Little comparison imo. The V6 camry will undoubtedly get worse gas mileage too ... heavier and with a 6 cylinder.

You gotta remember, though, that a simple (and relatively cheap) ECU flash will make the GTI much faster than the Camry V6 ... and the camry doesn't have the ability to be so inexpensively improved.

The Camry can be modded too, though.

And this forum seems to be all about actual straight line encounters.

In that regard, the V6 Camry is a faster car than the GTI - whether it's "fun" or not.

The V6 Camry is EPA rated @ 20 city/29 Highway - BUT it doesn't require premium fuel.

So the fuel cost per mile is nearly identical to the GTI's.

Any car "can be modded".

The question is can any car be modded as cheaply/easily ... and the answer in this case is no. 500 bucks buys you 50hp and 100lbs torque, which in a car as light as a GTI makes a big difference (compared to the heavier camry). If you really go hog wild you can take ~4k and make the GTI a veritable monster (stage 3 > 350hp). Doubtful you could do that with a camry.

I think maybe I can beat him. You see its only a matter of a 3 second difference. Sitting here at my desk takes longer than 3 seconds, so technically I take off roughly 3 seconds on my 0-60 time.

Plus I have 3 extra doors

Other than the fact that they're generic family cars, yet their owners can out-run GTIs with them...

maybe somebody following my other posts have noticed this...if not I'll type it in big bold letters.

IF YOU BOUGHT A GTI FOR 0-60 TIMES, YOU BOUGHT THE WRONG CAR.

Man, who thinks this car is just an engine with wheels that can get from 0-60 in 6.8secs? There are other aspects to this car you know?

If people are scared of "other drivers" on the freaking interstate passing them then buy a stage 3 kit.

Anybody can go fast in a straight line.

That statement has no foundation in fact, though.

The Camry runs 0-60 MPH in 5.8 seconds (on narrow, non-performance rubber) and does the quarter mile in 14.3 @ 99 MPH. It's just a plain vanilla family sedan that also happens to be EPA rated @ 20 city/29 highway on 87 octane fuel.

I really like my GTI because of the total package and the price.

But it's not truly a "fast car" by 2010 standards. By today's standards it's merely comparable to many V6 powered Asian family sedans.

The GTI is a fast car by 1985 standards, but that was 25 years ago.

Yes, the GTI is not for people who live their lives a quarter mile at a time. I don't see how it can be compared to the Camry at all.

You mean other cars are faster than the GTI? NO WAI!


But seriously, my Mom has a V6 accord 5 or 6 speed.. i don't remember which. It feels faster than my GTI but it's not even close to enjoyable to drive. 3rd already grinds/pops out of gear if you get to frisky with the clutch, you have to tell your self to push the shifter into the glove compartment when you shift to 5th or you'll miss it, and forget trying to steer under power in 1st-3rd.

And that's not even touching on aesthetics and interior..
