Just wanted to drop by and introduce myself as i am not only a new member to this forum but also new to owning a VW. I reside out in Hawaii and look forward to reading up and learning about the many things VW has to offer.

Ride = 2007 VW Rabbit 2.5 (Automatic)

I must say for the car only having 150hp it does get up and go compared to many of the other 150hp cars i've driven, perhaps do to the 5th cylinder.

Got questions ask away. Thanks

I heard the gti 1.8t's the motors are junk and are known to leak oil. This is just what I heard from a couple auto tech friends of mine but I have 0 experience in that department. I've only had my car for like 3-4 days and love it.

I'll try to post a photo.
