    What kind of deal do you think I could get? Under MSRP? Aren't the 2005's coming out real soon?

    Overweight, underpowered, handles like Roseanne Bar on a toboggan. Interior is nice, but doesn't stay together very well. Reliability is also very questionable.

    The Golf GTI is actually made in Brazil or Germany. Usually Brazil. The USDM Jetta, and the Beetle, are made in Mexico.

    That having been said, the quality doesn't vary much from country to country, the robots don't care what the boss eats.

    The Mini is a really neat car... but it kinda seems like the interior was a bit overdone. :dunno:

    I just picked up an 01 GTi 1.8t last night. First things first the car is underpowered, may chip it though. Engine is extremely quiet and it annoys the shit out of me, its like driving a toyota camry. Clutch feel... there isnt much, very light clutch not a sport feel. Handling is so so, unfortunately I have the 15" base wheels on mine. Interior is nice, stereo is very good (got the monsoon system).
