So, Phammy got a new Rabbit (with pics)

Well, last month, I picked up a new 2007 Rabbit GTI 2.0T 6 Speed with dual clutches. Overall, i think it's a great car...a great combination of performance, styling, and comfort. And I've already made a few mods to it!

Anyhoo, here are a few pics:

Dude, I was with you until I saw you had the radio tuned to KIIS fm. What little coolness this thread had just up and blew away. But then again, it is a VW Rabbit so....

It looks like you need to give it some V8.

Nice...I've got to say that I like the GTI...but I like the 2.0T Jetta TDI better.

Is that factory tint, or is it just the pics that look darker?

The only think I'm not sold on is the really open style honeycomb grilles. Perhaps they look more subtle in person...

I drove the Audi version (A3) with the DSG and paddle shifters, and was pretty satisfied. Good car, good fit and finish...overall pretty nice!

I just hope these cars don't end up the next fave of ricers...

No, that's the only way the EXTREME-ness of the car can be captured in a photo.

On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being not so extreme and 10 being extremely extreme, I give this a 7.5!

So they make a regular GTI and then a Rabbit GTI or was the GTI last year and now the Rabbit GTI since they dropped the Golf name? I thought the GTI was seperate from the Golf? VW is confusing.
