28 - and my wife thinks I should buy an A4 because it looks more grown up. Of course, she also bought a Jeep Liberty because it looked cool. While your out there darting around all the SUVs - try not to cut-off my wife!
30 here....most of us older dub dudes that make more $$$ than some of the younger crew around here might be lucky enough to afford this thing.....too expensive IMO by far...but still interested in considering it though...you gotta you know?...

First off, you really can't buy jack sh^# for under $24,000. Not NEW at least. I don't think the price is the problem....and that's assuming MSRP will be roughly what was predicted (below $23,500). The 337 won't be a world beater-type car, but it's a good step forward from what the GTI was last week....and the price hike is warranted because many of us who were not considering the sloppy and bloated GTI will now consider this 337 car, right? Those improvements must be worth something. We're all here, aren't we?
i'd have to agree w/ shelbycsx...i'm 32, and it seems reasonable considering it takes out a lot of the hassle of having to do similar mods yourself...i'd much rather have it done for me, although i certainly understand the enjoyment/excitement factor of performing the mods oneself...and if that's you--more power to you--for me i'm looking for simplification.
20, but I'll be 21 when it comes time to pick up my 20th Anniversary GTI. This is the perfect self-congratulatory gift for graduating from college, what do you guys think? Now my Corrado won't be lonely. Rock on Jamie and VW Vortex! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

That is a lot of car for the money. The wheels, tires, and seats would cost at least 4k seperately... I'm scraping my pennies together....
It's a ton of car for the money. I started adding up the cost of all the parts one day, and stopped when I was approaching $5K - and that didn't include installation...
What I like about this Gti is that it makes a excellent second Gti. It looks like the perfect daily driver with just enough tuning to be truely fun. I don't see this as a tuners car but one to be left alone (a chip maybe) so you can concentrate on your other dub and still have something fun to drive. People that plan on adding new suspension, brakes, wheels, etc will be better served buying a regular 1.8t. BTW I'm 28 and will be driving my 337 on my daily commute with a silly grin.
