    Thanks for your kind thoughts Crankshaft. At least you didn't say bite me.
    I do have many friends that I've met though my years of MINI ownership. If someone buys another kind of car they are still my friend. I'd hope my friends would extend me the same courtesy. Some will, others won't & I'm OK with that. c'est la vie.... :D

    I'll start working on a new logo with a rising sun (Subie/Mazda), a bald eagle (Ford), Big Ben (MINI, Rover, and Jag), and some brats and kraut (BMW and VW).

    I've written on the blackboard 100 times "I won't say bite me on MA ever again". BTW Chuck, as I told you on Saturday that's the nicest GTI I've seen and that is genuine. ( now I hope I haven't pi$$ed off the other GTI owners).

    Sorry Nick, they all went with my MINI. I felt that was the fair thing to do.

    Chuck don't get me wrong, GTI's are of no interest to me but your an ok guy.
    I guess Brian is too.

    Chuck is definitely more than an ok guy! As far as me, it really depends on who you talk to ;)

    Does this GTI have launch control? If so, it must be tested. :)

    I bought this car for me. If I had wanted input on my decision I'd have set up a pole. Crankshaft I think you're OK too no matter what you drive.

    No launch control, it has lunch control. If seems to want to stop at good places to eat.
    If it had launch control I wouldn't use it, but heck I do love pulling the hand brake & doing a 180. :cool:

    I believe it should have launch control. I haven't tried it, but I think it is:

    - in D, turn off ESP
    - switch to S mode
    - get on the throttle
