I'm thrilled to report that we now have a new 2007 Volkswagen GTI!

We picked it up a few weeks ago, and it has proven to be a wonderfully designed, feisty vehicle. The GTI is equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine featuring direct injection and a single turbocharger. This translates to 197 horsepower at 5100 rpm and 207 pound-feet of torque at just 1800. So we can now get to 60 mph in about seven seconds.

The only problem with the new ride is that both Cecily and I want to drive it all the time!


  1. One other problem: the irresistable urge to do 85 on Southwestern Blvd. "Cop! Cop cop cop!"

  2. Does it inspire the same sort of issue as in this Rav-4 ad?

  3. The Rav-4 ad is hilarious, and, yes, the GTI does inspire similar issues, but with Scrubs-like fantasy trap sequences instead of real traps!
