For a short while, I had convinced myself I wanted to switch to a WRX or Civic Si. Luckily, I got a hold of myself and stopped that nonsense by taking a new GTI for a test drive.
Took her home last night. Deep Black, 4-door, DSG. Love it. Happy to stay in the VW family!
Shopping list: roof rack, winter wheels/tires. Leaving the rest alone for now -- I'm sure I'll change my mind at some point, but the Mk6 is damn near perfect right from the factory.
