O nice zissou, I drive an '06 GTI haha. one more manual on the road is a win, nice car too zissou Am I the only one who thought Zissou drove a truck? lol and I have a stick 06 civic. Manuals FTW Thanks, guys. I traded in my '08 Rabbit on this one. It was the only automatic I have ever (reluctantly) owned. I was thinking more like hahaha. It would be hell to commute in that thing. What I really wish I was driving: In the end, though, I need a reliable car because I have a young daughter, and I often travel to fairly remote places. The Golf doesn't have a ton of HP, but with the turbo, the torque is Plus, 45mpg on the highway.
