We just picked up a 1995 GTI for my daughter, who will be turning 16 in a few months. It's actually a really fun car to drive and I'm impressed at how solidly built and durable it is. In particular, the seats look almost new and the engine and transmission are solid and strong. Over the last couple of weeks I've found myself grabbing the keys if I need to run a quick errand. I love my E46 ZHP convertible, but the GTI is a fun little car and a tremendous value.
