Way to be lazy.

The rabbit's a neat little car. Only hatchback style cars I'd even consider purchasing come from VW. (R32Golf, Rabbit, GTI)

=)

I like them, went to the VW dealer and thought about test driving it, but I have enough cars and bills.

When I built the one on there site, with the 17" rims and the PIAA body kit and most of the goodies I was at 18,125. Not to shabby.

Thats strange, but that must have been a stripped GTi. ;)

Also, I did that with the two door, the 4 door is more expensive. I think like 2 or 3 g's more, I cant remember.

eh, the 24v vr6's aren't all that inspiring, even the 3.2

and the sound doesn't even come CLOSE to the obd1 12 valves. Those things are some of the gnarliest sounding engines ever made, especially with an agressive cam in there.

I'd get the 2.0t, those things pull like freightrains, the torque is nasty, not to mention they're underrated from the factory, most put more than 200hp to the WHEELS straight from the factory, and with a simple chip, hp is well over 250.

you won't be disappointed. get a chip in that thing, and you won't stop smiling everytime you drive it.

Tipchip for the win - there is a VAGCOM location finder thing at vwvortexi think. Maybe PESTuning. Audiworld? One of those sites anyway.

I am jealous, lucky bish you! I tested the 2dr Gti and loved it, but was just a bit out of my price range. Was a very nice car though, so nice choice and I betcha it will look sweet with some tint. Ahhhhhhhhhhh, I want that car!

What the hell are you smoking?

I would love to have a rabbit. I think my 2nd car (once out of college, of course) is going to be a used Saturn Sky Redline puttin out 260horse with a 5.5 0-60 :veryhapp: :veryhapp:

does it drop in value by 1/2 as soon as you drive it off the lot like the other saturns?

i love that car.

looks so much better than the previous generation.

hate what they did to the jetta, tho. i think last generation was the nicest looking jetta ever.

this is definitely the nicest looking golf since 92, tho.

i'm jealous

I'll agree. I had a new one as a rental for a few weeks, it was remarkably fun to drive, but I'm skeptical about the chrome fronts.

^x2, the primer black grilles on the GLi's and the GTI's look nicer.

But it wouldn't be hard to change that, or just paint it to match the car.
