Hey everyone, After meeting with my High School Counsler on Friday, and finding out my class rank is 35 out of 441, I was ecstatic. When I told my parents, they were even more ecstatic. So much so, that they decieded to buy me a new car for my graduation gift. They said that I could pick anything under 25k. I was blown through the roof, and now am trying to decied what to get. I've narrowed it down to a VW GTI, or a Mini. My question to you guys is, does anyone know, or has heard about either one of these two vehicles? I already have a '95 VW Jetta, and have really grown to love VW's, so I'd really appreciate some info on the GTI if possible. BTW, any other suggestions in my price range would be nice (I know it sounds contradictory, but I'm just so excited!!!) Thanks Boris.
