

1) "Dude all the plaid in your car looks gay"-arrogant bone stock bmw528 owner

2) The dreaded "Your car is soo cute! "

Anyway, what kind of stuff have you heard from haters about your gti/golf?

Hey man, there are worse things in life than being called cute. Girls call everything cute, so it really doesn't even phase me. I just accept the compliment.

The interlagos plaid is sexy and if anyone were to say otherwise I'd pity them for having no style. Not that I've ever gotten anything but compliments anyway. Everyone seems to love the seats.

What it comes down to is that you need to realize that in actuality there's no substance to any "hate" that any jackass can come up with, so like I said, just take pity on the poor fools. I've never gotten anything but compliments so far either.

Well my boss keeps telling me that he will beat me in his Honda CR-Z. We did the comparison, and he still thinks that he will beat me. My other friend was actually pretty amazed my car can go, he told me that I would give him a run for his money with his a few year old M3.

I feel ya man...I feel that my gti is perfect in every angle...just the right balance of everything. I come from driving an fj cruiser though where the only comments you ever get are insults on (i'll admit) its slightly ugly body haha

I have had no insults or negative comments, only positive. In fact one of them was from you and your buddies.

"What? 36k$ for a chick car?"

"You drive it from the back seat or what?"
(Everyone here drives full size gas guzzling SUVs or Pick up)

"What the fuck, dual exhaust? you fucking ricer" (stock exhaust btw)
