Cool How many girls drive GTI's?

Hey guys

I work for the Fire Department here in South Florida. Us Firefighter's are known for busting eachothers balls about things we do, things we say and the cars we drive.

Most Firefighters have Trucks (which I used to have also) but I live far from most stations and i wanted a quick car that looked sporty, got good MPG and had 4 doors (as I have 2 kids) both in car seats might I add... I have some guys that ask if I got my car for my sweet 16's or "When did daddy buy you that car, Graduation?" etc...lol

That got me thinking the other day. How many females actually drive mk6 GTI's? From what I see in the forum and on the street it's more of a guys car...

Any ladies in the forum??

That is all....

It's a "cute" car, but it's definitely a guy's car. You'll be more likely to find chicks driving mustangs and trucks than driving a gti.

You don't need a "big truck" to prove you've got big balls.

I would have to agree that the GTI is more of a guys car. Girls, for the most part, are indifferent about it. My girlfriend, for example, was very indifferent about it...until she drove it.

Girlfriend - "This car just goes where you tell it to go...it's like driving a little go kart! Why doesn't my altima feel like this?!"

Me - "Because it's an altima, not a GTI".

Same with the truck, you didn't go with a truck this time around because of the gas mileage and wanted a fun car to drive etc etc. To me, I would even drive around a Mini Cooper S - which is extremely fun to drive and many many women drive that.

If your wondering if women walk around with a macho meter your mistaken (not saying you think that just hitting all the points here plus the subject has already come up) - some do but not saying much about the individual if that's how they gauge people. Even though I've heard women say that men who drive trucks are sexy, it just really doesn't matter what you drive as long as you keep it clean and running properly (this is how I've heard the majority of women speak of the scenario).

I've driven many testosterone boosted cars per say - gt500, m3, etc. I still love this little car. It's fun and pratical, and IMO looks really cool. The GTI always caught my attention even when I drove my m3.

I still haven't seen a woman drive a GTI till this day...still waiting lol.

Just my two cents

Sean

I think guys are much more likely to be on a car forum... prob at least 20 to 1 ratio of car forum ppl are guys vs girls.

That said I see a lot of girls in GTIs as well.

Man, I love the Interlagos seats.....but they aren't exactly a testostrone inspired design....

Many guys who are into performance cars would be put-off by them I'd imagine....

My wife drives a 2011 GTI (2 door, CW) and loves it. She likes the look, the power, the way it drives, and the plaid seats. She's not really interested in mods or the online forums (but she did ask me to change her footwell lights to red when she saw mine).

She has noticed one curious thing, it seems that 18-25 year old guys strike up conversations with her about the car almost everywhere she goes.

Those jackasses that say that are under the false stereotypes that all Vee Dubs are chick cars. I'm sure they (and you) would disagree that some stereotypes are untrue, such as the one about firefighters being womanizing, egotistical douches. Or that those that drive big trucks are compensating for something below the belt. (not calling out firefighters btw)

Your car kicks ass, and that's all that matters!

Also, I see a few girls driving around in GTIs but so far none have acknowledged another GTI next to them. Like xHeartcoreboyx said, it's a cute car. So what?

I get compliments from girls on my GTI all the time. It's definitely way more of a guy's car, but I know a couple girls who have them or want them.

Real men don't care what other people say about their manhood. Just saying.

(I've noticed way more men than women driving GTIs. More women seem to drive Golfs/Rabbits, so 50/50 for those?)

I work as a bus mechanic. I'm the only guy that drives a car vs a truck.

I'm also the only one there that doesn't cry constantly about gas killing their budgets.

Plus mine is way more fun to drive!
