Thought I'd add to the list. Bought her in June, 2012 Autobahn with DSG. She has CAI, Downpipe and Exhaust currently. I've added a kenwood DVD player with backup camera. Fun little hot hatch.

Edit: Ordered BBS RGR Diamond Black wheels in 17x7.5 et48 from Vivid Racing. Could be awhile before they come in, but have 225/45/17 Michelin Ps4's waiting to go on.

I ended up cancelling my order for the BBS wheels after they were postponed twice. Went a different route and pretty happy with the outcome. Alleggerita HLT MGS in Matte Graphite Silver. 17x8 +48 offset, 16.2lbs each.
I have SHS Coilovers and H&R Swaybars on order.

Why 17" and not 18"/19"???
As zrickety said. More comfortable and lighter. I've been doing the car thing for 20 years(sr20 240sx, FD rx7, S2000, NB Miata, SN95 Mustang GT and 2 Supercharged Corvettes). Never been a fan of running 19's on a car of this size. Even 18's just felt a tad too big for the car to me. My 800hp C5 Corvette ran 17/18 C5z06 wheels with Nitto 555R2's. That was as big as I ran on that car, and this GTI is smaller.
