I realize this is a bit silly but I just have to get on and say that our new 2017 GTI is just plain fun. I drive pretty spirited and even on a hot and sunny day today I peeled out in first gear after already going 10 mph without trying or putting the pedal all the way down. So much torque. So much spin up. When I replace these stock tires here soon it will get even better. What a pleasure to drive. Just sayin.
