VW sells the GTI available in automatic... Um, why? Who would buy it? Has anyone bought one?

Uh yeah there is. Check out VW.com, go to build your own GTI and you can select automatic as an option.

Not true. You could get Gti's in automatics as long as you got the 1.8t.

GTI automatic. Ugh, simply seeing the two words next to each other makes me somewhat ill. GTIs were meant to be shifted like the good lord intended.

I don't think GTI's were meant to have rain sensors, and automatic wiper speed control. definetly not weigh 2900lbs either, so there.

Nope, that's the VR6. Mine is a little below 2900.

I got one! not out of my will, out of my arm/shoulder needs. I have a stick BMW, but it screwed up my upper arm & shoulder on top of working in front of computer all day long. I miss the real driving experience!!!
