The part im most confused about, some website claim this is the autobahn version yet there is no sunroof, no HID lights, its pretty darn basic.

But it is a 4 door so thats what i needed.

Thank you for all the help!

I already hate the headlights and taillights.

Would this fit?

It's not an Autobahn then. If it was a 2010 it may have been possible as you could pick your options ala carte. A 2011 Autobahn would have a sunroof and hid headlights

I had mine cleaned off at 80K miles. That may be the reason why they resealed the intake manifold twice before replacing the whole thing, although it should have only been done once. I didn't know that the intake manifold itself was an item that was fragile to begin with, but that may explain that annotation you see.

Overall though, solid car. I would buy another one.

Correct. Mine is 2011 Autobahn and they are loaded. I love the hid headlights.

The next car i get will have all the creature comforts. Push button start, LED/HID projection, blind spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, im less and less concerned with being 100% connected to the road as i am about being comfortable while going.

FWIW my 2010 Autobahn has the sticker, came with HID lights, leather and sunroof, but no nav. Car has only had 1 intake manifold under warranty and a small leak in the radiator over 144k miles. I drive hard and it's held up well. Welcome to the club.

IMO, good choice not going with the car in your OP. Car was with third owner for only a month and he's selling? *red flag*

Yeah, I get it...maybe buyer's remorse or in over his head or whatever, but a quick turnaround like that on a car that has over 100k usually means issues.

Just my $0.02.

Congrats on new ride and welcome to the club.

Shake at idle will probably be a dual mass flywheel issue!

If you do decide to replace the lights go with genuine! The quality is just not there with the aftermarket stuff! The only exception is the OSRAM Xenarc headlights which are top quality but that is reflected in the price.

Ill have to check the price, i dont wanna sound like a rich snub person, but i honestly dont wanna spend that much on this daily, however i do have to change the headlights, not having HID's its my downfall and it bothers the living shit out of me

I wonder if its a US thing only but here in Canada I have never seen a GTI with halogens, only 2.5's have em and only the GTI's and R's have the projectors.
Conrats on the car BTW
