    I don't see a mini-van when I look at this car. Maybe on photo it does moreso, because you can't really get a grasp on the size of the vehicle though.

    Let me get this straight.

    You want to trade in your Focus for a foreign Focus?

    Wouldn't you rather get a different style of car (that's still a hatchback), like a New Beetle? That car's a chick magnet, for sure. (I think it's also cheaper than the GTI.)

    I mean, don't get me wrong, the GTI is no doubt a sharp-looking car, but don't you think it's a little too similar to a Focus ZX3? Wouldn't you rather go for something a little different? Just a suggestion.

    The Beetle is a woman's car (IMO), and you can't compare a VW to a Ford. Don't do it!

    I like the small hatchback, sporty, good gas mileage thing.

    Beat, trading in a car is MUCH easier than selling your car, and much less RISKY.

    People do all kinds of crazy shit when they try and "buy" your car, like take it for a test drive and not come back, or give you a fake Cashier's Check for it and drive off leaving you getting it in the arse 2 weeks later when your bank figures it out, or paying you in counterfeit cash, etc., ad nauseum.

    I have bought several cars and every time I've traded mine in as it was paid for at the time and I didn't want to fook around with selling it.

    If you do sell yours, check out this site for your own financial safety:

    BTW, I like the GTI's, I also like the older Corrado...VROOOOM!!!

    yeah finally someone with a taste in cars

    In germany its no fun to drive a GTI cause every 2nd person has one

    If you are thinking about a huge aggregat, try and have a look at the R32 engine. If you want to make a good deal, wait for the new TFI modells, they come with small engines, which are double-turbocharged fitted for huge performance @ low fuel consumption.

    I am personally in love with the R32

    Well, the correct term is mini, but only by technicality.

    You should also consider new cars. Used cars are overpriced right now in the USA, while new cars are cheap. I bought a new car recently and sold my old one to a private party.

    Learn from my mistake: The tag stays with the person, not with the car! After I sold my car, I found out I was supposed to turn the tag into the DMV. Fortunately I was able to get the tag back, but in the process I discovered that the buyer's cousin had been driving around with my old tag on his minivan!

    Also: If you like the VW GTI, you might also want to consider a Subaru Impreza WRX --

    Dont get me wrong but I doubt the Impreza can meet the quality standards of a GTI. Its the little things like wind noise, bad suspension or little repairs that will start to bug you over the years.

    Funny, that's the exact car my buddy at worked recommended yesterday, since he knew I was looking at GTIs.

    I'm pretty set on the GTI at this point though... I guess you could say I'm in love .
