guys, get over it. when a girl tells u ur car is cute, its a compliment. what kind of girl dont want a ride in a cute car? its a win.
but when a guy starts calling ur gti cute, then u should be worried. either he is into u, or he is hating.

Enthusiasts compliment my car. Clueless folks have asked why I got a 'wagon' or aren't you a little old for that style of car (I'm in my 40s). The only time I felt my ears ringing and my eyes seeing a blood mist was when a scion Tc driver said my car looked like a Toyota Matrix. Nearly bloodied my lip, I bit it so hard.

Not that I have tried it in this car, but having a great deal of success in that area in my third generation f-bodies (82-92 Camaros and Firebirds) when I was younger, which are nowhere near as space efficient as my GTI, I will offer these possibilities. Both rear seats down, or front passenger seat fully reclined or heck, even the back seat as it stands is pretty accommodating. :-)

I used to have a Honda S2000 and on those forums we had a similar thread. One of the worst comments I received on that car came from my younger sister. I overheard her telling a friend that I bought a new...


Civic convertible!

Only one friend hates on my car and he talks like

"here let me help you readjust the seat, it's a Volkswagen"
"it's a Volkswagen eventually it's going to break down and cost a shitload to repair. Compared to my Acura"
"it's turboed and all you get is 200hp? Weak"

He compliments it as well but that's really the only hating remarks I've gotten.

When I sent my sister a picture of the car, she said it looked like a minivan. How can that even be a thought?

1. It's cute, like a white bunny! (Girls)
2. I liked your STI better. (Some friends/family)
3. Why a GTI? All the kids in Europe love to rice that car out! (Coworker)

I'm happy with the GTI, so doesn't really affect me.
