2008 VW GTI Turbo up for trade for Full Size Pickup Truck Long Bed: FORD Pickup Truck F150, F250, or ???

Teens and street racers alike seek out this high-in-demand VW GTI Turbo in Los Angeles and Nationwide that is ready for your modifications...My hubby passed away and I am in need of a full size pickup truck/long bed that I will barter/exchange for this stock VW GTI. If you are interested and serious, you can contact me to discuss the details!

The Volkswagen GTI demonstrates how much fun a small, practical car can be. The GTI offers sporty handling, quick and precise steering, and spirited acceleration performance.

Yet it's a practical car, based on the VW Rabbit, and available in three-door hatchback and five-door hatchback versions. The GTI gets an EPA-rated 21/29 mpg City/Highway with the manual transmission, or 22/29 mpg with the Direct Shift Gearbox.

For 2008, the GTI suspension has been lowered a half-inch for a sportier stance. A lower ride height lowers the center of gravity, which usually improves handling. Sirius satellite radio is now standard.
A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers the power, rated at 200 horsepower. The GTI can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 7.2 seconds, says Volkswagen. With 207 pound-feet of torque holding steady from 1800 to 5000 rpm, the GTI responds quickly to the gas pedal at any engine speed.

The Direct Shift Gearbox, or DSG, is bit a of F1 wizardry that can be left in a fully automatic mode or can be manually manipulated via paddle shifters on the steering wheel. Selecting Launch Control allows the engine to rev up before the DSG clutch engages for controlled wheelspin as you leave the line.

The Volkswagen GTI boasts sporty handling and more power than either the Honda Civic Si or Mini Cooper S. The GTI offers either its short-throw six-speed manual or fast-shifting DSG automatic with shifter paddles. With its subtly Teutonic styling, the GTI may not look like a performance car, but those inside will have no doubt about its dynamic capabilities. They also will enjoy the room, comfort and cargo capacity of its versatile interior. They may even come to like that Interlagos plaid upholstery.
