Anyone who knows cars, compliments me. Girls all love the plaid interior, in fact most of my compliments on my car are from females.

My sister busts my chops for getting a VW, because she has a '99 jetta with a ton of issues and I always busted her chops for it.

One person said going from a used '07 328xi to a GTI was a total fail (I think he was more understanding once I presented my argument)

Yesterday at a convenience store someone asked "whose car is that" some section 8 white trash went "not mine, I'd never own that car" I held back saying "because you couldn't afford it"

Overall haters will hate, maybe because of that certain age range who owns cars like this with loud mufflers and stupid fucking "shocker" and "i heart pussy" stickers all over their hatch. But for the most part I keep my cars clean and everyone loves it.

All that hard work to put in badass LED's and your only reward is someone calling it cute. Its tough being a VW enthusiast.

Maybe this is how anime fans feel when the world makes fun of their hobby. No one understands but others in the community.

Yes, FML.

I got another "cute" from a girl at work yesterday. I also get tons of compliments on the detroits. Car guy's want to know the stats, and every one of them has given me a "great car" or a "cool car" every time. A stranger in a SLS pulled up next to me in a parking lot, just to ask me about it. Nice guy, I asked him if he wanted to swap.
I've never gotten one insult or snide remark.

"cute car" the worst. I have a buddy who always hates on mine new one. I crashed my old gti and he said "an sti or an Evo and you would've saved that wreck." and doesn't like my hipster plaid. I tried explaining the heritage and tradition of the gti but I just think he plays too many tuner-style video games. But everyone else who sits inside the car loves the upscale mature interior and I love showing off the dsg burps

I went for Taco Bell one Friday night not knowing the location serves as a Friday import get together for Japanese/Korean cars. I had some not so nice looks but that was it.

Guy at school who thinks he knows everything about cars (who actually drives a 88 ford ranger) Said "all I could hear was your tiny turbo trying to spool when you drove past"

I also had someone call my car a minivan when I had my R32. Honestly I got a lot of compliments from the r32. Not that much from the GTI. But all my friends with more expensive cars love my car. I love it more and more day by day.

I have owned my car almost 2 years now and gotten no insults, maybe around 6-7 compliments/questions from random people.

I get nothing but compliments except for friends/coworkers who are just trying to bust my balls

1. "Boyracer"
2. "Ricer"
3. "Why didn't you get a mustang?"
4. "It's just a dinky little hatchback."
5. "FWD is for pussies"

And anytime I say I drive a VW, people assume I drive a beetle
