Just wanted to reach out there and get every ones thoughts on the new GLI. Also can some one tell me are projection headlight brighter than stock head lights?

projection is not brighter its just more focused so the light seems brighter.

Bought a 2005 GLI (Black Magic, 6 speed) last weekend. It's pretty fun. Only have 200 miles so far, but have logged some observations.

1-The ride is kinda harsh, but I expected that.
2-The front end drags on EVERYTHING. It's really too low.
3-The Monsoon system is pretty good, but not great.
4-Good acceleration, boost is nice.

Overall, it's damn fun.

I just picked up a new one today and love it. Had 54 miles on it when i drove it off the lot.I got the dark blue color thats amazing in the sunlight.

Congrats! I saw that color and was impressed with it. However, I opted for the black magic, looks stellar in the sunlight as well but it doesn't draw as much attention to itself. My driving record really needs about a year to regulate before I can drive any bright, flashy cars again. So black won out.

Enjoy the car, it's really a blast. Careful of the front end, it'll drag on everything.
