MK6 GTI - The "Huckleberry" edition

Bought this car just over a year ago and all my big projects are complete. My wife and I have always had a "berry" when we've had hatchbacks. Blueberry, banana berry, etc. So, the family called this car the huckleberry when I brought it home. It's not the quickest off the line, but I think it's sexy, affordable, and fun; reasons we're all GTI lovers. Hoping to take it to the track in the summer.
